8 Now Vegas - Phil Collen/Rick Allen Interview Quotes - (Transcribed by dltourhistory)

2013 VIVA! Hysteria

Phil - "We've done one before."

Rick - "2013. So after we did that one we knew that it would happen again. It was just a matter of when and just figuring out when we could do it logistically."

Seeing Other Residencies

Phil - "Our crew did. Production wise. Yeah like production manager, stage manager all of that stuff. We've been preparing for this for ages."

Playing With Brian May

Rick - "With somebody like Brian who we looked up to, we grew up listening to Brian and Queen. It's a massive compliment it really is. And he's a friend."

Phil - "Brian is a musical superhero. We're very aware of that and we're just so pleased and honoured to have him as a friend and to induct us."
