I was thinking 50ft tall News Of The World robots trampling through the audience picking people up and crushing them before dumping them on a vast blood stained green stage strewn with twisted girders and broken concrete in the centre of which the band would be playing Sheer Heart Attack!

That is interesting! :cool:


Now, Lambert has opened up about how progress is going.

“Well I mean the particulars aren’t quite all ironed out yet, we still have quite a lot creative conceptual conversations,” Lambert told NME. “The one thing that is moving forward is definitely the look of the stage. That’s been reinvented but it’s all sort of evolving as we speak. We were emailing back and forth about how to reinvent the setlist and do it different ways from what we’ve gotten used to doing, and I think its just important.


“We have fans that have come and seen us more than once and many of them that have been around the last four or five years. So it’s important to not feel like were just repeating ourselves, even though we’re gonna still perform the same massive hits that Queen is so well know for. We’re trying to put in different context and give different visuals or companions to them. Its going to be fun, I’m excited for the challenge of tweaking the whole show and making it feel new.”


This year marks the 40th anniversary of Queen’s classic album ‘News Of The World’ – which held tracks such as ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘We Are The Champions’.

Asked if the band might be tempted to play the album in full, Lambert replied: “I don’t know if that is on the table, but that was sort of the main catalysts when we started conceptualising this new tour. We talked about that. That’s definitely one of the key new ideas we would bringing into it. There is definitely gonna be a couple songs from that album that we haven’t done before.”

He added: “Even visually, there are some nods to it. It’s been really cool to use an album anniversary as a focal point for stage design. That might not make a lot of sense now, but when you come and see the show you’ll be like ‘ah OK, I get it’.

What a great set list! Hopefully they read this page ;)
Love that ENCORE...and the openers are brilliant! Just perfect :D
I would ditch FBG and TYMD though - last tours overload.
My ultimate wish would be 'Innuendo' and also my favourite 'You don't fool me'. Doubt Adam could pull YDFM though but would love to hear this song live.

The original NOTW "stage set" was a white three tier drum riser and quite a simple lighting truss arrangement suspended below an aluminium framed canvas crown. It really didn't reflect the stark nature of the album cover and some of the material.

40 years ago it worked, but in today's live arena it would look second rate. The stage (for the US dates at least) appears to be guitar shaped. . . . If this is the case it doesn't echo the 1977 production. I'm keen to see what this is going to look like and how it will be used, I'm also hoping they discard the recent set lists and start again.

I'm not talking actual 77 stage set. I'm talking giant moving Robots!
