Sorry, but you'd have to be a real sad bastard to queue from 6am for ANY gig you've already got a ticket for, let alone queuing over night. Fucking hell. I think it's funny they were all Lambert fans queuing over night (which only the mentally unhinged would ever even just consider), and the first Queen fans included some saddo dressed as Freddie.

if you want to get to the front there's a nice trick: buy about 6 or 8 beers, start walking towards the front saying from time to time "hang on guys, I'm getting there - got the beers, the queue at the bar was a bit long".
when you get to the 2nd row, offer some beers to those in front in order to get on 1st row.
It works pretty much every time (as long as you do it nicely and smile).

Also, don't drink too much of the beer, otherwise you'll have t run back to the toilet half way through the show :lol:

LOL, I've done that - it works quite well. Beer will solve almost any problem ;) All of a sudden you're best friends with someone close to the front :P

Mind you, on thing to keep in mind for this gig: I don't think AL's fans are allowed to drink yet.
I'm also quite surprised the gig isn't played early - after all, for AL"'s fans isn't bed time at 8.30? :P :lol:

Bloomin' eck! That is some serious queuing for such an early time! I really can't be bothered to do that, think I'll meet the gang in the boozer round the corner instead!

Great view in Hammy no matter where you are anyway!

So, a possible addition to the set list? That's a nice thing to do for their London fans.

Agreed, I really hope this gets played...tomorrow too as that's my night!

If they dusted off 'Fight From The Inside', my life will be complete!! :)

Considering they have never played Fight From The Inside live I would be gobsmacked.

Personally I was kind of cautiously hoping for White Queen...But I guess that would have been too much to ask for :P

Just me fantasy picking really! By far my favourite Taylor sung song...quite a fave among the likes of Slash and Foo Fighters apparently.

White Queen...my god, what a treat that would be but again...fantasy picking really!

Probably heard it outside rather than seeing it anywhere. Back in 2008 I could hear the soundcheck from outside the venue. I wouldn't get too excited - it doesn't automatically mean it'll be in the set.

Besides the way Lambert sings - it could have been anything! ;-)
