I only saw Lisbon so far and haven't watched any of it back or any of the gigs since, but really enjoyed it despite there being some obvious first night hiccups. Apart from the noticable lack of enthusiam in comparison to last year's gigs for AL's Frank/Head 'joke' and the bloody bike, the audience was incredibly receptive and lapped up the show. Have you been following proceedings...?

Yes, I have been watching as much as I can. Trying to keep my thoughts away from here for a change.
I will say this, I really like PTG. I hope it stays in the set list.
Other thoughts...not sure if I should state them here, but what the heck...Tear It Up is weak, don't like it at all. I find the placement of RGG very strange.
As for the cape, Coronet, bike, Frank, the banter...my feelings are the same.
I hope to watch or stream future shows, but those are some of my thoughts so far.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
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~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

Just one observation from me as a person, who isn‘t a native speaker: the „head-joke“ goes mostly over our heads, because most people haven’t heard of that saying. ;) So when the audience didn’t react to it in Lisbon, than doesn’t necessarily mean, that they didn’t like the joke. It’s more likely, that they didn’t get it.

Knowing Adam, I had an idea, what it could possibly mean, when I heard him use that term for the first time. But I had to look it up. From the reactions in Prague and Munich, I would say that 9 out of 10 people didn’t understand it.
They loooved the bike though. :lol:

Queen + Adam playing in Oslo, Norway today 17.06.18.

For the first time since the 1982 tour, Brian and Roger are playing in Norway again. Queen only played once in Norway, so this is an historical event.

I just checked the available tickets for the upcoming shows.
Surprisingly there are Onstage Seats available (again?) for Rotterdam and today in Oslo. Usually they are immediately sold out.So, if interested: Go and snatch them.

So, after Germany lost in the football world championship :roll: , I wanted to listen to the live stream of the QAL-show in Oslo. Found out, they started early today, but the sound is nice and clear.

Commiserations, Nicki! We are all surprised Germany lost. :shock:
Have great time tomorrow. I heard that Berlin shows are the best in Germany.

Thank you! The German team played bad enough, I wasn’t surprised by that outcome. :?
And yes, I‘m really looking forward to the show tomorrow! :) I don’t think, that the audience in Berlin is special.
But Adam is usually in a great mood: he loves the city, since he had stayed here for almost half a year in 2003 ( he played in the musical „Hair“), when he was 21. Coming from the US, he really and completely enjoyed the free spirited life here. He left the US as a blond, innocent and inexperienced young man and came home as a black haired guy with a new clothing style, who wasn’t innocent any longer and whom his friends and parents barely recognized. He loves Berlin. And you can see it every time, when he performs here. The shows have some extra kick. I hope, it will stay this way! :lol:
And I will be able to compare the audience as well: I‘ve seen QAL now in Berlin (2015), Cologne (2016), Prague, Munich, Wembley (all 2017) and now again in Berlin. I think, the best audience so far was Munich. Maybe, that will change tomorrow. :biggrin:

Haha, let's see if there's a difference - I was also in Munich last time, but afair the audience was really loud there, biggest positive reaction from the crowd I saw at Olympiahalle so far besides Roger Waters last week.

Looking forward to the show today! Have to catch the train... :D

I can see one Adam Lambert cover and one Brian May cover on that list also. Wondering if Adam's song will be performed in London?
