    ulti, can you fill me in?

  2. ultimathule says:

    If I’m reading Dr. Bri’s tweet correctly, could the surprise tonight be Gaga?

  3. asmallworld says:

    Oh. THAT Ms. notdoingsowell.
    Ugh. Neutral

    I really hope they don’t. Tonight doesn’t need to be about doing any favors…

    Those fans deserve better.

    I also think that it could royally tick off some Queen fans.

  4. asmallworld says:

    I suppose if she does end up performing…. it would be under the auspices of paying homage to Freddie. Being that he is an inspiration to her, she may sing one of his songs.

    Regardless, this show is not about shock & weird.
    (sorry if I sound offending to any gaga fans. I truly do respect her gifting & talents)

    This something different all together. QAL is elegant, classic & regal.
    Gaga is, well . . . . very different from that. Two totally different approaches to music. Would be an odd mix, imo.

    Honestly hard to imagine Gaga looking ‘normal’.
    But anyway, my view is not about costumes . . . It’s about a very different persona.

    Okay. I’ve had my say.

    You know, cher I had totally forgotten about that.
    And who knows? If she crashes the party, the audience may totally eat it up.
    One would hope for their sake, anyway.

    I hope if Adam does duet with her, he doesn’t hold back. Show her who’s Queen!

    Sums it up for me – then it’d be fine –

    Possessed in Sydney!

  13. asmallworld says:

    One more thought:
    With all the PopArt bizarreness… there may be intent to “normalize” her a bit? Thinking

    Queen was fantastic, Adam Lambert was ridiculously amazing.

  16. asmallworld says:

    ulti, cher…. Really, if Adam’s Sherwin pants get any tighter… he might just
    cut off his circulation…

    (love how he likes to live dangerously. hehehe. DroolRazzGrin)

    @DrBrianMay Awesome gig in Sydney last night! Adam Lambert proved a great choice as frontman. Wish I could have met you tho. Fan 40 years!

    Ok I admit I was a non believer! Could he fill Freddie’s shoes? I’m pleased to report that @adamlambert did an amazing job! He is talented, witty and sooo good looking (ok I know his preferences don’t lie with my gender!). I enjoyed this show much more than I thought I would and relished the chance to rock along just like my old rock chick days!

  23. ultimathule says:

    Does anyone know if there’s a stream of any kind for tonight?

  24. eywflyer says:

    Tonight’s Sydney show #2 thread will be automatically posted at 4 AM EDT (6 PM in Sydney).

    I have not seen any info on dinner for tonight.

    Since the show will be on from midnight to 2 AM here in Hawaii, I’ll probably be asleep. Will get the thread updated on Wednesday.

    Off to a royal affair

    So Gagas definitely going…….can’t imagine her sitting in the audience with all the hordes like Adam does when he goes to a concert….and I can’t imagine that she won’t get up and sing if she’s there.

  28. asmallworld says:

    (Why do I feel like Maleficent is on her way – lol)

    Thank goodness she’s not sporting her black curly Brian May look-alike wig.
    That would be just ridiculous.
    Or kinda comical. (thing looks like a fro)

    I can’t decide … LOL

  29. ultimathule says:

    I can fully admit Gaga’s talent/drive/smarts, but still have no interest in her whatsoever.

    shoshanna stone @shoshannastone… love this @adamlambert @QueenWillRock

    Shosh approved –

  32. asmallworld says:

    After all these incredible pics & videos. . .
    I really don’t see any difference between apparent “activity” in
    his snug black stretchys … his Under plenty of Pressure pants . . .

    … and the Great Whites.

    So he may as well wear ’em, dangit!

    I wonder what is there not to like? Does he look at himself in the whites and think,
    “Do these make my butt look big?” lol
