 Video ed altre cusiosità sul concerto di Kharkiv
NOTE: Show a scopo benefico, atto a raccogliere fondi per sostenere la lotta all’AIDS in Ucraina.
- Bijou e Bohemian Rhapsody sono state accompagnate alla voce dalla voce registrata di Freddie Mercury;
- Bijou è stata interpretata dal vivo per la prima volta in assoluto;
- Sono stati suonati solo tre brani dal nuovo album: Say It's Not True (versione album, cioé cantata da Taylor/May/Rodgers), C-lebrity e Cosmos Rockin', ma nelle prossime date la band suonerà quasi tutti i pezzi inclusi in The Cosmos Rocks;
- Taylor si cimenta in un "assolo" di basso: nell'attesa che i tecnici montino il "mini" kit di percussioni, gioca picchiettando con le bacchette sulle corde del basso, tenuto da Danny Miranda.
Uno stacchetto originale, che ha visibilmente divertito il pubblico.

Stasera concerto gratuito a Kharkiv!
Topic: Rock the Cosmos Tour

Ieri pomeriggio a Kharkiv (o Kharkov, come dicono in Russia), in Ucraina, si è tenuta una conferenza stampa (durata circa 45’) atta a presentare il concerto che i Queen e Paul Rodgers terranno questa sera nella grandissima Indipendence Square.

 

Come è trapelato già tempo fa, non si tratta della prima vera data della tournée, ma di uno show a scopo benefico, atto a raccogliere fondi per sostenere la lotta all’AIDS in Ucraina.

 

A questo proposito, la band ha rivelato che la scaletta prevede prevalentemente classici dei Queen e di Paul Rodgers, mentre le canzoni dal nuovo album saranno al massimo tre. Tuttavia, nel corso delle passate settimane, la band ha avuto modo di provare tutti i brani di The Cosmos Rocks, pertanto è lecito aspettarsi variazioni nella scaletta della tournée vera e propria, che inizierà il 15 settembre a Mosca.

Il concerto di questa sera fungerà anche da “special” per gli USA. Restando in tema di Stati Uniti, pare inoltre che la band non abbia per il momento intenzione di proseguire la tournée altrove (magari in Asia), mentre la data di Dubai pare non sia stata ancora confermata nei dettagli.

 

Questi i brani eseguiti durante la presentazione dell’album avvenuta il 3 settembre, a Londra:

 

01 Fat Bottomed Girls

02 Another One Bites The Dust

03 Hammer To Fall

04 I Want It All

05 I Want To Break Free

06 A Kind Of Magic

07 Shooting Star

08 Cosmos Rockin’

 

Infine, ecco qualche foto:

"Cosmos Rocks": i testi dei sei brani "mancanti"
Topic: Testi e traduzioni

Il 10 settembre si è tenuta a Milano la premiére italiana in cui gli iscritti al We Will Rock You Fan Club ed altri fortunati hanno potuto ascoltare il nuovo album in anteprima.

 

Fra le altre cose, sono stati distribuiti dei libretti con testi e traduzioni in italiano di tutte e 14 le tracce del disco.

 

Ecco quelli che mancavano:

"Time To Shine", "Still Burnin' ", "Voodoo", "Some Things That Glitter", "Through The Night"  e "Surf's Up...School's Down".


TIME TO SHINE

(Queen + Paul Rodgers)

 

With the sun in your eyes and the wind in your face
To heaven you rise in a holy embrace
Your feet on the round your head in the clouds
And you're wondering if you're never coming down

In an istant the mysteries of life will unfold
The myths and the dragons of time will explode
Here's to a real understanding of truth
For compassion and grace to be given their chance too

Raise up your mind
It's time to shine

A moment down through millennium
Unveiling the secrets of song to be sung
Waters of life flowing soft to the touch
Wisdom remembered have we forgotten oh so much

Raise up your mind
It's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Hey, it's time to shine

Let's awaken from barbarity
Into a world of serenity
Beyond the rage of foolish pride
And on to the golden shores of paradise

Raise up your mind
Hey, it's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Hey, it's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Your time to shine
It's time to shine
It's time to shine


 

STILL BURNIN’

(Queen + Paul Rodgers)

 

I can't wake in the mornin'
I can't sleep at night
I got a pain in my memory
That just won't sit right
You might say I’m losing my mind
What a shame, shame, shame
But I don't want and I don't need
To play the cryin' game

Music lights this flame in me
I won't let it go and it won't let me be
I'm just a happy slave and oh I can't leave it
'Cause I'm still, and I always will - be a believer

Still burnin' (yeah)
Still yearnin' (and the wheel's)
Still turnin' (ooh let me tell you why)
We're jivin' (and the beat's)
Still drivin' (and we are all)
Sky divin' (rock 'n' roll never die)

