Bloody post strike - I haven't got my copy yet. Are the forms for the convention in with this issue?

I believe a tour will happen, hopefully they'll play the new Liverpool Arena too.

Cheers

Well THEY are in the studio working on a new album, THEY are discussing a tour following that, what more can I say, it will be Queen + Paul as is the album.

To be totally fair he doesn't say either RT+PR+BM or for that matter any combo of the three, but it has to be implied that he mean all of them as he starts the sentence off talking about being back in the studio with Paul.

I'm talking about doing some live dates, too. That doesn't mean it's actually gonna happen. Please be more specific.

Example:
Brian was sitting on the pooder dropping the kids off and said "Boy, I'd bloody like to tour after that one!".


I think it's pretty much a given that every artist wants to promote their new album with some live dates. Plus I didn't send in my $90/year for the three fan club mags this year, so maybe you can provide a little more info?

Excellent! We can continue watching a bunch of 60-year olds decomposing live on stage, playing their greatest hits and a few (most likely) average new songs with a fraction of the energy present in the old shows. Bravo!!!

Brilliant attitude from a fan... *rolls eyes*

I am actually excited. I'm not expecting the new album to be a new A Night At The Opera, but I'm pretty sure it'll be good enough to honor the status Brian and Roger have as Queen members. I liked the previous tour (except for the fact that they "skipped" my country), and I'm hoping they'll stop by Brazil next time. No matter how much the tickets would cost.

Sorry I was not present at the meeting, maybe you'd better send the cheque off to find out more!

Again, I am sure most have read this, but just in case for those that say Rodgers doesn't want to tour...read on...

RODGERS READY TO ROCK AHMET TRIBUTE, QUEEN CD
Paul Rodgers with Queen
07 November, 2007
Gary Graff, Detroit

Despite the excitement surrounding Led Zeppelin's reunion, Paul Rodgers is hoping that fans will remember the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert on Dec. 10 in London is indeed supposed to be about the late Atlantic Records co-founder.

"I do think that the purpose and the point of the show is to celebrate Ahmet Ertegun's life," says Rodgers, the former Bad Company/Free/the Firm/the Law frontman who's a late addition to a lineup that, besides Led Zep, includes Pete Townshend, Foreigner, Paolo Nutini and Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings.

Rodgers -- who met Ertegun when Bad Company signed to Led Zeppelin's Atlantic-distributed Swan Song Records in 1974 -- tells Billboard.com he plans to perform two songs, most likely an acoustic version of something from Bad Company's debut album and Free's enduring hit "All Right Now."

"Ahmet was that very rare example of an entrepreneurial record company chief who was brave enough and intelligent enough to ... follow what his heart told him, and it usually worked," Rodgers notes. "It's an honor to have been signed by the man who discovered people like Ray Charles, Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin, who were some of my heroes."

Rodgers says that he hopes Led Zep "can live up to the expectations, because they're huge. But God bless 'em and good luck to 'em." There are no plans for he and Zep guitarist Jimmy Page to reunite to play anything from their short-lived '80s band the Firm, though Rodgers notes, "it's not a bad idea, is it? We did make some great music."

Besides preparing for the Ertegun show, Rodgers has been in the studio with Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor working on an album of new material that should be out under the Queen + Paul Rodgers moniker next year. He says the three of them have been writing individually and "are working towards actually writing together as well."

Each of them are taking turns playing bass, and while Rodgers is inserting the blues and R&B influence that's so much a part of his style, he says May has been carefully orchestrating the "whole orchestra of harmonies" that are Queen's hallmark.

"With any band there's two sides -- there's the image and there's the music," says Rodgers. "I don't feel that I stepped into the image of Queen, although I wouldn't know that. But I really stepped into the music. It's safe to say we're quietly excited about what we're doing."

Rodgers says the group will wrap up its latest round of recording this week and take stock of what it has, then resume around the time he returns to England for the Ertegun concert. He expects a tour to follow the album's release.
