Somehow I missed the entire concert was up in one piece. I've probably only seen a couple cuts.

I knew he had energy and all this, but man! From now on this concert is going to be my energizer at night when I think I'm wore out, lol. I needed that!


I got as far as DOTL and hit stop. I can't sit still that long!

Jeff's Dragon Attack is amazing! You can stop the video and then go back and it picks up where you left off!

Jeff is a truly nice guy also...But to me the biggest thing is the set. I would just love to hear B&R on some of those songs again!

And there are certainly enough of the "big hits" for the general crowd too so it could work for everyone involved...ah well...a bit of a pipe dream...

Yeah the same songs for the most part they've been doing since 1986. With QPR they did the same basic Queen songs. When they started with Adam they did add a few more since they weren't doing of any of Adam's stuff like they had done with Paul's...

BUT there is room to do so much more.

QE of course. I would love to have seen B/R do a QE set also. Nowadays when B/R do a show you automatically know you are automatically getting:

Bo Rap
WWRY
WATC
Crazy
AOBTD
FBG
Guitar Solo
Love Of My Life
AKOM or Days
Break Free
Ga Ga
Seven Seas
Somebody To Love
Killer Queen
Under Pressure
Tie Your Mother Down
I Want It All


Then they pick from the following: Set opener of either One Vision, Now I'm Here, or Hammer To Fall, a mid song ballad of Show Must Go On or Who Wants To Live Forever (or both)

Every once in a while they go somewhat new and exciting but usually it's temporary and goes away: Love Kills, Save Me, Play The Game, Dragon Attack.If they could retire a few tracks for awhile...FBG, AOBTD, Crazy, Break Free, I Want It All, TYMD and Roger could pick a few different RT tracks for himself....Lots of stuff.

I stuck The Game in the car player today, I would love to see QE perform that one. They already do a few, a couple of others I never hear unless I play that album, and I love them! Rock It especially, and Need your Loving tonight which sounds more like Badfinger song than Queen.

After hearing Francois' cover of David Bowie's part in Under Pressure, I think he would do a great Rock It! Think I'll try to find the audio on youtube and send it to him. ;)

There's a couple of things you need to know about that Queen Convention Jeff Scott Soto gig.

The band learnt that entire set for just the one performance! They normally played Jeff's "own" material, which only included just a couple of Queen songs.

The piano parts were played by Jeff, recorded previously, played over the PA and the band synced their live performance to that.

On another night at the same convention, they did an acoustic Queen set of approximately half an hour.
