For what it's worth, my opinion of the Q+AL version of IWBTLY is that it's an absolute joy! Why this is not a staple of the live set is beyond me, even Brian's take on the solo is exceptional. Please play this song in the up and coming European shows, it would go down a storm :-D I personally would love to here more songs played by Q+AL that Freddie never got to perform, Breakthru, Headlong, Scandal and You Don't Fool Me to name but a few.


I love their version of IWBTLY, too. Are you planning to attend a show this summer?


Unfortunately not, I went to Birmingham (Twice), Nottingham and Wembley last year. I really was hoping for a big outdoor show in London this year, I'm convinced they could've sold out Wembley or the Olympic Stadium but for what ever reason they chose to do 3 indoor shows. I hope I'm proven wrong but the set list will not change either, I understand it's a huge production but they really do need to start to change things up now, each show on this next leg of the tour should have at least one curve ball thrown in........something like IWBTLY or Headlong or even Ghost Town would just be amazing and add interest to a static set list. They are now playing to repeat markets with the same stage show and probably a lot of returning fans, they need to freshen thing up. Open with WWRY then Headlong!, drop the drum solo, change Freddie's sing along to Montreal or Milton Keynes, play a song they've never done before, Made In Heaven for example....something to get people excited about this leg of the tour.


Completely agree, however, most of the up coming European dates are shows in places they didn't get to last time. I think it's unlikely that they'll change things for only four UK shows. . . .

It would be great if they did though.

Apologies if this is common knowledge around here, but what are all these figures meant to represent?

I‘m certainly not an expert, but that’s how I read it:

$1,732,180 promoter‘s income through sold tickets
12,720 / 12,720 tickets sold/ available tickets
1 / 1 number of concerts in that venue/sellouts
Price Range - $195.61, $89.03 Most expensive/ cheapestticket available (without VIPs ? )
Promoter - TEG dainty. . promoter

I hope that helps.

I didn’t think Adam is considered a celebrity by Hollywood standards but the cool pic of him pedaling around Perth is in the current issue of Star magazine which I unknowingly purchased at the grocery store yesterday.

I know I'm a bit too late but - wouldn't any of you guys be willing to sell me the Australian version of the 2018 Q+AL tour programme? I cannot find it anywhere and it's missing in my collection. I'm willing to pay a double or even triple of the original price.

Please PM me if you can help. I've been scanning ebay for months and everybody sells just the generic EU version.

Sorry, Mr.Scully. I have it, but I'm not willing to part with it!
I think, from memory, it's pretty much exactly the same as the North American 2017 tour programme. I'll compare them and will let you know.

No problem, I managed to get one after all :)

Now I'm not able to get the 2017 North American program! :D (Yes, I know it's virtually identical to other versions but it is slightly different and I just need them all... I think I have around 120 Queen/solo tour programs so I must get every single one that exists :D

Then I must apologise again..! I went to Canada to see them in Vancouver and Edmonton in 2017 (as it took Queen 30yrs or so to return to Australia last time, I figured I couldn't wait another 30yrs to see them again!), so again, I do have this programme you seek, but I'm sorry to say I can't bring myself to part with it. You're right. From memory it is almost identical to the Australian 2018 tour programme, but I also understand your wanting to collect them.

My thing is collecting from the different tours I've actually been to see them on. I only missed out on the Asian 2016 tour one, but that was just bad circumstances that made me miss out (delayed flights from Australia, resulting in missed connecting flights in Singapore, terrible Friday night traffic in Bangkok, resulting in me getting to the venue 20mins before the show ... but 20mins AFTER they were due to start, so I'd raced through the foyer to the door, and by the time the show finished, there were no more tour programmes or t-shirts!).

I hope you are fortunate enough to track down what you're looking for though. Good luck!
