Live in Tokyo: Queeness -You Want It All?- Japan Tour 2017

I enjoyed the Queeness Live in Tokyo with my friend last Saturday.

If Freddie Mercury were still alive, he would be 71 years old. The original Queen was a British rock band that formed in London in 1970 and made a great success in England, the U.S., Japan and the rest of the world. But today many young people do not know the band. Some know them only by their songs.

This is why I introduce original Queen first.

The "Queeness" is the most famous tribute to the original group. Its leader Freddie Eto (Vocal) is one of my important friend. We worked together in the early 1990’s in the company where I am employed.

Queeness is introduced in the next video - Japanese TV variety show several years ago. In the video, Brian May (of original Queen) sent a letter to Queeness and said "Thank you very much for inheriting our music." - It means Queeness is acknowledged by the original Queen Rock Band. Apart from Freddie Eto's unique personality, Queeness' excellent sound and performance attracts huge audiences.

Live in Tokyo!: Queeness ”You Want It All?” Japan Tour 2017
Date: September 2nd (Sat), Open 17:00 Start 18:00
Place: Shinjuku ReNY (Island Hall)

Ryuichi Yamamura (Jazz musician) known as John Deacon is another friend of mine. I came to know him when I went to the "Jazz live played by Takako Inaba" on Feb 2006.

Another coincidence is that Yamamura was a junior fellow of Freddie Eto at the same high school. Until the concert I didn't know that Mr. Yamamura is a member of Queeness.


The friend I invited to the live concert was born after the Queen's prime. Her older brother introduced her to Queen and she has been a great fan ever since. She knows almost everything about Queen. I think she is the only person I can invite to the live. This is my 3rd time invitation.

The last live with her was on Sep 2014 "Queeness Freddie Mercury Birthday Festival @ Shibuya duo MUSIC EXCHANGE" (YouTube Mix List) and it was very hot and humid day. The first live was on May 2008 "Freddie Eto Live @ Yokohama" and this is his personal live.


We were worried about big typhoon No.15 and fortunately it changed direction to off-island of Japan. Weather recovered and we could receive soft sunlight and fresh air in the afternoon.




The music live house - Shinjuku ReNY is very big and its capacity is 800 audiences.

We had to stand during the entire concert. I didn’t mind because I train by walking every night. I also met two old friends in the Live house.


The time of my friend's arrival was unpredictable. She has a job in Ginza and came to the rendezvous 30 minutes before the hall open. No problem! We could talk about recent events and future plans until the live start.

Ten years have passed since we first met. Our long and fine friendship made us think about what had happened to each of us during the years we didn't have a chance to talk. There are many things to tell, but I could not recall all my memories. I will tell her next time.

The program started at 6pm and we enjoyed about 30 songs. It ended around 8:30pm. My friend knows all the songs and I know only half of them. She said after the previous live that "Roger's voice is almost same as the original singer.” This time she said "Not only his voice, but he also looks like Roger." .

She is a great cinema maven. She likes Queen's "Brighton Rock" which was used for the catastasis at the end of the movie "Baby Driver". She expects the song is in the
playlist which was not played in the 2014 program. She was glad the song started in the middle of the program.

Between the songs, Freddie Eto announced his dream to hold a Queeness live in the big and most famous Budokan Hall and he requested audiences in English. "I ask each of you here tonight to take 50 friends to the Budokan live! Then your ticket will be free!" He asked Brian for Japanese translation. "I don't want to translate pyramid style selling to the audiences." said Brian. But he finished the translation any way.


We were allowed to take photos and movies without flash. But we can only upload photos to internet. If you want to watch a Queen movie, search on YouTube.

CD's are available only in the live house. This is a collection of live musics of the Queeness Japan Tour.




I realized many parents and children attended this concert compared with the previous live in 2014. I am sure that the great Queen's music is passed on to next generation. The next videos are the of kids and elders reaction to Queen's music.
