I'm quite interested to know how far and how much $$$ people are planning/willing to invest to see "Queen"/etc in 2005. It'd also give a good indication of poeple's general interest levels.

Hopefully only about 15 minutes on the tube.

Im sure Wembley Arena or London somewhere will be on the tour dates which wont be a problem for me, just a 45 min train ride :)

Bugger traveling, done all that in 1977, 78, 79, 82, 84, and 86, its either Nottingham, Sheffield, Birmingham or Manchester for me, all within 90 mins.

If they don't come to the states im gonna have to get over my fear of flying and catch the closest gig.

But if they plan on coming to the US im willing to drive anywhere to see them.

If I have the money, I'd go to Paris/London. I'm from the Netherlands. I hope to see as much gigs as possible :P

I'm sure they'll do Germany so you can probably include that, too!

I wouldn't go abroad to see them. Germany yes and depending on the ticket prices I'd go to Berlin or Munich or wherever they intend to play in Germany.

I'm pretty much willing to go anywhere that they play. London wouldn't be much of a problem for me.

If they are near (up to 200km)...

and depending on the ticket prices. (it would be a differnt thing if somebody wouldn't be missing...)

on the other hand i think the venues won't be too big...

Considering the several bad experiences this year... I'd probably travel only to Germany, Austria or UK (if close to some airport).

Roger mentioned Germany, so I hope there will be a gig close to my area. If not, I travel as far as I have to - it cannot be worse than London (no Brian) or Benidorm (no concert).

There could be another lovely QZ meeting in the Cock, Hackney!

I'm sure they'll play London, so i'll have a 25 minute train journey. Although cannot say i'm over excited by this whole gig thing, although maybe that will come later. Suppose it jogged my memory of this place when I saw the news, which might be a good thing.

If they only play the songs from the old tours, I'd only travel if they also had the ticket prices of the old tour! :-)
Honestly, I don't think I want to travel further than 200 km.

On Sunday night in Cologne Rog talked to us fans waiting outside and confirmed that they'll be playing germany. And as the musical is playing in cologne and we have Europes largest IndoorArena (if it still is) with the 19.000-Seater Kölnarena, it'll be a train-ride of about 15 Minutes for me... and they are still huge here in germany, so I'm sure it will be a sell-out !

But I'd also travel to Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich... I'd travel to Tokyo to see them !
