Hey... If anyone knows offhand of important Queen dates in 1990/1991 (circa Innuendo is what I am going for), I need a list. I so far thought of the Brit Awards, the obvious of course (:()... I'm trying to think of some more...

Innuendo, the album, was released February 4, 1991 and it was recorded from March of 1989 to November of 1990.

Innuendo, the song, was released on January 14, 1991 in Europe and reached number one in the charts. Among other singles These Are The Days Of Our Lives was released in December of 1991 following Freddie Mercury's unfortunate death as a double A-side with Bohemian Rhapsody. This single was the United Kingdom's christmas number one of 1991.

On October 28, 1991 Queen released Greatest Hits II.

On March 10, 1991 Queen released Classic Queen.


Freddie Mercury requested Queen's manager Jim Beach over to his Kensington home on November 22, 1991 to talk about making a public statement regarding his terrible condition. The following day, November 23, the following announcement was released to the press.

"Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue."


Freddie Mercury died the following day, November 24, 1991.

Are you sure about that? I'm pretty sure Classic Queen was released after Wayne's World had made its impact and turned Queen fashionable again in the States. 1992, perhaps??

Alright, so I may have been wrong. The starter of this thread did say "offhand," so I gave him "offhand" information. However, I'm quite confident that the rest of the information is valid as it wasn't too long ago that I became aware of it.
