Production + setlist summer tour 2018

Postby TheHero » Wed Feb 14, 2018 12:27 am

1. Will there be a different production than the 2017 tour?
(Will Frank still be a part of the show, or was he there for the NOTW 40th Anniversary only?)

2. A different setlist?

3. New opening songs, or still WWRY / HTF ?


Or maybe the summer tour 2018 is just an extended (bonus) part of the 2017 tour, and therefore with the same production / setlist.


What are your wishes?

I doubt there will be any changes set list wise and production wise, since as of now the rehearsals haven't even started.

But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I hope they don't for the NZ/AU tour. We haven't seen it yet. I hope they wait until the European tour before a production change. I want to see Frank.

Brian said in his initial post that it was a continuation of the tour with the same production since it was meant to be visiting places they hadn't already been. I know the London shows have been tagged on but the rest are new ones. Guessing there probably won't be any set-list change either. Enjoy grumpy dwarf, the show was awesome.

Perhaps they could add The Show Must Go On, a statement in itself.. and maybe Let Me Entertain You, since it is the Jazz album's 40th Anniversary.

The production will be the same.

A show like theirs costs a fortune to design, construct and then tour with. They won't invest more money into something that only lasts two or three weeks at most.

If anything it would be scaled back, like Brian's Back To The Light winter leg when he returned to Europe/Uk for a handful of dates. I really don't see Queen taking that route, and remember there are still areas the tour hasn't visited yet.

What would be nice and vaguely possible is one or two different songs when they play London having played those venues before. But how knows they haven't played the first of the upcoming leg they might already have a couple of different songs lined up

No more AL solo songs I hope. :-P

I’ll say it again: I hope they add back It’s Late and Spread Your Wings and drop WWFM. It’s still up to Roger what he wants to sing for his solo!
IT'S LATE !!!!!
