Oh come on we all practically worship a band that wears makeup, and strange get-ups night after night, and now some of you have the gall to slam Brian May for wearing a flashy costume. What a strange bunch of music fans we seem to be.

I saw Queen two years ago in Chicago with two of my daughters, and it was a great show, I would most definitely go see them again at any time!

Queen are too far removed now days from when Freddy was alive. I have seen clips of their live show.

It’s a shame they didn’t replace Ace with a legitimate talent. Probably would have had to pay out a decent salary to someone though...

Mays unique tone and soling style would have translated well to the Kiss sound - he’d had to have worn flats though.

Queen is my favourite band and I still have to ask what in the jet-skiing Christ did I just see?

When you see KISS you expect to see makeup and strange get-ups. When you see Queen you do not expect to see such things. Thus, fans react to it.

Not too sure this was hard to grasp.

Is this somehow a call back to Brian's Starfleet project? There is a robot on that album cover that seems somewhat similar to Brian's costume here.

That's Brian's Dyanasty era costume.

He does like KISS, so...

I suppose, but in my mind the biggest "what the fudge?!" moment Queen ever had was the Hot Space album, and that was mostly Freddie's idea. Artsy types (KISS included back in the day) toss ideas out there and try different things. They usually aren't all solid gold, and that's ok. Just my take.

It was an absolutely incredible show. No issue with the costume (there were many extravagant costumes in the show). The Ghost mask was a little weird. The outfit might’ve worked better within the context of his solo with all the planets and meteor.

Looks more like the "News of the world" robot.

Brian is 6’2 like Gene, so he’d fit right in wearing the seven inch leather heels...

Thats funny - influenced by Tommy's EOTR silver kettle tour outfit. Same designer? He also played a bit like Tommy there - not quite bending properly to pitch, fluffing some vibrato, etc....

Brian is paying tribute to Crimson Glory:

But seriously: what was the purpose of the mask? :scratch:
No relation whatsoever to the song :?:

Brian agrees.

He commented via Instagram that his ear piece wasn't working correctly and he couldn't hear his playing adequately

Still clinging on desperately to that story.........even though Tommy himself has stated that there was no teaching going on at all. How adorable.
