QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS ADD SOUTH AMERICA DATES
TO CURRENT COSMOS ROCKS TOUR.
CONCERTS SCHEDULED FOR CHILE, ARGENTINA, BRAZIL IN NOVEMBER

Following months of speculation which has created frenzied activity on internet forums and social networking sites, Queen and Paul Rodgers have now officially confirmed that they are extending their present eight week UK and European tour to include a number of concerts in South America.

Marking Queen’s first return to Latin America since the band’s historic dates in the early 80’s, most famously headlining Rock in Rio in January 1985, Queen + Paul Rodgers will take the current ‘Cosmos Rocks’ show to Chile, Argentina and Brazil after completing the current tour in the UK at Wembley Arena on November 8.

The South American dates will begin in the Chilean capital Santiago with a concert at the 20,000 seater San Carlos de Apoquindo stadium on November 19. Tickets go on sale October 2.

The band then head into Argentina and a return date almost seventeen years later to Buenos Aires’ Velez Sarsfield stadium where the band’s legendary concert in March 1981 included an onstage appearance by footballer Diego Maradona. The concert takes place November 21. Box office is now open.

Two concerts follow in Brazil’s largest city, Sao Paulo, at the famed Via Funchal outdoor arena on November 26 and 27. Tickets for these concerts will go on sale October 4. The setting for some of Queen’s biggest ever concerts, it is likely further dates will be added in Brazil.

Via Funchal is NOT an outdoor arena and it will probably not be enough for Queen. It's a SMALL venue for about 4.500 ppl. They had to play in Morumbi stadium or Palestra Italia stadium.

This has got to be a joke. They play a stadium in Argentina and Via Funchal in Brazil? Promoters are getting crazy nowadays.

Does this article refer to 1981 as 17 years ago?

It's a lot longer than that!

We´re all thinking the same... that venue is tooo small for Queen, the cover bands play there!!...

1 show at the Morumbi could be sold out.




Queen rocks!

I doubt Morumbi Stadium would be suitable - but fuck, Via Funchal? Even my father - who thinks Queen wouldn't have potential to sell out Palestra Italia! - thought it was a pathetic choice. Tickets are gonna cost a fortune and they'll sell out within minutes. Too many fans will be left out.

I seriously hope they manage to set new dates. The promoters in Brazil must be the most stupid ones in the world, really.
