Maybe we will be surprised and they will add another different song to their set list tonight? How about I Was Born To Love You?

A Kind of Magic ? Wow, they haven't perform it since 1986, right ? Maybe according to Brian's memory they haven't performed it and IWBTLY live at all ! Gosh, that is so interesting and so risky for them !!! :)))

Good show. I was there. Magic was added to the set list.
Highlights were Under Pressure, Killer Queen and the medley that followed, Who Wants To Live Forever.

The sound was perfect but too low volume for my taste. Can also be because I was sitting on the side at Taylor’s drum kit level. Most shitty seats I have ever had. I didn’t see any visuals on the screen.

Band played with pleasure but nearly all songs were played too slow.

I was missing the sweat. Should be much more rock n roll.

^they're old.

They're not even catering to their fanbase.

Yeah.

Probably tired as well. Speed is a young man's game....strange thing is, none of their songs excepting SCC are really "fast" even at that age.

Brian plays on 8/9's mixed in. ..those are seriously LIGHT GAUGE.

Don't know what the trouble is....maybe comprehension.

I'll just shut up. I love these guys despite the obvious flaws in the current tour.

I was there, the show was great but there were many technical problems, Brian had problems with the volume of his guitar, Spike's keyboard stopped working at Somebody To Love.The songs were indeed slow, and Brian played a bit sloppy.

The funniest thing was that he said Albert instead of Adam, Adam responded that it was okay Byron.
That was a fun moment.

Japan isn't in Europe, so no.

Yes, I felt the same last night in Amsterdam...too slow, TYMD for example. I went to Bologna and Amsterdam gigs!

Of course I know. I was being sarcastic! NOTW tracks must return to their shows, if not, well... then the rest of the tour will be jinxed!

Well, I was there too, but I'm less skeptical.
Yes, especially TYMD was a bit slow in the start, but it did get a good vibe during the song. I heard and have spoken many people after the show and they were very positive about it.

This morning I read some praising reviews (both in Dutch): https://oor.nl/concerten/adam-lambert-houdt-queen-fit/ and [23:19, 13-11-2017] +31 6 25073805: https://www.ad.nl/show/een-avond-queen-biedt-nog-steeds-rock-entertainment-van-wereldklasse~ab7d4591/

Yes, it was a 'Greatest Hits set-list, yes I missed specials like SYW and IL, but I had a really good time, just like nearly 17.000 other people.

Exactly! Yes it would be nice to have more songs from the NOTW album, but having “Frank” there to break down the wall in the beginning, provide a new place for Adam to lounge on as he sings “Killer Queen,” hold up Brian in the palm of his hand while strumming his glorious guitar solo, clapping during Radio GaGa and then waving goodbye to the audience at the end of the show as he gently brings down the set to its original spot — THAT is enough!
