Seeing as I expect to be at the Queen Breakthru fan convention in Atlanta, GA this July, including playing for the tribute band "Innuendo" on opening day, I figured I should find out who's coming to the convention as well, as I hope to meet several of you guys there :-)

Anyone else coming along as well? I'm 100% confirmed for the convention, currently also prepping for the "Innuendo" tribute band set I'll be playing for (as guitarist) on opening night. Really would like to meet as many Queenzoners as possible :-)

It's just a few days out now ... does anyone have any additional information?  What time it starts Friday and what time it finishes Sunday?  I've not received any info yet since registering and the website looks mostly the same.

By the way I'm wondering if Innuendo performs "Death on Two Legs"?  What song are you looking forward to playing the most?  Anyhow, whether you play DO2L or not looking forward to hearing Innuendo.  It must be an incredible feeling to be able to play a musical instrument and play songs from Queen's catalog.  Good luck, I'm sure the crowd will be psyched.

And for our Irish friends (above) who can't be there - a Guinness will be raised.

There must be!  Angeline is irish, but doesn't live here, and I haven't seen her post in ages.

No, we won't be playing DOTL. If I told you what I look most forward to playing, that'd be giving the setlist away my dear ;-)
Just wait and see :-)

Cheers!

So I just wanted to write and say that I am just having an absolute BLAST at Breakthru here in Atlanta!
Always nice to see Peter Freestone, and also equally nice to meet and chat with Gary Taylor and Jacky Smith. Gary is definitely one you can have long conversations with easily!
Also met up with our fellow Queenzoners Erin, Pieter, Iron Eagle (who so very kindly lent me his Red Special for the concert tomorrow when mine developed a couple serious problems on the way here! Extremely grateful towards Iron for that :-) plus Gregsynth and Jamster1111

Looking forward towards playing our live show tomorrow night, or at least amuse people trying to do so! ;-)
