The 2016 tour was mostly a chain of festivals but Queen headlined each of them so they always played full 2-hour concerts. There were some slight changes in the setlists, the most noticeable being the intro. The powerful combination of Flash's Theme + The Hero was later replaced by One Vision (boooring) and even later replaced by the combination of all three songs which was IMO the best option (edit: for Asian tour there was no intro at all and Queen simply started playing Seven Seas Of Rhye as the first song).

Compared to the 2015 tour some songs were shortened (for example Crazy Little Thing Called Love) and overall Queen managed to squeeze more songs into the 2-hour set which was great. The highlights were undoubtedly Don't Stop Me Now, Play The Game and I Want It All.

And funny moments? Watch Brian walk back from the B-stage during the opera section of Bohemian Rhapsody. Priceless! :-)
