This is my setlist prediction. As we are close now and putting together clues from different interviews, etc. I came up with a prediction with the obvious caveat being very NOTW influenced, etc. Of course they are touting how new it's going to be....but let's face it, it won't be half as "new" as they say. So I'd guess about 5 different tracks or so...


1. We Will Rock You (Fast) - QAL has done it before and it was a popular opener at the time

2. Tie Your Mother Down - Used to be up in the set, and I think it's a "shake up" from previous QAL gigs

3. It's Late/Get Down Make Love - I have a feeling they are going to medleyfy the 2...much like the BBC version except I think instead of going from It's Late into GDML and back into It's Late it's just going to be It's Late til the middle where they start with GDML and end it with GDML. I think that's the compromise. I finally get It's Late but it's half of it....that way they don't have to worry about the thunder at the end....unfortunately. I guess half is better than none...Both songs were on a recent Spotify playlist Adam made so it may signify he's trying to learn the words...Of course he had another playlist that had Fight From The Inside on it that Roger seemingly ruled out during his podcast interview.

4. Fat Bottomed Girls - but shorter - not the long jam version - edited down to normal length to go right into

5. Bicycle Race - This was on an Adam spotify he recently made, and a nice part of a medley

6. I'm In Love With My Car - Roger posted it as a tweet as "getting ready" for tour - fits the time as part of the medley and with RT on vox. I have to wonder if the setlist shake up changes the whole Adam first part followed by Brian song, then Roger song, then middle, then guitar, then end. Probably not going to change it up THAT much but giving RT IILWMC here changes it up slightly....then it would allow Adam to get ready for:

7. Killer Queen - Adam loves performing it as does Brian

8. You're My Best Friend - I don't know why - but I think this one is coming...pure gut.

9. Somebody To Love - Has become a showcase

10. Love Of My Life - OBVIOUS

11. '39 - with Roger doing I'm In Love With My Car earlier - this allows them to slip 39 back into the set here

12. Under Pressure - Rog loves it

13. Spread Your Wings - slides into the power ballad of the tour - put right into the Play The Game / Save Me / Love Kills slot - adam will rock this one. Instinct and spotify list.

14. Who Wants To Live Forever - adam showcase

15. Last Horizon - not going anywhere with Brian's solo

16. Guitar Solo - Not going anywhere

17. I Want It All - could work really well with a warm up duel with the full blooded chorus opening out of the guitar solo

18. Another One Bites The Dust - slide it back down in the set as a "change up"

19. Don't Stop Me Now - Will slip in and out - maybe with Break Free

20. Crazy Little Thing Called Love - HAS to be played in America

21. The Show Must Go On - I think they bring it back

22. Bohemian Rhapsody -- OBVIOUS

23. Radio Ga Ga -- OBVIOUS and they like how it follows Bo Rhap I think

24. Sheer Heart Attack - They loved opening the encore with it so why not again. Based on both Adam's spotify and my own instinct

25. We Will Rock You -- OBVIOUS

26. We Are The Champions -- OBVIOUS

28. God Save The Queen -- OBVIOUS

My Prediction on the Setlist. I strongly believe they will do tracks from News Of The World, so I reckon they'll open with the fast version of We Will Rock You, and do tracks they've never done live before like It's Late, My Melancholy Blues, Spread Your Wings and Sheer Heart Attack.

We Will Rock You (Fast)
Hammer To Fall
Stone Cold Crazy
Another One Bites The Dust
It’s Late
Fat Bottomed Girls
Don’t Stop Me Now
Seven Seas Of Rhye
Killer Queen
I’m In Love With My Car
You’re My Best Friend
Somebody To Love
Love Of My Life
My Melancholy Blues
A Kind Of Magic OR Days Of Our Lives
Drum Battle
Under Pressure
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Spread Your Wings
Who Wants To Live Forever
The Show Must Go On
Guitar Solo
Tie Your Mother Down
I Want It All
I Want To Break Free
Bohemian Rhapsody
Radio Ga Ga

Encore:
Sheer Heart Attack

Encore:
We Will Rock You
We Are The Champions
It's so easy, but I can't do it
But some day one day
I should be doing all right

I would love to hear Innuendo... As an opener?
Yes, from News of theWorld my guess is that we will hear : Spread your wings, Sheer heart attack, Get down make love . I bet on those :)
Headlong would be nice to appear too... As well as scandal or Miracle... Let see what of this comes true :cool:

Really like these ideas for the track list
If we think 'outside the box' what do we think the'r criteria might be?
Firstly do they like the track?
Secondly does it sound 'right' when they rehearse it?

These may seem obvious points but could rule out some of the ones we are pinning our hopes on. (its late for me)
I would think something like White Queen or half of March of the Black Queen therefore is a possibility despite being unlikely.
I just hope the changes are pretty radical and not just 'old for new'
Drop akom and stick in You Don't Fool Me for example.
Alternatively drop HTF for Headlong. No harm done there.
I would happily take Innuendo over IWIA any day
Lets not presume that all the changes will somehow reflect the 1973-78 period. As much as I would love to hear Doing alright one last time.

The only one I would think is very unlikely is SHA if only because its a bit of a rabble that may be lost on a lot of the audience.
I'd rather they expelled that level of energy on Stone Cold Crazy again !

Just looking at what Brian has posted on his soapbox...shows a picture ofn the mixing desk and top left there is a screen appearing to show part of the set list but when u zoom in its very pixelated and hard to read but I do believe It's Late and Spread Your Wings are on there....and I could be wrong but I think You Take My Breath Away is on there...trying to decipher the others its quite difficult

Actually it would be a nice surprise if Brian played 'Sleeping on the sidewalk'... He can do it , he proved it some years ago!

There seems to be a higher quality version of the photo on Brian's Instagram page. Here's what's confirmed based on that upload -- don't click if you'd rather stay surprised!

Spoiler! :
Link: https://www.instagram.com/p/BVgOiW6DRQy/

Usual staples there: CLTCL, "Under Pressure", WWTLF, Guitar Solo, Drum Solo, RGG, Bo Rhap, etc.

New songs for QAL tour: "It's Late", "Spread Your Wings" and the biggest surprise of all... "You Take My Breath Away" (somewhat surprising since they've been teasing NOTW and not ADATR) -- and possibly more since the top portion is cut off...

Not sure the order shown is right since WATC seems to be coming before WWRY.

Any guesses as to what's between the guitar solo and "It's Late"? I got excited when I saw "**** BATTLE" up top, but it seems to be Roger and Tyler's drum battle and not "Ogre Battle". :lol:

Some of these we've guessed, but there's definitely some surprising additions in store.

Ahh I can zoom in a bit better. In order from what I can see:
Spoiler! :
Cut off on top - Looks like Crazy Little Thing....as I see ...ing Called L or
Drum Battle
Under Pressure
Take My Breath Away
Who Wants To Live Forever
Guitar Solo
something that *COULD BE* TYMD or ABTD - looks like a 4 letter word so an acronym most likely
It's Late
Radio Ga Ga (not sure what it says next to it)
Bo Rap
Spread Your WIngs
Champions
We Will Rock You
And I can't read the last one.


That one song would be a huge surprise...

That could be right, except that they typically wrote out the full names of those two songs you alluded to in past setlists. Now I'm wondering if this is another new one. :-)
