The Cosmos was Rocking in Munich

Cosmos Rocks cover Last night the rest of Queen with Paul Rodgers were in the Olympiahalle in Munich as part of their “The Cosmos Rocks” tour – and a couple of fans including myself were there, too,1 and they were in for a great rock concert in which a few old men could show that they still got what it takes.

The stage, by the way, contained a nice video wall showing some animations as well as Freddie Mercury who thus sung Bijou and Bohemian Rhapsody, a smal stage (almost) in the middle of the arena, Oktoberfest hats and accordion for 39, and the guys really seemed to enjoy singing and playing – and (which some folks were searching for here) without support group, the Queen rest + Paul Rodgers (plus Spike Edney, Jamie Moses and Danny Miranda) managed it on their own to rock from approx. 20:15 to 22:30.
