Saw them do a rehearsal  gig at French's Tavern on Oxford st Sydney in 1974 prior to doing their Sunbury gig.

I was there...one of the few people in the world to see Queen booed off stage...

The booees were Bogans of the highest order...'cause Queen were bloody brilliant...

The one mistake they made they got most offside...they were over an our late on stage...

And the promoters did not have a back up plan...so there was no music for over an hour...

By then the natives were...err...somewhat restless...the rest is history...

The Maiden 2008 back in time tour, Brissy EC, some dudes down the front decide to beat on each other, the surrounding crowd picked them up an crowd-surfed them to the rather large looking Tongan/Maori security staff, grinning and waiting at the front right of the stage as you look at it. Bruce wishes them 'good luck out in the car park' as they are carted off. He didn't say it through the mic, he yelled it off the stage. One of the funniest things I have seen.

 

There are some scary looking Maiden fans and you don't muck up their fave bands concerts.

Joining as this should be my third film in the movies this year... I know, I don't get out much.

 

Never saw Freddie, too young and lived in the wrong side of the world. I'm very happy though to have seen them live with Paul Rodgers up close and with Adam Lambert just now, feck me, what a great show, best enthusiastic crowd I've seen.

 

The Freddie dude looks good, but, for me, the Brian May dude steals the show, it's spooky! Let's hope it's a good flick, more focused on the band than on the excesses. At least that's my interest.

 

On with the show. This is "Action"*

 

Cheers,

 

Alberto

 

* Guess where that features for a cheer.
