I'm a big, big lover of Kind of Magic live. I think it just rocks.
I always liked all the 86 renditions. But good lord, the 2015 ones are just so cool (or even better) as the 86!
"Oh, Bruno, are you mad? What are you saying?!"
Well... Just take a look at this video: link
From 3:00~5:00, all you can see is Brian rocking, smiling, Roger smiling too... And that is priceless!
Anyways, I just created this thread to say that I'm happy that Bri and Roger are so happy playing. With, without Adam. Whatever. =)
So happy to see them having a great time, and that the doc is playing so well. Some pretty creative stuff in there.
That said - the versions from 2008 were excellent too, with Roger's mini drum kit at the front of the stage.
My favorite one of the tour too. Roger sang it much better than AL sang the rest of the songs - I am not against AL and I actually think he's good, but Roger's voice had a unmatched rock quality. I remember I was there in the Paris concert, this song had me breathless. That was the first time I saw "Queen" live, I thought to myself "Didn't know these 2 old chaps were still that great!"
I couldn't agree more with the OP! This middle jam section were Brian absolutely tears it up is my favorite part of the show. In fact, I've been youtubing every night of the tour just to watch this middle jamming part. Brian hasn't slipped in his playing and he's every bit as capable as ever. What great stuff.
