Pray for Ukraine! And the people's freedom!

Postby AlexKx » Fri Feb 21, 2014 6:24 am

Pray for Ukraine! And for the people's freedom! TWO classic Queen concerts were performed in this country over the last few years AND were recorded and filmed professionally one of which was officially released as both an audio two c.d. set and a live d.v.d.! It was Queen + Paul Rodgers on "The Cosmos Rocks World Tour 2008 Live In Kharkiv, Ukraine!". There was a crazy amount of people there at two hundred THOUSAND in the audience!!! The same amount of people showed up a few years later for Queen + Adam Lambert Live In Kiev, Ukraine 2012"! That one has not been officially released commercially either on any type of audio or film format though (other than the concert's original live broadcast). So pray for peace, freedom, and capitalism in the Ukraine and all of its people! :)

...and to all of the Queen fans there I for one am praying for you all (including friends and family)! Please take care and I wish you all the best of luck! Sorry about the crap that's been going on but I hope that things work out for the people's freedom and ability to practice and participate in capitalism with limited involvement in whatever government. Those two Queen concerts were very special in many different ways but one of those were the people at both shows! Awesome! I hope more Queen concerts happen there in the future as well! Take care!

Queen and Adam Lambert did indeed play in Kiev in 2012, but Queen & Paul Rodgers played their show in Kharkiv.

The 2012 concert in Kiev can be found on youtube -- gorgeous fireworks at the end of the show (instead of firebombs):

Still trying to sell him to us? Seriously, stop wasting your time. :roll: He's probably the cause of the riots. :shock:

You wouldn't know it if that's the only history of the place.
Gorgeous fireworks to be found all over the place, so are concerts, but that's not what this thread is about...unless I missed something. Anyways, I'll be sticking to fd's news thread about this, lots more important and reliable info about going on there past and present instead of gorgeous fireworks at a Q+AL and EJ concert.
I think the well being and safety of the people there should be first and foremost, and it saddens me that it's not to many.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

What is happening here in Ukraine is really sad. More than 100 dead. Riots all over the country. Thanks God our f*cking president has now left, and is trying to hide his ass in a safe place. Things don't really look any good yet but it's got a bit better ever since.

Warrant is out for Yanukovych's arrest today, issued by the interim president, its thought he's in Crimea.

it's thought Yanukovitch escaped Crimea in a russian boat, helped by russians... but having there the russian fleet.... it's gonna be hard / impossible to take him out.... did you see the photos of his mansions? Damn!
The government was gonna be voted in the square today...

Russian troops practicing war games on the Ukraine border is a scary thing.
