It would be fun to see this band on a bigger stage with 5000-10000 people. It is a different game that I think would suit them well. I dont know how that could happen, but I think festivals/warm up or something. Any chance of that happening you think?
I doubt it. Seems like Roger/Queen & Co. want to play it safe.
They had that kind of audience in North America here and there, and I KNOW they'd get audiences that big in Brazil but who knows what the Boss's plans are.
Here's a comment from Marc about last night' show:
What a first show! At one point during the concert, I stepped off side-stage during one of the tunes one of the other guys sings - can't remember which - and told Paul Bond, our tour manager (yes, that's his real name, and he's been there with us every glorious step since 2012), that I felt this was our best first-show-of-tour yet. Like riding a bike, I tell ya. First nights are typically a little, um, revealing of things you inevitably have forgotten and need to brush up on. Especially after a year off.
A clear stand-out moment for me was the newest addition to the set list: "I Was Born To Love You." Nothing like a new song to inject extra energy into the performance. Such a fun song to perform! Queen + Adam Lambert performed it a few times this year to great crowd response, so we figured we'd give it a whirl. Looking forward to really dialing that one in and truly making it "ours."
Right! Who's next? Salisbury!
.It is my uppermost hope that even histories' genius's lost their minds as they aged. I'd hate to think that I really am an idiot. sjm
