If you're going to a UK show take a banner along with you saying' It's Late or Spread your wings'

Maybe Brian will get the message...

I'm sure they would know, but for whatever reason just refuse to.

It would have to be very large or close in front to be seen.

Yeah so you keep saying. The show is magnificent, Adam is so what ever, you've watched every live feed and video and went to a show and that was magnificent too

And it doesn't matter that they play the same songs compiled from a very short list from a possible 100 + songs (or what ever it is) just as long as you think it's magnificent and Adam is whatever. . .

Never mind the real Queen fans who are aware just how amazing these shows could have been.

Have a magnificent time watching the magnificent Adam in Birmingham on your magnificent PC or laptop or what ever.

Read the glowing reviews from Liverpool which were not written by Moi! LOL. You are wrong. The whole show is magnificent. Adam is only one of 6 very talented musicians on that stage, two of whom are legends and if you are a long time Queen fan, you should appreciate that more than me.

Queen must play:

Rock u fast

Sleeping for selfie stick

The production value of the show is great and the setlist is great compared to what we had to settle for in the Pre-Queen+ era, which was basically Brian and Roger playing We Will Rock You and Tie Your Mother Down. I would say, also, the average Q+AL setlist is better than the average Q+Paul Rodgers setlist. With Paul, we found resignation in saying "well, of course Paul is not going to sing Killer Queen or Lap of the Gods or The Hero..."

But then, Adam has the range and the stage persona to pull it off... even more, THEY HAVE PLAYED MANY MORE SONGS ALREADY. Didn't they play Keep yourself alive, We will rock you (fast) and The Hero in 2012 or so? Oh, and they played Spread your wings AND It's-mother-fucking-Late a few times earlier in the tour, after having advertised it as a News of the World Anniversary tour.
I know Love of my life is usually a highlight (not so much in the U.S., really, nobody sang it in a few shows I went to)... but after you've seen it once or twice, it's not so touching, poignant, etc., but feels forced and rehearsed - because it is.
They pretty much peaked with their first 5 shows or so this tour. They then dropped TWO amazing songs, fan favorites, in favor of I Want to Break Free (yawn), which is not really popular in the U.S. I Want it all shone in the 2005 tour but now it's boring as hell.

Lazy, lazy stuff, these setlists.
Especially knowing HOW GREAT IT WAS ONLY a few days before! They got so much SO RIGHT in the first shows that it makes it so disappointing when they revert to their comfort zone.


For a NOTW Anniversary they SHOULD HAVE OPENED with Rock You (Fast). No excuses. Or the WWRY (Slow) then (Fast) combo like in 1977. Then keep SYW and It's Late in the setlist. GDML was a surprising and surprisingly good addition.

Then you can say, "well, they're playing 5-6 songs from the album.. it's the anniversary. Makes sense."

Don't think IL and SYW will be played at all during this tour.
AL said on Twitter those songs were dropped 'because we felt like it'. Not really a good enough reason.

I think Adam's comment was a bit of bravado. Rather than saying other songs were getting a better reaction.

It does seem a bit strange that they haven't tried one or both or maybe a different NOTW song in Europe or the UK where the audiences maybe a little more accommodating to one or two album tracks

To me the whole News Of The World images for the show and merchandise doesn't sit well with the relative lack of material from the album

Imagine Led Zeppelin reforming for a Physical Graffiti show/tour and only performing Kasmir and Trampled Under Foot - while there were at least three other songs from that album that had been played on tour at the time.

But... (speaking of which)... at least Brian May is still out performing while he still can while Jimmy rests on his laurels.

Jimmy's been busy doing this:

while Brian plays the same guitar solo every night for 40+ years.

Sweetcaroline, I really wish you would stop trying to guilt trip people. Have any of us ever said we aren't glad that Brian is still alive?! What gives you the right to imply otherwise?
