MESSAGE FROM BRIAN MAY & ROGER TAYLOR
Direct link

We are shocked and disappointed to have had to cancel the concert in Brussels due to Adam contracting a serious bronchial infection. We would like to apologise to all of you who were going to make the effort to travel and come to our show. We appreciate your incredible and continued loyalty. Touring in winter is always a great strain on the human voice and we are doing all we can to make sure Adam recovers in time to complete our tour.

Our sincere apologies and good wishes to you all.

Brian and Roger - Queen

FRANKFURT FESTHALLE
SELFIE EXPERIENCE (WITH SOUND CHECK)

Direct link

The Festhalle is a venue of exceptional beauty and historical significance. It’s also legendary amongst us, Queen, for being one of the most consistently high-energy steamy gigs on any tour. Tonight [7 February 2015] it did not let us down. For clapping and stamping in impeccable rhythm, and universally committed singing, the denizens of this place cannot be beat !

This time, for the Selfie Experience, we’re showing (in 3-D, of course) the sound check practice video as well as the show moment.

It’s interesting to see this massive and uniquely sculpted auditorium almost entirely empty in the afternoon, while we test all the technical paraphernalia of the show, and then see it packed to the rafters at night with one of the greatest audiences known to Man !

THANKS FRANKFURT ! EI GOODE WIE ? ? ? Til next time.

Cheers !
Bri

AHEADING TOWARDS ITALY

La Republica
Click for larger

Well, here’s a nice article, neatly timed as we head towards Milan. My friend Claudia has pointed out that there has been a bit of a miscommunication somewhere. Apparently they have quoted me as saying something like “Stereograms are nothing but two identical images put side by side” !!! Well, nothing could be further from the truth, of course, so it’s extremely unlikely I would have said this, even in my least lucid moments ! It is the subtle differences between those two images which make the magic of three-dimensional photography happen. So, allowing for difficulties in translation, I hope this doesn’t spoil anyone’s stereoscopic education, or give me a bad name !

But for the rest … thanks La Republica ! and I hope we meet up very soon without mishap in Milan !

Cheers

A great return to Hamburg for us. A highly energised night … Selfies seem to strike a chord. I wonder what this says about us. To me, it’s a good journey, and I’m learning a lot from it.

THANKS BERLINERS

Berlin … another giant hall, called, rather unhelpfully, The O2. (Can’t O2 stop self-advertising now, and give the places some decent names ?!!! ) Not the easiest show for us … some technical problems … but great people.

Here they are … ALL of them ! Thanks Berliners !! I think I just wanted to be closer.

Love

THIS IS MUNICH (+ SELFIE VIDEOS)
Direct link

This is Munich - the famed Olympia Halle - scene of many a former triumph with Freddie back in the day. Of course for us Munich holds a million memories - of the days when we spent literally months in Musicland Studios - becoming more or less residents of the city and getting into way too much trouble. In fact it's true to say that Munich diverted the course of all our lives - all four of us. Returning to the Olympia Halle to such a massive welcome, with Adam in pole position, was a very emotional moment for me.

And thankfully I was sufficiently recovered from the flu to actually be able to take stock and enjoy the audience. I thought it was a very focussed show from us - with time to have fun and break out a bit. That hall is amazing, effectively a giant rigid tent, with a huge floor area - thankfully packed with a crowd of the most committed music appreciators anyone could wish for.

Servus, Good Bavarian Folks ! Til soon, I hope.

iNTRODUCING YOU TO MY FRIEND GARY YOUROFSKY
Direct link

Gary Yourofsky is a leading advocate for animals in the USA. We have been corresponding for some time now, and he’s been a great source of energy for me. What he has to say is completely relevant to the fight against animal abuse anywhere in the world, including, of course, the UK. I’d like more people to experience his powerful presentation - his devastatingly honest and perceptive portrayal of the horrific world we humans have created, and what we can do to change it.

Cheers … Bri
