They said - apparently - on the same Chris Evans show, that premiered the new songs, that there was going to a UK leg of the, presumably, Queen + Lambert tour in 2015

Watched the live at the rainbow Blu-ray last night, fantastic stuff, love all the early stuff, and it was a thrill seeing the red special looking so "shiny and scratch free" .... Oh and "lap of the gods ....revisited" is brilliant way to end a gig before the encore, even if they did go a little overboard with the dry ice

MUST get tickets for this... O2 Arena, nice! That's gotta be one of the biggest venues they've played for a long time.

Yes, I'm in for this too. Might try and get a couple of dates, babysitting permitting!

Count yourself lucky. They've ignored Wales and Ireland altogether.

2 tickets for Manchester on the 21st for Mrs Jpig and I, around Ł160 but surely one of the last opportunities to see Brian and Roger live.

There are spare dates around the Manchester and London gigs so I imagine they will add those if the tickets sell well. Also, it wouldn't surprise me if they came back at the end of the tour and did a couple of extra nights in the UK, probably at a big venue like the O2. That's when they also might add an Ireland date.

Either way, I'm looking forward to it already.

I'm starting to get a bit weirded out by how old people are getting. Jet Black from The Stranglers is 76 but apparently just gets wheeled on for a couple of songs now - if he actually turns up at all. Roger Taylor is almost youthful at 65 but you wonder about longer term.

I've got 2 tickets booked for Manchester as well - I loved every minute of the Paul Rodgers shows, so I'm sure I'll do the same this time round (I better do for the ******* price!!).

Let Me In Your Heart Again is being used in a Coca-Cola campaign to raise funds for fighting AIDS leading up to World AIDS day on December 1.

Unfortunately they decided to let Orbit have a go on this as well rather than release the fantastic original mix we heard on the Chris Evans show, but after coming to terms with the dramatic difference in styles between the two versions I'm warming to this mix slightly.

The real stand-out however is the brilliant video

Video is great (tons of unseen footage), and to be honest that remix isn't too far away from the original. All of the live drums/guitar/bass/piano parts are still in there.

Just listening to Queen Forever on Spotify , and there must be some rights issues with the Michael Jackson track , it's not on there , very disappointing , but Let me in your heart again is there without the Orbit mix

The official YouTube account has today posted a new edit of the video to fit the original version of Let Me In Your Heart Again



... which just makes things basically perfect IMHO

What really resonates, after all this time, is that for all his hedonism, for all his excess, he really was a very very special human being. I like the rest of the band but there's something behind Freddie's eyes. This "new" video really does convey that.
