Soooooo, have them play: 1) two songs that weren't written yet; 2) songs that had been out of the set list (WWRYfast, DOTL, KQ, IILWMC) for several years, 3) a song that never featured a live opera when performed in concert, 4) the national anthem, that they never played live before, and 5) a forty-ish minute set as compared to the standard twenty minutes...

Frankly, Queen's set was perfect. If anything, I'd've had The Who perform THEIR biggest hits (Who Are You, Baba O'Riley, Won't Get Fooled Again) and the song Pete Townshend wrote for the occasion (After The Fire) than change anything that Queen did.

I agree with you there. At least we saw them do Who Are You at Live 8, and not too shabbily either.

Agreed -- their Live 8 set was great, but much too short. I more preferred their Concert For NYC set, mostly because it had The Ox in it and two more songs (though I can't stand Behind Blue Eyes -- don't throw things at me!). I mean, Love Reign O'er Me is a wonderful, wonderful song -- one of my favorites -- but it's not for Live Aid. I can see why Pinball Wizard and My Generation were played, but to not have performed Baba O'Riley is just a sin.

It was perfect as it was....though in the ideal world I'd have brought Bowie on for a live Under Pressure-then it would have been perfectly perfect!

Watching them clown around at the end of Won't Get Fooled Again remains (to me) a great Who moment, even if ol' Keith wasn't there.

Who Are You at Live 8... I'm probably alone in this, but I kinda like the heavier sound that Starkey gives it, as opposed to the guy who played at Live 8 (I've just had a brain freeze, forgive me...)

All told though, Live 8 was a good show on the part of the older bands. PINK FLOYD, fucks sake!!

Oh... How I would like to redo Live Aid... Here's the list of songs I would like them to play : 1. Bo-Rap ( short version)
2. All God's People
3. Let Me Live
4. We Will Rock You ( for those who didn't come to the concert specially for Queen)
5. Friends Will Be Friends
6. The Show Must Go On
and towards the end of the show - of course - 'Is This The World We Created?' & 'One Vision'.

Instead of Hammer To Fall or CLTCL, I would have had AOBTD or I Want To Break Free as the latter two were surely bigger hits.

Plus each member would have had one of their songs in the setlist; wonder if John felt sore about it...

Bo Rap
We will rock you
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
Crazy Little thing called love
Killer Queen
We are the champions


On that day Radio Ga Ga was fantastic, but it was a song that could be performed badly, but that day they nailed it so it'd have to be included. Hammer to fall is the only one that kinda ruins it!!

Why didnt they play AOBTDust (besides it being about saving peoples lives)...?

The most distasteful thing they could do is play AOBTD.

no. let's play along. where does this progress to?

well if we change live aid...then let's change queen's previous tours, albums and even the line up

so how about queen being Art garfunkel, half of bucks fizz, and two thirds of hanson?
and how about they only perform sogns from T'Pau's back catatlogue?

'nuff said!

He means because the whole thing was about saving lives...

... there were people dying due to hunger. That's why Freddie didn't even sing "build your muscles as your body decays" in Hammer To Fall.

Singing 'Another One Bites The Dust', which means 'another one dies'... is a no-no during the Live Aid concert, since the cause for the concert was to get money for food and supplies to people in Africa, who were DYING.
