I was at the concert when they came to Japan for first time at Budokan.

Feels like just yesterday.

I saw and loved Queen Extravaganza in Vancouver, and now that I am living in Japan I hope some iteration of the Queen experience can visit us here!

Thanks for doing this type of survey, it shows that good music never goes into oblivion, Queen psyche enthrall crowds despite the weather ... I love Queen and although I am Japanese I really like the song Queen Teo terriote for me is a very good song, I hope someday Queen kick in dvd format historic 1979 concert in Budokan, Toyki 1982 or Queen live 1985 in Japan Yoyogi National Stadium, soloamente not for the Asian continent but throughout the world are from the Republic of Guatemala, and I would love to have one of those historic concerts on dvd for my library, I hope if this request can hacerllegar who correspnda , and always thank them for doing these surveys demuesta that Queen is not passé but current psyche forever.


OH freddie super bella




I have not ever seen this picture before.
Very cute!
I asked my mother.
"Do you know this garden?
It must be Kyoto."
She told me
"This is Heian Jingu Shrine in Kyoto."
That's the one of traditoional Japan.


really happy... I'm not the only one loving this group. My elder brothers ( japanesse ) do too ( ha.. ha..)


I'm so happy for the result of the survey! Cheers! Love Queen forever! !!


Queen reign supreme, as it should be!

Well deserved! Queen will always be in a class of their own. Freddy Mercury was a very talented and gifted musician and is still sorely missed today.




Now THAT is a picture of QUEEN...ROCK 'N' FKN ROLL ROYALTY
