Hey Aussie fans!

Just wondering if you ever get annoyed that the media never mention anything about Queen, like the release of On Fire At The Bowl, or whatever. The only thing they ever write about is WWRY the musical and that's usually when it's about Ben Elton!

We Aussie Queen fans need to shove it up our media...!

I'm from America, my friend, and the situation here is basically the same (except they don't even mention Ben Elton!) Rap and hip-hop seem to dominate the airwaves, so a band with true talent and timeless songs doesn't warrant much of a mention. Keep the faith, though.

G'day mate, I'm from Perth. I hadn't heard a thing about Live at the Bowl. I only managed to pick it up because I happened to be wandering around K-Mart in the electronics section and spied the word 'Queen'. I was suprised, however, that I managed to pick up Live Aid so quickly.

Plus I pre-ordered Tommy. Can't wait for that!

Tommy is the movie The Who made based on the album. It has Jack Nicholson in it, The Who themselves and bucket load of other celebrities in it.

Yeah your right there's not much publicity for Queen here in Australia but you always here about WWRY the musical.

I found out about the new DVD in a JB HI FI catologue so i went out and bought it, and the lady at the counter told me they were selling like hotcakes, so it could be an indication that it might be the top of the music DVD charts in Australia when the charts come out on Monday.

If your interested in finding out go to www.aria.com.au.

Oh well, Australians don't seem to know too much about music... lol.

Hi Bomber_Dan,
I couldn't agree more how Queen are totally ignored here - the Fire DVD is No.1 in the UK charts!!!!
I got the DVD last week even tho I already had something similar off E-bay - Freddie is great isn't he??
I am from Melb and hope to go & see the Tribute band Queen Essential this Fri 19th. (I am 30+ by the way so a Queen fan from way back...)
I also saw a Queen DVD in the K-Mart catalogue called "Magic Moments", but when I went there they had none!!! What is going on...

Hi there Karen. Steer clear of Magic Moments. My I.Q dropped nine points.

As expected Jet is at the top of the DVD charts. Fair enough. I'm suprised Robbie Williams is still in the top 10 with 'Live at the Albert'.

About the 'classics' not touring The Eagles just played over here and it was quite a success. There are more bands/solo acts touring over east than over in W.A. That is a pain. I'm just glad Cold Chisel isn't touring any time soon.

Australians unite!

I heard that movie's horrible. I still want to see it though. But I don't want to waste my money on it.

Conundrum.

Nah, Magic Moments isn't that bad. Just some of those guys annoy the hell out of me.

Tommy has the Who in it..IT HAS to be good.
