How do you rate 2019 as far as live concerts and releases ? Are you happy ? Or do you think it has been awful ? Have your say, I think it has been a bit dire,i am not interested in Queen & AL although they are very popular. Mind you so was syphilis back in the day. Freddies box set was pretty boring,i was so hoping for a Live Killers box set at the very least.

Good for the active duty members Brian and Roger. Bad for film and releases.

Heard that some liked the MBG remixes though.

I still haven't bothered with em.

Great postings put up here however. You guys are more commendable than QPL. Give yourselves a pat on the back ;)

Overall it was a good year for Queen. Note that I say Queen. For the fans though it was kind of mixed. The Ballet for life release and never boring weren’t bad, but we didn’t need that stuff. We wanted Live Killers 40 or Hammy 79, not a ballet film that no one asked for. For me it was an average year. It wasn’t as great as last year, but still a descent year. Their doing strong on their tour with Adam and it seems they aren’t stopping for awhile. 2020 will probably be another bland year in my opinion.

Concerts? I don't care about QAL. Releases? Which releases? I honestly can't remember what they released this year, I remember I didn't think it's worth downloading for free and now a few months later I don't remember what it was. So ... from my point of view huge disappointment.

This year has been great. The band now have a new generation of fans. I don't think the band have ever been so successful on a global scale.

Q+AL shows the demand for Queen, people want to see Queen live - there's just that minority which don't appreciate it even though on the whole is great for Queen's legacy.

Why do you feel that's important?

band lineup changes work when they maintain/improve upon the product quality of the original lineup.

Deep Purple mkII and mkIII did so. Various incarnations of UFO did. Iron Maiden's second lineup did. Pink Floyd did. ELO did.

Queen+AL does not do this. There has been no "product" and the live gigs are not really a queen show...they're and Adam Lambert show singing karaoke Queen - with "authentic" backing band.

God, so much fucking moaning. Just enjoy Brian and Roger's output while they are still on this mortal coil.


This place used to be great, but now it is an absolute joke.

I'm not miserable at all, I'm very happy and I hope you have a great time at the shows, personally I don't care if they are still touring, but reality is this produces crappy releases, not sure why you don't get that...……..

I'd have to agree. Over the last few years, we've had deluxe releases and a couple of box sets - but the longed-for anthologies (for us completists) appear further away than ever before.

it's not moaning. it's objectivity. people either love it or hate it. i respect people's right to love it, but i don't.
there are singers out there that I'd go and see singing with Queen - but unfortunately, most of them are either dead - or don't want the gig anyway.

i'm glad that you are enjoying this lineup, but you shouldn't really be dissing the opinions of those who don't like it.

How is it great for their legacy?



1. The success of the band in the future after the older generation have gone it will guarantee that there will still be many fans of the group.

2. To prove that Queen are still a successful, popular band. They have always been a great live band and in my opinion still do today (I'm ignoring Adam because you'll just complain, I'm just thinking about the backing band). Their harmonies are all live - and my god they can all sing. Did you see that recent Queen documentary? I bet you didn't. Their musicial backing is top notch and they rarely have mistakes or technical mishaps.

In my opinion, you shouldn't be moaning about Q+AL without watching that documentary, because some of your points are out of context. You can see the real meaning and why they are even still performing. And, I'd say no more than a third of it mentions or involves Adam - it's a Queen documentary for the first 20-25 minutes.
