I am a Queen fan and have been for years. I have a framed collection of every Queen album on my wall (thanks Mum). The day after I turned eighteen I went to the Transport Department and got my 18+ card so I could see a Queen cover band playing at the Reef Hotel that same night. It was the first live band I had ever seen and while it was just a small pub venue I really enjoyed hearing some of my favourite songs played live and played well. The band called themselves Killer Queen and I watched them for a second time tonight - almost fifteen years later and they are still awesome.
The fireworks were pretty good too.
Oh yeah, and Queen are releasing a new album!
