I can understand the trip to Russia, and the return to Latin America...but what about the States? Not a word has been said about that. Fucking Jim Beach and Hollywood Records better step up and get Queen the right amount of promotional work done here in the U.S.

Ah, yes, another cheap-ass greatest hits-album. Just what we need!

Hahaha....well I was thinking more along the lines of interviews, public appearances, and advertising in magazines. I agree the compilation albums were old; last year!

I fully anticipate a spring '09 North American tour.

"Hollywood Records will release the new album in North America, with a date to be announced. Additionally, tour dates for the United States and Canada are still in the works, according to a label spokesperson."

I wrote the following on two other post.

"Paul Rodgers did a radio interview with a radio station here in Houston a few weeks ago. He mentioned that tour dates for a "World Tour" would be released in the middle of March. It's obvious other tour dates have not been finalized. So we're just going to have to be a little patient. I'm pretty sure they want to be with their families for the holidays. So, if the do come across the pond, it might be next year. Also, I know they're going to be touring South America, so they might add a few shows here in the States before or after they visit South America. We're just going to have to play the waiting game. "

US ignored queen along the 80`s and 90`s
USA doesnt deserve a queen tour again, after the few "sold out" concerts in 05/06

there are a lot of countries (argentina and brasil, for example) who were waiting the band since the 80`s, and they never ignored queen

its time for other countries to enjoy the queen music
we already have enough indifference from usa to queen

The US ignored Queen + Paul Rodgers due to poor promotions. My friends in Florida and Georgia didn't even know they were going to be in town until the day of the concert. And, Queen are not the only rock bands that can't sellout arenas. KISS and Aerosmith have had problems selling out venues in the past five years.

I think you will find that it was Queen who gave up on the USA, especially Freddie.

and KISS are huge in America compared to Queen. Ticket prices are a HUGE reason for this problem.

I think you will find that Freddie did not want to tour the USA again until he felt they had the right album. Who gave up on whom ???

Yes, who did give up on the USA. Um...Freddie or the USA...think they'd have come back around 92 with the popularity of Bo Rhap. Well who knows, anything could have happened if freddie wasn't ill, they might have even split up

I'm sure we all remember that back in 2005, QPR announced their US tour at the same time as the Eurpoean tour.

Oh, wait a minute

Agree. Queen still is very popular in dozens of countries there they have never performed. Lack of shows in the States is weak vicious flimsy overstrained argument. If QPR shows won't happen in Moscow - I won't burn my Queen collection in that case and it won't kill their popularity over here.
