It was a bit hard to tell, cos some of the songs I didn't know the name of and it was non-stop right from the get go but Wiki says this was the setlist:

"Procession"
"Now I'm Here"
"Stone Cold Crazy"
"Another One Bites the Dust"
"Fat Bottomed Girls"
"In the Lap of the Gods"
"Seven Seas of Rhye"
"Killer Queen"
"Somebody to Love"
"I Want It All"
"Love of My Life"
"'39"
"These Are the Days of Our Lives"
"Bass Solo/Drum Battle"
"Under Pressure"
"Dragon Attack"
"Who Wants to Live Forever"
"Guitar Solo/Last Horizon"
"Tie Your Mother Down"
"Radio Ga Ga"
"Crazy Little Thing Called Love"
"The Show Must Go On"
"Bohemian Rhapsody"
Encore
"We Will Rock You"
"We Are the Champions"
"God Save the Queen"
I'm looking back and recognising the songs now!
What was Somebody to Love like, does Adam do it well, that's easily one of my favourite Queen tracks, love how Freddie used to sing it. Looks like you got your moneys worth, that's quite a set list. Who plays bass for them these days, now John Deacon no longer takes part?

And this year the only concert I'm going to attend (so far) is Madonna's "Rebel Heart Tour"... funnily it's on the same day (Nov 29) I attended my last concert (Marteria)... and it is also in the same venue. :lol:

I'm going to see Adam Lambert on his Original High tour in January 2016 :D Woohoo, I can't wait! I bought a VIP package with merchandise and early entry too. Super amped 8-)

This will be my second time seeing him live after Queen & Adam last year, but my first time seeing him solo. Weirdly, the show is at the Auckland Town Hall, where I saw Blue in 2001 :lol:
