Queen+ Paul Rodgers are coming to Milan...
English translation: Thanks to Fabiola M.
Queen join and “challenge” the past by a new singer.
At Forum all their “hits”.
We must wait the rehearsals on the stage before giving judgments. Queen, one of the most famous rock band of ’70 and ’80, go back play live.
The last time was in 1986. Then stop it. Since Freddie’s death, struck down by aids in 1991, only some appearances were by returned members for charity show. During a time we had thought making a great group, together with Robbie Williams, or George Michael.
But, weighing the pros and cons, they chose avoiding to get in the circus of reunions that aim to heart but relieve fan’s wallet. After years Queen changed idea and go back. In the side of Freddie Mercury is Paul Rodgers, ex singer of Free and Bad Company. Will be able the new band (together with the singer are Brian May, peerless guitarist, and drummer Roger Taylor) holding the comparison or just will be crush by the myth?
The wish for Queen is on the top: their compilations get always the hit in the top ten and the ticket for Milan and Rome concerts are no more available.
There is great waiting by the audience. It means two choice: great success, Paul Rodgers exploit, new Queen’s records, otherwise a big flop, band’s stained reputation, putting on the line the gold egg collection. Taylor says: after Freddie’s death we thought that we would have never got a tour.
Then we took idea in consideration to get it together with other persons, but it was wrong. So we meant the things had took for fold and nothing else. Then the meeting between May ad Rodgers during the party to celebrate the 50° anniversary of Fender Stratocaster guitar (the most famous guitar in the rock world). The duet shined.
May says again: Paul doesn’t look like nobody. We don’t make anything, as Freddie was alive. We can play again those songs by somebody who understand what we get. Rodgers speaking: I’m worked up and the challenge calls myself. Some of their songs are perfect for my voice, for others I will have to bring different course.
But what about the songs? The concert will be a compilation of Queen’s hits mixing with (another challenge) songs belonging to bands in which Rodgers sang.
“Bohemian Rhapsody”, “A Kind of Magic”, “Radio Ga-Ga”, (how we wish by Taylor’s voice), “The Show must go on”, “We will Rock You”, “We are the Champions” couldn’t miss. As long as to betray fans trust. But the band is sure to made impression - The official web site (www.queenonline.com) sells a pre-printed cd for the occasion with sleeve, but without music. After all concert will be possible downloading the song and to copy the concert’s album.
The concert in which we were or that we would wanted to be.
