First, happy new year to everyone.



So what can we realistically expect from Queen productions in 2009?



I know we can look forward to the Q+PR Ukraine live DVD (and CD) and
possibly one of the South American shows on DVD as well (though I can't
imagine it getting it's own release but perhaps as a double disc with
the Ukraine show or maybe "highlights" of it on a bonus disc.)



Beyond that, I have no clue. Assuming the first  volume sold well
enough, "The Singles Collection 2" will likely hit stores. I know most
of us couldn't give a crap about the first box but keep in mind "A
Human Body" will finally make it's CD debut with volume 2 so
that's.....something I guess.



It doesn't take a genius to safely say there won't be any anthology box
sets this year unless Q+PR officially call it quits and Brian/Roger
finally say Queen is finished. I'd also think "Video Hits 3" isn't
terribly likely either but if there's nothing Q+PR related on the books
for the '09 holiday season, it might happen. However it'd be more
likely they'd release a re-vamped "Greatest Hits III" CD (dropping
Wyclef and some solo tracks in favor of the two Q+PR singles. Don't
laugh, I'll bet the thought has crossed Jim Beach's mind!)



Freddie's solo material has been effectively milked by now so we can
forget that unless some deal is made with Michael Jackson  has been
made and we see an official release of the tracks Freddie recorded with
him. However a sex tape of Jackson with a women being leaked onto the
internet would be more believeable at this point.



No "new" solo material from Brian or Roger of course but their catalog has yet to be mined so who knows?

Not that it's wanted at the expense of other stuff, but the Budapest show on DVD will be out at some point, maybe as early as 2009?

I think they will release a new DVD - Live in Canada or something (they are running out of titles for that concert I suppose).

Well, here are a few examples:

Milking The Cash Cow in Canada (love alliterations)
Rocking Montreal...Again!
Queen vs. Financial Crisis in Montreal.

Of course, all three releases will be single discs in a cheap FLEXBOX package. Artwork will be done by Richard a.k.a. "Magic Hands" Gray.

Ah yes, can't wait.

I heard they will release a best of GH cd too. Or you can just buy all the 3 in a brand new boxset. And TCR will be re-released with the cover art in a stereo picture, so you'll have to buy 2 albums to get the effect.

We'll get the Singles Boxset Vol. 2 but 'A Human Body' won't be released along with the set because QPL will decide to include the 'Play The Game' indonesian single version featuring 'Killer Queen' as the b-side.

Greg Brooks will come here and accuse us of being ungrateful moaners because despite we won't get AHB, we got benefitted by getting a lovely unavailable cover art for the single instead.

What about the Magic Years being released on DVD with a bonus DVD of post 86 stuff?

Personally, I would like to see Freddie's 'She Blows Hot and Cold' released too, love that track!

I'm hoping for the following;

1 : a QPR dvd from the 08 tour. Ukraine with a bonus disc from south america

2: GVH III on dvd

I think it's unlikely that we will get more than two releases

They were originally scheduled somewhere in the '90s, weren't they? I suppose they might be out by 2109, so I'll just have to make sure I get healthy, long-living grandchildren.
