The Sonisphere lineup is announced at the same time. Co-incidence? An alledged leak of the Sonisphere poster:-

They announced the announcement on Facebook...

The old geezers on tour would not be BIG NEWS at all for me..

..John Deacon joining them for a couple of small venues.. THAT would be big news!

They're going to be confirmed as Sonisphere headliner's that's for sure. Possibly more?

Could it be John Deacon coming out of retirement to play at the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony with BM and RT ?

No doubt will be gigs possibly with Adam Lambert. I think we would all rather see Paul Rodgers but such is life, must have been a real rift with Paul as he did mention he would be up for a gig with Queen. Wonder when they'll announce when they are going to re-release the live albums hopefully with much anticipated extras. Many would kill to have perfect versions of 70's concerts.

Wouldn't it be more effective to burn Bri and Rog's gear instead?

Of late, it seems that all you'd need to do to force Roger and Brian into retirement is set up a fish & chips shop in Roger's back yard, and send Brian pictures of hot young (female) singers who could use a career-boost.

an utter joke if they go out with a karaoke singer

I won't burn my Queen collection - but my respect for brian and roger will take a HUGE dive. on paper, that seems trivial - but these guys have been heroes to me for 20 years.
at one point, about 10 years ago, they lost the plot with five, pepsi etc. but the QPR years were a great way to do it, once they decided to do it

but working with a television karaoke singer? have they put him on hold for 3 yrs hoping people would forget where he came from?
what about the fact that they are going out with YET another singer after Freddie?

it's a JOKE

Kerry Ellis is NOT hot. Weird Face-Forehead ratio.

A tour of some sorts looks probable...

I'd not be shocked to see Queen doing a combo of solo shows as well as shows as openers for Guns N Roses (well Axl Rose and co!) in late May like Brian did back in the early 90s. A couple of festivals also seem probable.

Pretty much 99% certain this will be for Sonisphere. Would be a very big coincidence if it wasn't. Personally I think it would be great to see them back at Knebworth.

Peter, tiež ma to napadlo, ale ... naco, za to, že May s Taylorom sú dvaja vyjebaní kokoti Freddie a John nemôžu ... a Freddie s Johnom sú viac než integrálnou súcastou znacky Queen ...

Vedno si zakricme: "Brian a Roger, špiníte meno Queen a skoncite za to v pekle ...!" :D
Nic viac s tým nenarobíme. Ešteže sa toho ON nedožil ... My fanúšikovia JEHO éry si to jednoducho vyžerieme ... Proti ludskej blbosti bojovat je vopred prehraný boj!

Ale môžbyt sa to nestane. Ale u mna sú Roger s Brianom KOKOTI aj tak ... :-(

I think it might be a commemorative edition of the GH albums. All packed up in a fancy new crown-shaped box. With no extras, of course.

Like others on here I will be disgusted if it is with Lambert, hoping its with Paul Rodgers. If they play with Lambert they will commit suicide, hes a bender but he aint Freddie and not even a good singer. Why shouldnt it be with PR, did Brian and Paul fall out, Paul always was going to be the singer on a temporary basis as he had his own solo career but never said he wouldnt mind working again. Lambert is the very C LEBRITY that they sang about and will get murdered by the metal, hard rock fans at Sonsisphere.

I have a bad feeling it will be Sonisphere. But if we get lucky maybe there will be more such as the release of Hammersmith 1975!
