I for one hope that  is is not the end. Too many fans will be disappointed.

I do think there will be more of a chance of shows in the U.S than Canada.

Although Hollywood Records confirmed that as of late last year, a U.S. Tour was planned. There are no definite plans for touring as of yet for '09. But according to Galileo (the admin on the QueenOnline forum, who's an employee of QP), something is in the pipeline for Queen & Paul Rodgers this year...but it's under wraps at the moment.

I'm sorry, I meant that a U.S. tour was in the planning stages...it wasn't a go...just an idea.

I'm sure if they come to the US, there will be Canadian dates, as well.

The other day Brian May and Roger Taylor launched the WWRY (musical) tour in Manchester. They were asked if they would do more work with Paul Rodgers. Brian said "We don't know", Roger said "I hope so". I did not find this interview on the net myself but it was quoted by the leader of the Austrian FC who is very reliable.

If they do not know right now  if there is ANY further collaboration with Paul Rodgers, it's safe to say that the chances for any touring this year are pretty small.

Well actually what they said was in response to a question about the big hits, they were discussing playing them live and Brian said "do we still play them" to Roger, who said, "dunno, not sure"

They were not talking about working with Paul. It was both interesting and a little sad at the same time, left me with the impression they were uncertain about what the future holds but nothing had been decided either way.

It would be good to see them in the U.S. or at least in South America again(yeah), for countries like Mexico, Colombia or  Perú, who have waited so much to see them. In that way, they can get lots of plubicity by doing that (the 2nd conquest of S.A).

Cheers

Togg, can you post a link to that interview? I followed the link Jen posted on Brianmay.com (some local news website) but I did not get any sound.

Gosh, I did not realise that.

Hmm, the sound was there a couple of days ago, this link I took from QOL site.
Anyway, from memory they are talking about playing the big hits rather than specifically playing with Paul.
The rest is pretty well all about the WWRY show, apart from a bit when they talk about songs they liked and didn't like playing...however naturally they will not be drawn on what they didn't like!!!  but you are left in no doubt there are a few!