I can't breathe in the city
Got dust in my lungs
I get mad in the country
Everythin' seem to go wrong
You might think I'm playin' around
But my heart is true
I got reason to believe
That sweet soul magic
Gonna tear my heart in two

Music makes the world go round
I've been flyin' on the wings of the sound
It feels so good from way up here
I'm still a believer
Headin' for the stars

Oh yeah

Still burnin’, still yearnin’

 


Still burnin'
Still yearnin'
Still turnin' (better than every guy)
We're jivin'
Still drivin'
Sky divin' (rock 'n' roll never die)

Don't say that you love me I can't go that road
But don't think for a moment that my heart went cold
I keep thinkin' about what I lost
And what I might have found
I went to sleep and when I woke
Everything had turned around

Still burnin' (yeah)
Still yearnin'
Still turnin' (a new day dawnin')
We're jivin'
Still drivin'
Sky divin' (early in the morning)

Still burnin' (yeah)
Still yearnin' (and the wheel’s)
Still turnin' (better than every guy)
We're jivin' (and the beat's)
Still drivin' (and we're all)
Sky divin' (rock 'n' roll never die)


 

VOODOO

(Queen + Paul Rodgers)

When the moons rises
The dogs will howl
Look out of your window
I'll be on the prowl
I'm not usually
A gambling man
But oh I just wanna
Hold up my hands

And say I'm
Taking a chance on you love
Woah I'm taking a chance on you love

I'm not superstitious
And I don't wear no charm
I don't carry my heart on the sleeve of my arm
Seven years of bad luck
Please don't worry me
'Cause when I look in the mirror
Here's the future I see

I'm taking a chance on you love
Woah, I'm taking a chance on you love

Place your bets, Better yet
Don't forget, What I said
Roll the dice, Spin the wheel
Always remember, You've got to keep it real

Don't believe in voodoo
Black magic was never my style
But I believe you do
And it won't take much time
To gather the portions
That weave your magic spell
The moon on the ocean
Has a secret to tell

But anyway I'm
Taking a chance on you love
Woah I'm taking a chance on you love
Woah I'm taking a chance on you love


 

SOME THINGS THAT GLITTER

(Queen + Paul Rodgers)

 

Once I loved a butterfly
Don't wonder how, don't ask me why
But I believed what I'd been told
'All things that glitter can't be gold'

Ooooo ooo yeah
All things that glitter can't be gold

Those jealous minds conspired to say
Just let that creature fly away
How can it be she has it all
Her pride is headed for a fall

Ooooo ooo yeah
All things that glitter can't be gold

Oh Lord, what races we run
Seeking our place in the Sun
Reaching and doping we'll find the right one

Now every day a new joy brings
My butterfly grew golden wings
It seems we find as we grow old
Some things that glitter may be gold

Ooooo ooo yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold

So let us mind what's there to see
Before our hearts become too cold
In spite of all that we've been told
Some things that glitter may be gold

Ooooo ooo yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold

Ooooo ooo yeah
Some things that glitter

May be gold


 

THROUGH THE NIGHT

(Queen + Paul Rodgers)

 

Tell me something that'll ease my pain
I am living life in vain
Crying doesn't help me any more
Tell me something that'll ease my mind
I am walking the line
Trying doesn't get my anywhere

I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Searching for a guiding light
I wander through the night

Tell me something 'cause I need to know
Can you teach me how to live
How to understand how to love and how to give
Anger burns in bitterness and fills me up inside
I can't face it and there's no place I can hide

I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Searching for a guiding light
I wander through the night

Tell me something 'cause I need to know
Can you teach me how to live
How to understand how to love and how to give
Anger burns in bitterness and fills me up inside
Without your love there's nowhere I can hide

I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Earching for a guding light
I wander through the night


 

SURF’S UP...SCHOOL’S OUT

(Queen + Paul Rodgers)

 

Surf's up
School's out
I got a criminal urge to
Twist and shout

I've been searching
My whole life through
For some perfect dream
Imagined in my youth

Follow that dream
Surf's up - School's out
Surf's up - School's out

For a perfect life
Find a perfect girl
You gotta follow that dream
To a perfect world

I've been a searcher
An adventurer too
This ride still runs
I wanna ride with you

This ride still runs
Wanna ride with you

Follow that dream
Surf's up - School's out
Surf's up - School's out

In the town and the country
We all lay and dreamed our dreams
Then we found the world is tough
And all is not quite what it seems
Gotta take it by the horns
Gotta seize your precious day
Got to follow your dream

Follow that dream
Follow that dream

Follow that dream
Surf's up - School's out

Follow that dream
Surf's up - School's out
Surf's up

Follow that dream
Surf's up - School's out
Surf's up - School's out

Follow that dream
Follow that dream
