How much would you all be willing to bet the band won't come near the US? I don't think it's fair that they toss all of their US fans aside...I mean, they don't even have to stage a large scale tour...Just a major city tour thats close enough so most people can at least travel a practical distance. My only hope is that because Bad Company and Free, to a certain extent, were pretty big here in the US that Paul Rodgers will talk some sense into the others. I know most American fans will agree with me while the European fans will make comments like " Deal with it." But It's alot easier to say that when you can't wait to get your tickets in four months. As I saw one poster say " If they don't come here ( the US ), then I will burn my queen items for good". I'm with you.

Awww diddums.

The US (generally) were very quick to ignore Queen, so screw them. Australia should consider themselves lucky to have had shows in 85, after the treatment they got in 74. Ireland should be excluded for being a country so obsessed with the "troubles" that God Save The Queen can't be played (despite being ok in every other country in the world). Holland & Italy should be excluded for failing to prevent bootlegs being so widely available, and Germany should be discounted for having such pedantic judges.

And the French smell....

I don't see them coming to the US...for promoting the musical and gathering CD and DVD awards, yes, but touring? Naah! They're "busy" people, you know.

People complaining because they won't play where they live? I'm talking about America...the 4th biggest country in the world...you act like I'm pissed because I live in West Bublefuck Michigan and they won't come here...No. I'm pissed because they probably won't play anywhere in America. And as for them being old...thats part of them being musicians...regardless of how old they are...It has nothing to do with them being old. It has to do with them not giving a shit about their American fans. Its about them being pissed because some toothless rednecks didn't give a shit about them back '83. It's a different time now. Freddie's death along with "Waynes World" and the recent use of many of Queen's songs in commercials has brought Queen to the forefront of more peoples minds than ever before in this country.

Hey, Mr. Mad Guy et al., did you not notice that the "toothless rednecks" have basically taken over the country? There's plenty of reasons for bands not to play here, including the intermittent musician shootings. Not to mention the declining economy. Don't take it so personally.

That's like saying that they shouldn't play England
because of their intermittent world wars.

You're forgetting all the rap shootings. Tupac etc.
Thug life is America.

Thug life? You're right though...Brian May rolling down the strip in his Escalade. Lil Jon and the east side boyz roll up next to him...and shoot him. Are you crazy?

There's more a chance for him to eat a Mad-cow infested burger in England then there is of him getting shot by a rapper in the States.

You're all jumping the gun a little too soon here. Fuck's sake, the news hasn't even been out for two days and you're already getting your panties in a twist.

Give it some time before the dates are announced, and then resume your bitching.

Cheese is over-rated.
