The concert begins with an intro tape (Dance With The Devil - in memory of Cozy Powell) and a voice announces that Brian will be late; instead of that his cousin T.E.Conway will perform a couple of songs. Of course it's Brian in a pretty good disguise - but believe or not, a major part of the audience don't recognize him :-) He performs Only Make Believe and C'mon Babe (just the 'Slow Down' guitar riffs plus a couple of words). During C'mon Babe he quickly changes his place with his double so his lookalike - Jimmy May in fact! - can shortly after that announce: "Ladies and gentlemen, from London, England, Mr. Brian May!" During the 'Space' intro Brian slowly unbends (his initial position is same with the album cover) and shouts something like "Good evening ...! Do you wanna rock?" and the band perform Since You've Been Gone as a tribute to Cozy Powell. After one or two tracks from the new album he plays a medley of heavy Queen songs which is always very much appreciated by the audience :-) Then comes the acoustic part which unfortunately includes Driven By You (I loved the electric version!). After the new slow/fast version of Hammer To Fall it's time for guitar & drum solos. During the guitar solo Eric juggles with burning drumsticks which is really cool (unlike his quite a poor solo). The encores include two new tracks - the balladic Another World (Brian without his guitar, only with a microphone) and a rockin' version of All The Way From Memphis. No-One But You is usually the very last song of the concert and Brian introduces it as "almost a Queen song except that it was never played by Queen".

The Warsaw gig was very unusual: Brian's guitar fucked up quite early so the whole setlist had to be changed. See my collection for details.
