it should not be just rumours, because the presenter himself confirmed Brian+Roger's presence! (Paul Rodgers not included)

for the people that don't know what is it about, it's the famous Music Festival at the end of February.
Queen were there with Freddie in 1984 to promote Radio Gaga.
and consider that there's a huge live orchestra at the Music festival ;) plenty of musicians...

in such case, they would have toured as Queen, not Queen+Paul Rodgers; and so The Cosmos Rocks album would be by Queen, not QPR.

I think the brand "Queen" actually comprises Brian and Roger, not Paul.

That said, I wish everything they do in the future includes Paul, as I like QPR and hope to see more from them

ET here in the States ran a segment a few months ago about Queen and their upcoming "The Cosmos Rocks" album.  They never mentioned Queen + Paul Rodgers, they just mentioned Queen.

So the legendary Paul Rodgers doesn't even get billing anymore?

He's gone.

Wow.

You know if it's not a mere oversight, then there's more to it than your simple surmising.

There would be a contractual agreement as to billing.  If Paul Rodgers is to appear, he would get billing.

AFAIK, in this particular instance it was clearly stated that Paul would not be there.

However, the agreement has not been signed yet; so, despite the announcements in the media in the last three days, their presence still remains UNconfirmed.

I'm sure it is.  I don't watch the show myself, I was channel surfing when I noticed the segment. 

I don't need to know what Britney, Paris and Lindsey are doing.  Who the phuck cares.

Freddie performing is much more likely than an appearance by John.

Official announcement from the Italian Queen Fan Club: Queen will NOT appear at the Sanremo festival next month.

Despite all the schedule-juggling efforts, it eventually proved NOT possible to make a live performance happen at
such short notice (miming was out of the question right from the start).

Reasons given: contacts were only taken earlier this month, with BHM and RMT already busy preparing the WWRY touring production, Spike due to spend a few weeks in the USA, Paul to attend business in Canada for some time, and several tech crew key members on well-deserved leave.

HTH

Here in Brazil, many headlines simply mentioned Queen was coming. The explanation about Paul Rodgers always came somewhere in the middle of the report. But some reports didn't actually mention the importance of adding "+ Paul Rodgers" to the band's name, they simply said Queen would play at Via Funchal and HSBC Arena in November'08 with Paul as the lead singer (not explaining that he isn't part of Queen).

(I posted this just to complement what some people wrote about the press considering PR as part of "Queen").
