Dr. Brian May @drbrianmay Tour Ready !!! Well, almost ! This is me about to perform our ‘Stagger Through”. We’ve now put in 6 days solid production rehearsals for our QAL tour of North America and Beyond. Long days, hammering out new pieces of action - and interaction between us, the performers, and the massive and highly sophisticated beast which is our touring rig. Sound, lights, staging, moving parts, video content, magic tricks, monitoring, costumes, and ... MUSIC !!! I was pondering today that it’s such a shame that the wonderful Beatles never got the chance to indulge themselves and their fans in such a fantasy. Touring life became uncontrollable for them after only a few years of massive fame. For us we’ve had 40 years or more to develop and continuously innovate - and the technical and artistic team we have around us is at the very top level. Having recently spent some time with some of those amazing men who actually walked on the moon, I can definitely see some parallels. What we do isn’t exactly rocket science, but it’s a similar situation, where what you see - the end result on stage - is the result of the work of hundreds of highly talented people. I’m hugely proud of this whole operational team. Best in the World for sure. What’s the Stagger Through ? Well in the theatre they would call it a dress rehearsal. It’s not exactly that for us, but it’s the time when we put together all the pieces for the first time, and run it, warts and all, as a continuous show in our private space. Lots of stops for train wrecks and final arguments ... but at the end of we can make a guess as to whether we actually have a show which works. I believe we do !! See you out there, Rockers ! Bri
I love that they call it a "stagger through'!! It sounds very much like what we call, in theatre, the Tech rehearsal and it comes the day before that actual dress...or it is a combination of both actually!!
Yeah!!!!! We see the first show...I can barely contain my excitement...
"In the response of the audience, that is where the power of performance lives".
Should we take Sons and Daughters as a “new” song on the tour? Or that Keep Yourself Alive is coming back?
I'm just afraid that they'll pick a couple of new songs for the tour, then get rid of them, just like they did in 2017 with It's Late and... (can't remember the other one!) I was devastated when It's Late got chopped so fast!

phronni7: For the person on page one of today’s thread wanting to know which version of “Runnin’ medley, I am pretty sure it is Gasometer ( Vienna) 2016. It is definitely my favorite version. Wish I knew how to bring it over.

atomom: Adam's artistry is in full display: the surprise of hiccuppy gasps right before "new eyes", the sensuous tongue, one-two punch of "damn" smile, head thrown back, body drops to heavy guitar beats, a lusciously looking Adam--all make NE a visual/aural feast.
