Had gone for the Queen+Pual Rodgers concert last evening at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Didn't go expecting much since they are without Freddie Mercury, and everybody kept saying " I would have come but its no fun without Freddie as the frontman".... . At the end of the show all I could think was if they are so good without Freddie, I can only imagine how it would have been with during their peak....They have a decent light show goin on in the background and it was not as packed as some of the other concerts I have been too......but in terms of music it ranked right up there with the U2 concert in Detroit or the Rush concert at Blossom Music Center during their 30th anniversary tour.....They are still touring North America for a couple fo weeks more, and if they are coming anywhere near you I highly suggest you try and make it. Tickets are available for all shows, I think.....
