Queen. Live. I have seen.

It's really hard to know what to say about this.

The tour with Adam Lambert seems to be getting glowing reviews, for the most part.

 Queen, in any form, had not been to Australia since 1985 - just couple of years before I started to become a fan.

If I was to be objective I would say their show/tour is rather a strange thing

it felt a little disjointed at a couple of points (or maybe that was just me coming apart)

also, wonderful.

(here is the set list from last Saturday. Dragon Attack was the surprise gem, also '39. Everything was good.)IMG_7828 e
but I am not objective
I am a massive fan
I was totally star-struck
I cried
(I was so glad to be there by myself and not give any thought to what a companion might be thinking of the show)
Freddie would have been 68 today. I can't wrap my brain around that. IMG_7825 e

Did you ever read Good Omens (Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman)? It's hilarious, especially if you listen to it as an audio book.

Anyway, they posit that any cassette tape left in a car more than 2 weeks turns into a Freddy Mercury and Queen tape.

What an interesting show. The effects are unusual.
