I really hope they come back to America! I didn't know about them until they were in Europe. I'd give almost anything to see them live!



Anyone know if they're coming back?

What do we have now, 87 threads on this?

Nothing is confirmed either way, but it's not looking likely. Smart money is that Q+PR is, unfortunately, a thing of the past.

Can you please provide a list of all 87 links please?

As for the second statement - because people want to see/hear Queen and Paul Rodgers? As for your third comment we also have lots of threads/comments from people jumping to their own conclusions who would just love this to be the case - but why? You have no evidence to back any of this up. I'd love to see them again but more so would love them to continue recording new material.  Haven't you read recent comments from Brian on his website?  I think the guys have earned a well earned rest after the recent tour and recordings over the last year or so.  I hope for our US Queenzoners that they do go on tour in 09.

Would be interested in having some idea of the source of the above comment just out of interest?

Sarcasm is like a good, sharp vodka. Either it's your thing, or it's not.

I'm one of the US Queenzoners you describe, and I would love to see Q+PR again, but you don't need quotes from Brian, Paul, and Roger to see the writing on the wall. The setlist got stale and the changes stopped happening. Paul seemed lethargic and bored onstage at times, and the posts I've seen here relating to his demeanor toward fans seemed to again project the image that he was tired of the whole project. The album flopped, especially in America, and considering that they couldn't even sell out arenas for a "Greatest Hits" tour in 2006, why would they possibly think that they could sell out arenas in support of an album that tanked?

The guys may decide to remain together as a band and keep making music, maybe even tour Europe again, or decide to head back to Japan. But a US tour looks about as likely as a Pink Floyd reunion--complete with Syd Barrett and Rick Wright.

They just announced the tour is on.

Gene Simmons will be playing bass in his Kiss makeup, replacing Danny Miranda.  No other members of KISS will be joining the tour and no KISS songs will be played.

Knowing Simmons' ego, the billing will be:

GENE SIMMONS + Queen + paul rodgers

Apologies for the sarcasm no offense intended - I just feel we need to try to be positive and not create a self fore filling prophecy.  After seeing Paul with Queen on the recent tour I wouldn't describe the performances as lethargic -they delivered what a wide range of fans wanted and would expect. Maybe they need to more closely consider which venues to pick for a US tour but they would be better prepared after the last one.

I suppose we can all keep speculating for the next few months - we'll just all have to wait and see.

Wouldnt it make sense to go out in the summer and do the ampitheatres?  Just an idea?

Not a very good one sadly if those ampitheatres are going to be half empty.

how do you know that ken if your in Australia?   If journey can sell out a load of ampitheatres with a new singer, why cant QPR do the same.  The promotion for a summer tour would be a lot easier as people like to go out side for the shows than a winter/spring tour.

You're assuming that they'll bother to promote the tour in the first place...

well in situations like ampitheatres, they do a great job(that is the venue) of promoting the line up of shows for the season.  Bethel Woods for example, where Woodstock  was held is a new venue, and they promote the lineup of shows they have in various places, so you know who is coming.  Seeing Journey draw 15,000 people there made me scratch my head.  I think the ampitheatre idea is the way to go for the summer.  I hope they are convinced to tour here.

I'd be surprised if they didn't come back, at all.  Summer, Fall.....I don't care when it is or even where it is in the US.  I'll go anywhere to see them.

Well if the amphitheatres are empty, that will be a good opportunity for the guys to break out 'Jazz Odyssey'.
