Wow, I do hope this is true. I would pay serious money to be there, if I could. I love Sydney and I happen to like Queen a bit :)

Will sydney's bum be able to handle it?

Sounds like it may be a full show from reading it...

'The band will play the concert with a revolving roster of various frontmen including George Michael.

George Michael, who apparently has a place in Sydney, has performed with the rock legends before and if the above vision is anything to go by then the December 31 show should be a cracker!

Nui said the show will be confirmed in the next few weeks.

He also revealed that pop act Black Eyed Peas could be part of the huge concert.'

Shit, only wish I could be there...

Let's get excited about it anyway!

Which TV channel will be broadcasting it live in Ireland and which pubs in Limerick will be showing it?!!

Already been debunked at the official Queen forums by the admin.

I'm almost hoping it's true - whilst I want it in the UK so I can go, I have a gig with my band on New Years Eve which the rest of my band will be very unhappy about me cancelling!

I'm not saying it is true, but they would deny it until the official announcement is ready to be made.

As is always the case, there is probably some truth within the rumour, for example, they may be playing NYE but just not in Sydney, or they may be playing in Sydney but just not on NYE, they may be playing with George Michael but not in Sydney and not on NYE etc.....

I hope it's bull.  I've already been to Sydney once this year and frankly, they owe me one.

Sydney????
I'll be VERY disappointed and annolyed as hell if this turns out to be the rumoured 40th Anniversary concert.
It's great for all you Aussies, but being an English band I'd expect them to hold it in England somewhere and Sydneys is WAY out of the question for me.

Guild93 (I know who you are!!). If it turns out to be true, then I expect you to go buy an HD Camcorder.... ;-)

You've more chance of the Queen being there than Brian and Roger.

However,as always,i hope i'm wrong.

I'm Canadian, so in the end wherever they play won't affect me. Put personally, I think they should play in the UK!

Rumoured New Years Eve gig in Sydney is rubbish...

An item in the press in Australia has rumoured that Queen will play Sydney Harbour New Years Eve... sadly, it's all complete rubbish! I would have been booking my tickets otherwise!

Australia? Isn't that the rabbit-infested ABBA-loving village that thinks of Queen as "stuck up pommies"? If anything, they'll send Paul Rodgers as a solo act....

Can someone post the rumoured set list so I can complain about it? Thanks.
