Ok who here gets the feeling that this partnership is going to be over very soon? I mean it was a great run, and I was lucky enough to see them 6 times but I think the partnership has run it's course. They did 2 tours, a live record and a new studio album, where else can they possible take it. It's a shame I love Paul Rodgers but I really think he hinders Queen's back catalog and song selection. On the other hand I do see Paul Rodgers getting the short hand of the stick as well with them playing only one or two of his songs per show. I just think both side have realized that the partnership has run it's course. You might see a few more big gigs being booked but I would'nt expect anything more from Queen + Paul Rodgers.

I have to disagree. I think they can go on as long as they feel the music is working, and going by The Cosmos Rocks album, I think they have a lot more to offer. If any other recordings are as good as that album then bring it on.
They might take a break, and that could be for a while, but I get the impression that they would want to work together again. They seem very happy on stage and in interviews, considering the gruelling nature of this tour.
I really hope so anyway. I think Paul is the best thing since, well, Freddie Mercury.

What you expected?20 Paul songs per show?it´s not a Bad Company tour it´s QUEEN +.
The show in Velez was excellent but the people clearly got bored during Paul songs especially Seagull take into acccount that MANY people are MAINLY going to the concerts to listen and watching Brian and Roger.

No, no and no. That's just talking without knowing nothing at all. We just don't know what will happen.
Anyway, I hope they will go on. QUEEN + Paul Rodgers rock!
(Be positive!)

They have the right to continue blah blah blah but it's time to go to bed. From the bored faces of them all in an interview today for the brazilian Terra portal (link won't work outside Brazil or I'd post it), they seem to be or very bored or about to kill each other.

Or they are bored of answering the questions, 'What would Freddie have made of this?' and 'Where is John Deacon?'

They couldn't be that naive not to expect those questions.  They've only invited them even more so by carrying on the name "Queen"

"Freddie is still with us" (actual quote of Brian in this interview)

NO HE'S NOT.

Paul has to be getting tired of being an unappreciated, 2nd fiddle, red-headed stepchild.

I highly doubt this will be it, they have done a huge tour which has done well and pulled in millions, the album has sold OK, not great but certainly up there with many of Queens previous outings, hot space, jazz etc

However, the main reason is that they all still like working and will want to continue until the desire to perform stops dragging them back

At 60 they will all realise this is coming to and end soon, and I highly doubt they will stop now, I will bet the ranch that in a couple of years we will be hearing new material and seeing another tour.

Amen to that...

A lot of the naysayers on this board talk about a bad feeling between the band on stage and off...sorry but that is pure nonesense... You should have seen them in the Freddie days... talk about fighting with eachother, this is a walk in the park compared to that. Freddie would have actual fights with band members, they would scream and shout at eachother, Brian and Roger were constantly fighting

These days all that has gone, Roger and Brian are best friends, Paul gets on well with both of them and from what I hear he has really enjoyed this tour and partnership.

There were times back in the day when you would turn up at a gig and be thinking will Freddie even show up on stage'

My feeling is they will break for a while but keep plans open to do more in a year or so.

There will NEVER be any new solo material from Brian or Roger, because it won't be commercially profitable, so no record company will publish and support it.

Just look at what half-hearted microscopic support TCR has gotten, despite the Queen name on it!!!

Paul is the only one with a continuing solo career.

There has actually been an extremely rough time among them, but they eventually got past it, and they all now seem to be getting along pretty well.

If that will result in more new music, and when, is still to be seen...

Sorry, but that is pure speculation... what evidence have you got other than folk on here saying so based on the fact Paul hasn't signed there album or Brian walk past without smiling.

Unless you have been backstage with the Band and witnessed an argument or they have discussed it in an interview it is nothing but spectulation.

I can't possibly have witnessed an argument because, as always, they still carefully keep all their arguments behind closed doors.

Rumours.

Indeed I too would like to hear any evidence you have for these bust ups beyond 'I heard this rumour from some guy somewhere'. Do you have any details?
