As the drumkit slid towards the front of the stage on its platform it caught Brian who fell into Roger's kit knocking over a cymbal, a mic and dislodging a couple of drums. Both Brian and Roger recovered quickly (with the help of a couple of cast members) to complete the song to great cheers and applauses. Once Bo Rhap was complete Brian told the enthusiastic audience: "It took us ages to rehearse that fall. I'm not sure if Roger's kit will ever be the same again." He then introduced Ben Elton who joked that Taylor was to blame: "That's what comes of wearing your sunglasses indoors." Ben also thanked the cast, band, crew and audience.

Brian played a special version of Love Of My Life which Mazz Murray dedicated to her new husband - Oren Arush. I'm not quite sure whether Tie Your Mother Down was sung by Mazz or her sister Gina - the original article was quite unclear in this.

Sixth anniversary of the We Will Rock You musical in Dominion. Brian surprisingly played the full version of Don't Stop Me Now. For BoRhap he was supposed to come up through the trap door with a cloud of smoke but the trap door didn't open because the guy from the crew couldn't find the switch in the dark! Brian at least managed to make his way up and to the back of the stage for the head banging section.

Only C-lebrity and All Right Now were broadcasted. WWRY was played afterwards (as a special bonus for the audience I think), stories about BoRhap are not true (that was just Al's joke; the band played just the final few chords) and also there was this short improvised sketch with Brian, Roger and Paul on backing vocals.

29.12.2007 Dominion Theatre, London, UK (WWRY musical)

Brian's words: "In the afternoon, I just strolled on and played the solo, like the chaps normally do, because there was no time to rehearse with the cast. But in the evening we risked me being on there in the headbanging section too... it was risky because we still hadn't managed to make the radio link work, so I had a physical lead on the guitar. This was the first time I've done an appearance without coming up in smoke in the trap."

Brian and Roger performed this song on the satellite (acoustic) stage. Brian sang the first verse and chorus (Taylor Hawkins sang the second verse), Roger played tambourine and occasionally hit a cymbal and of course, the rest of Foo Fighters played in the song too (Dave Grohl, Jessy Greene, Nate Mendel, Rami Jaffee and one guy I didn't recognize). They sang the song in its entirety (just like on ANATO)

Fifth anniversary of the We Will Rock You musical in Dominion. The evening performance was only for fans, not for general public. Brian May in his white frock coat appeared for the guitar solo in BoRhap and Roger joined him for the rock finale. After Brian's and Ben Elton's speech The Show Must Go On followed (with the cast leads taking a verse each).

At the end of the show, the WWRY cast sang WWRY before a curtain was dropped to show Roger Taylor and Brian May at the other side of the stage. After the guitar solo a brief bit of Tear It Up followed and the show ended with WWRY again, with Al Murray joining in. After the credits it showed Al Murray in bed, waking up saying he had a dream of singing with Queen. The camera panned out to show Brian and Roger in bed with him.

This was supposed to be the final WWRY performance in Dominion (but then the show was extended to 2007). Brian appeared in both performances and played BoRhap. For the evening show he also prepared a short speech: he said the show kept going because of all the the support, especially from the "regulars". Roger was in the audience too.

Superb intro - after a minute of Don't Stop Me Now Brian zoomed up out of one of the traps rising through the floor of the stage into some cool pyrotechnic effects. He performed the rest of the song with McFly, then played a short guitar solo (basically some weird aeroplane noises :) and then joined McFly for one of their songs. Afterwards he exited down the same trap :-)
