15years today Freddie died. It really seems like yesterday. Still sadens me.
Anyway i was wondering what anyone else thought. When i saw Queen live up to 84 they they were a fantastic, incredible, life changing live band
When i went to see em at live aid the crowd were absolutely buzzing after theyd been on stage. As a fan i was used to that level of performance and i was really suprised how crazy everyone went for them the next day.
Now i saw them 5 times in 86 and that had been replaced by something else completely different.
They seemed to be on auto-pilot. Thats probably harsh.
Dont get me wrong they were still very good but 2 of the times i saw them on that tour they were literally a complete waste of money, they seemed to lack energy and any form of spark whatsoever.
I must say though that Knebworth and the 1st night at Wembley they were particularly good. But even on both those nights they werent a patch on the gigs id seen them on previous tours.
Maybe it was the choice of setlist, maybe it was due to the gigs being outdoors i dont know.
I was wondering if anybody felt the same thing??
