I'm guessing the question was meant to be asking if there is one, and I'm safely presuming that the answer is 'yes' given the new stage layout and the supposed never-before-seen/done visual element to the shows.

I know we can by cynical on here about what they're gonna do for this tour, but I think it's only the consistency of Adam Lambert that allows them to muck about with the set list.

So, weirdly, if you currently hate Queen for selling out, the only way you're going to hear stuff that you've not heard for ages, or forever, is if they stay together. Yes it's not Freddie. But then Freddie was responsible for a move towards the 'greatest hits' concept anyway.

The stuff about them being an 'albums' band from Roger is a bit suspect though. After Races, it was pretty much a case of who could write the lead single. Even though we try and paint Innuendo as a reversion, it's still really an 'album' of singles and B-sides. It's not really a whole.

I hope they add "Love Kills" into the set list for the NA tour:

I think Adam did a great cover, but those performances were timed in preparation for the Queen Forever release that year, so I think it is rather unlikely to hear that on this leg. Besides, Brian noted in the RS article that this is the 40th anniversary of NOTW, so I think there's a good chance of hearing some songs from that album. If Brian is keen on this idea, I think that "Spread Your Wings", "Sheer Heart Attack" or "Get Down, Make Love" would be the most likely tracks to enter the setlist.

While it's doubtful that my idea would materialize, I think "There Must Be More to Life Than This" as a Freddie/Adam duet (AL taking Michael Jackson's parts) would work great live. Adam's certainly got the vocal chops and I think it would double as another nice tribute to Freddie during the show.

As for other songs, I may be in the minority, but I'd much prefer "Long Away" over "'39" during Brian's short set.

I heard that they rehearsed "Drowse" before the 2014 New Years' special, though I think the closest we'll get to Roger singing lead on one of his own songs is "TATDOOL", "A Kind of Magic" or a rehash of "I'm in Love with My Car" from the QPR days. If "Tenement Funster" makes its way to the set, I'd be in complete awe.
In the quiet of the night let our candle always burn, let us never lose the lessons we have learned.

Can't find an Official about Warren... link?



Tyler's Dad, Allen Warren shared someone's link about Tyler finally today, and since I have been busy elsewhere, didn't see this here and I don't 'twitter'. I was pretty stoked in my response because this has to be such an amazing thing for a kid that has been playing Queen on drums since he was 3. I mean QE was a wonderful thing for him already. He is so feaking professional and talented at everything he does, musically.

Tyler's Dad replies "shhhhhh". He's quite a jokester, but I found I had a message to me from him that it was true, just not officially announced yet other than the leaks here and there.

I think it's true even if Rufus confirmed it unofficially. So happy for Tyler, what a great opportunity for him - once in-a-lifetime! Rufus + Roger drum battle was a great part of the show and will be missed though.
