United States


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

US, but I would venture to guess that many Queen fans are still "in the closet", so to speak.

UK, most definitely. The home of the boys and the fan club...and the musical, which I hope does well in the US come September.
There are plenty of US fans. They tend to come out of the woodwork for the annual conventions...

Yea. U.K. Only good reason to live here. Not a day goes by without me seeing at least one Queen vid on a music channel.

The US would have to have more, if for no other reason, the population. Now, if you take it as a percent, the UK would have more, by far. But, as far as sheer numbers of people, the US, in my mind anyhow, would have more.

Let's say Europe as a whole then! Queen played more times overseas than in the US. I'm grateful for the 13 times I saw them, though I envy the lot that enjoyed them at Wembley and Knebworth!
The closest I've been to a crowd that size was seeing the Stones in Memphis, TN (Mid-South Coliseum) in 1976.

Does anyone really know the answer, i doubt it, just think of all the millions of fans the guys had in South America and Asia.

Anywhere you go in the world there is at least one thing related to Queen.

Of 67 people involved in the bootleg tree (myself included), 18 are from the UK, 13 are from the USA, and 8 are from the Netherlands ...

Or in terms of continents: 18 in North and South America, 42 in Europe, and 7 in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Hmm. USA (of which I am one) are definitely in the closet (shame!) --- so maybe it's more obvious in Europe. It would make sense.

I think the US has the most fans, because there are more people living in the states than in the UK. But when it comes to %, the UK wins

I would say the UK,because their albums have usually been more successful on the charts than in the US. *Thinking of moving to the UK*

This is just in:

USA counts officially 4,332,604 Queen fans.
UK has "only" 3,806,214 Queen fans.

Really, it's true......


On a more serious note: Come on people, you can go on discussing for ages, you will never ever be able to get the right answer.

And by the way, I think India has quiet a lot "fans" as well. China doesn't, Queen is illegal over there.

I think it`s almost sure about that - US by number, UK by percentage, though Japan or the Netherlands would be close.

US has more than 300 million people. If only two percent of them were Queen fans that`d be already more than 100% of New Zealand

India too would be an option. With 1% only they`d already have over ten million fans. Which is way more than in most South American countries

No one in the southern United States will admit they listen to Queen. Down here, people are all right-wing extremists - they don't care if you're talented, they just care if you're a fag. Up in the more enlightened parts of the country it may be different.

Seems to me like in the south a band that carries a racist symbol like Lynard Skynard gets far more respect than a band that has way much more talent, and has achieved way far more, but has a homosexual lead singer.
