nice!

I have to say though, after watching the SYBG clip that was released recently, I found the back up singers too much! They are prominent in on the record, but I had forgotten just how much they are featured in the video. They're basically lead singers I find

Hopefully, Albert Hall 98 will find its way out there too. Perhaps a double feature would be a good idea

I didn't want to jinx it but yeah, Royal Albert Hall 1998 was on my mind as well. And yes, I don't like backgound singers too much. I was so relieved when David Gilmour did not use them on his solo tour. They annoyed me quite a lot on the PULSE-DVD. As if the choreography of those girls is worth watching...

Awesome news.

I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I was hesitant to believe it, given the date the posts were made in here, but I clicked the link and the news was released on Brian's site on 30th March, which means it can't (or at least 'shouldn't'!) be an April Fools gag.

I'd love to see this come out on dvd / bluray ... but like all things Queen related, I'll believe it when I see it! My fingers are crossed though..!

Hope the RAH gig gets included.

I personally think he had a better setlist on the Another World tour.

Finally!

Now I hope the audio was remixed to gave more volume and power to the guitars and to the bass drums.

As one of them is Catherine Porter, I have no problem with that at all! Great voice, and lovely lady too.

The other one, Shelley Preston, is married to Steve Norman, from Spandau Ballet.

Nick, our administrator, handles elements of Spandau Ballet's PR, as well as Queen.

Personally, I think their backing vocals on Brixton, really help songs like Since You've Been Gone, come across.

That's such a good cover.

I honestly don't rate Brian as a rock singer, probably even less covering songs considered as rock classics, but putting all the elements together on THAT song, I genuinely believe it gives the studio version by Rainbow a decent run for it's money.

I doubt Rainbow ever got it quite THAT good in a live environment.
