You have to realize also that between then and now, live performance technology has improved greatly.

omg whats wrong with this person.
saying that a MANDONNA concert was better then queen they must be dreaming or on drop one of the two...
if they believe that they've never heard the greatest band in the worlds best work.
becausei believe that wembley was one of there best concerts & for your friend too say it was below zero theres something bloody wrong with that

my brother was saying that he didn't "get" Queen.
(Meaning he didn't get all of us who sit around here talking about them)

If your 'friend' is going to see Madonna then he must also like gay type singers. There isn't a bigger gay-type singer in the world than Madonna.

Please. Madonna has a hundred people up on stage dancing with her. It was just Freddie with Queen, who'd dance, and John would doodle around as well. And Freddie wouldn't lip synch unless it was the rules (certain pop festivals).

If you need a hundred dancers to support your lip synching appearences, you're shit.

The biggest excuse pop stars today (particularly women) use, is that they can't dance and sing at the same time. Look at Freddie... he has much more energy than Madonna and Britney Spears... and remember he performed Bohemian Rhapsody doing ballat, going upside down and being thrown around.

For what it's worth, I went to see Madonna on the Confessions tour too and thought she was truly disappointing. Nevermind the technology, it was merely there to mask her shortcomings, she was inactive,often mimed (badly) and focussed way too heavily on plugging the latest album. She has no sense of humour or humility and when the concert ended I remember feeling even more regret that I'd never seen Queen with Freddie live, because you'd have got your money's worth and so much more from that event.
I could be wrong but it sounds like your friend hasn't got much concert-going experience yet, they may change their opinions when they've got something to compare to.

well - -
i went to see Madonna's live show last summer and i totally liked it!!!
Madonna's shows are more of an art installation than the typical kind of "rock concert" that Queen were/are doing.
Absolutely incomparable to Queen, without a shade of a doubt.
I cannot (and certainly would not) say or judge about which of these are actually "better" - it's a matter of taste anyway...

What would have been the reaction (in the 80's) if Freddie would have entered the stage being nailed to a cross singing 'Let Me Entertain You" or who knows what else???

Queen was a rock-band that played LIVE. You can't compare that to Madonna or any other act of that kind. It are two totally different worlds. Madonna isn't about the music, it's purely entertainment.If people enjoy it, very good! It's not about the songs and the playing but just about the show, like I said.

Personally I'm entertained by the excitement a band playing live can create. I listen to queen(and some other bands too)bootlegs a lot and it's fantastic. It's all about personal taste and musical feeling a bit too, I guess. Most people only care for what sounds catchy and sometimes even not here whether it is performed well or not!!
I can't understand Queenfans make such a fuss about these things. enjot the things you like. The opinions of others aren't important. And I can assure you 1 thing:Queen were(and now with paul rodgers too)an amazing live band:-)

OK...it's stating the obvious to say that most of us here love Queen. However, aren't there other better things to worry about than their reputation? There is more to life than Queen (although they do provide the best soundtrack to life :-)
