I don’t know of anything, that’s planned between these two concerts. The boys will probably fly back to London and rest a bit until they are off to Milan.


Here is an interesting bit, that I just found about sound and monitors used at these gigs. They changed it up a bit. Lots of technical stuff...

I read that Roger guested with Nick Mason of Pink Floyd at a show recently - don't know if it was a private or public one but Mason is going on tour with his own band doing early Floyd stuff so was possibly warming up for that.

Wonder when the concert for the lifetime achievement awards is (Grammy's). Just a thought?

I wonder if there will be any changes from the last tour in terms of the stage setup?

I imagine the guitar shape stage & b stage will remain the same but wondering if the robot will feature as heavily as it did in the previous tour?

As for the setlist I wouldnt expect a huge change but I'd like to see Adam tackle something like Its a Hard life or Headlong :P

One of the reasons I like this man is because he is so gracious and well-mannered. He must be getting sick of the same old questions about performing with Queen and 'stepping into Freddie's shoes', but he always answers them respectfully, wholeheartedly and warmly. Absolute respect to the man.

I think the whole setup of the stage, including the featuring of the robot, will stay the same, because they are continuing their European tour, that they started in November. Now they play the cities, that didn’t fit in last year. I‘ve seen pictures on Instagram from the crew, who is already rehearsing for a few days and it looks the same.
It’s only the UK, who has already seen that show, so maybe some changes there, but I wouldn’t count on it.

I hope, they will change the setlist a bit. I have especially high hopes, that „Save me“ will be back, because Adam had this song on his mind a lot in these last few weeks. He mentioned it in an interview as the song, he would have liked to sing with Freddie. And last week he even started singing it live on Instagram, when a fan simply asked him to sing something. Maybe he had just been practicing it?
In a video from yesterday, he had an instrumental track of „Hammer to Fall“ playing in the background. So that will stay.
Anyway: I hope of some changes. „It’s A Hard Life“ would be really good. I would also love „Too much love will kill you“.

The only change, that I do know of, is that Adam will have new costumes. Maybe the pink suit will be gone? :whistle:

The boys were out doing some interviews together this week. Here is a short clip from Spanish TV. I guess more from this day will surface soon. http://www.rtve.es/m/alacarta/videos/te ... ?media=tve

I'd like to hear something from the last 3 albums (besides IWIA), but I guess they won't change something on these upcoming dates.

Adam promoted the tour today on „Sunday Brunch“. There isn’t much news, but he mentioned (at ~6 minutes), that QAL is „working on a new one“ for this tour (meaning one of his solo songs).

It’s starting!!
The band is off to Lisbon. Brian and Adam just posted pictures from the plane in London. If anyone wants see them at the airport: their new private charter is easy to recognize, because it has the Queen-logo on it!
The picture from Brian:
