Isn't the Wembley concert tonight? Does anyone have links to live feeds?

Brian is getting assistance getting through LOML, those there are saying he is sick. They said Adam was trying to help him get through.

At the end, Brian said "Well, that went well!". He's doing the selfie stick schtick now. Apparently his voice is only cracking? And I don't mean cracking good.

We thought Brian looked tired when we saw them on Tuesday. There is only one show to go - fingers crossed he'll be OK for tomorrow!

I was there...Brian has a virus. It didn't affect his voice too much on Wednesday, but today it was quite croaky. Luckily he only does lead vox on the one song and we all sang it to him anyway.

Brian's guitar playing wasn't as sharp as usual tonight either. Wednesday was note-for-note spot on, tonight was quite rusty. Birmingham tomorrow is going to be a drag (not going to that tho).

Just got back from the gig and again what a phenomenal evening! Everyone there left with beaming smiles on their faces. The whole show was awe inspiring.
They have still got it and Adam has grown into the role so well, gets better with them every time I see them.

No setlist changes but the crowd reaction to all the hits proved it was a setlist that worked for the masses.

Brian said he had no voice due to a virus he picked up a few days ago so got the audience to sing LOML though he did manage a few lines. He kept his speaking to a minimum. It didn't seem like Adam had to help him through it how can he? His good lady wife Anita Dobson was in the audience to watching the show.
Roger looked fit as a fiddle.

2hrs flew by but loved every second

I wasn't there, I was listening through an audio feed, and all of my information about that came from the person there sending the audio to the remote place the feed was going to. I took the woman's comment as Adam started singing. Indeed it sounded like he was, somewhat subdued for a change. The crowds very soon added their own too. What was said matched what I was hearing.

My apologies if that was horseshit.

At last, a well written online review! And she knows her stuff.

I wonder how she got into the Wembley after party at Kensington Roof Gardens though? As she was only 15 at the time, I am guessing one of her parents must have had some connection to the band.

Good review.

Since the Tour goes on now in New Zealand and Australia, I just revisitem my pictures and a few little videos from the gigs I attended. The last one was Wembley. I only recorded one song (Who wants to live forever). I love the video, because of the great lightshow and I think the audio isn’t too bad either. Because this thread is a little empty, I will leave the link to my video here:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=MQgsmhL1K7s

Besides: It was the first time for me to attend a concert in England. I loved it and the audience was singing very well. Unfortunately I had a seat in a block, where everyone was sitting glued to his seat. While I was up dancing in Munich to several songs, I had to stay seated this time :? . I really have to say: Wembley was better at singing (but not much!), but the Munich audience was more dancing and standing. It took my block in Wembley until the encore to get their asses off their seats. And I ( as the „outlandish girl“) finally had to take the lead - I swore to myself, I won’t stay seated during the encore! And voila: all my neighbors got up after me...

The most astonishing moment in Wembley to me was the applause, that Adam got, when Brian said his name. It was huge!!!! I have been to 5 QAL-gigs since 2015. Usually Brian and Roger get a huge applause (naturally), when Adam introduces them ( I think the longest I heard was in Munich. It didn’t seem to end there.) And then there is the biggest applause for Freddie, when Adam does his little speech. And some time later Brian „introduces“Adam for his round of applause, which I have always felt, is a little bit less than the others (naturally, I think). But not in Wembley: At first, the applause for Freddie was much less enthusiastic than in Prague and Munich. I was really surprised by that. Then the applause for Adam really hit me: it was loud and even the ground was shaking from stomping feet! I had never expected that! I talked to a few other fans, who sat somewhere else or stood and they had the same impression.
All in all I felt happy about a great gig and as an Adam-Fan as well as a Queen-fan, that he, as their current frontman, has arrived in the hearts of most of the attendants at that concert. :)
