Seems that queenonline.com is down ("Sorry the site is currently unavailable, please check back soon.") with a copyright-mention. Could there be a problem or does anyone think they're preparing for a big announcement (a la Apple-store?)?

- and they just added an image too

Maybe the site was taken down for some general maintenance, who knows?

We'll certainly see when its back up...

Perhaps they're finally adding the media section?  The website was never really complete in the first place.

England and Europe usually get their arses handed to them from socialists, communists, and dictators so I imagine Queen Productions got booted from bending over and grabing their ankles.    Maybe Brian May found that cult of personality he was looking for to worship like Barak Obama he said he wished that they also had.

I agree with Steven.  Adding the media section seems like the most probable reason why its down.

I just checked cos often sites are just down for maintanance, or the server is crashed or something, but its still down.  And definately not a server issue, cos of the picture. 
Strange.  Hope its something exciting!

perhaps they're relaunching the site:

QueenOnline.com    ..."the new special Deluxe Issue relaunch"
"same old shit....but some of the photos have been cleaned up...with some "extra site content" that we've all seen before"

Maybe someone has passed?  Ignore me, I always think the worst.

It's the 25th Anniversary of the last concert with Freddie today (Knebworth)?  Seems a little strange they'd take down the site today of all days ...

If they were just having problems with the website, I doubt a company like Outside Line (of whatever it is called) couldn't come up with a back-up or simplified site within a couple of hours. As said before: the server does seem to be reachable (hence the message) so...
