Surprisingly several people I know are discussing the fact that Queen will be touring next year. Most of these people are not huge fans so it's obvious the word is out. Promoted properly this tour could do okay business. With a North American leg in the fall this could be like old times for Brian , Roger and Paul. Not sure about the name "Queen" but whatever sells tickets. After some initial skepticism I am in!

They might do better if they were the opening act for The Darkness or Robbie Williams - or a special show with Britney, Pink & Beyonce.

Nah! Queen would loook cheap if they werew an opening act - a bit like when Iggy and the Stooges opened for Madonna in Slane. And as we all know, Queen are not cheap. There was a huge feature on Queen and their up-coming tour in the Daily Mail on Friday the 17th December but the Sun did not know that Deacon's first name was John. They had him down as Roger Deacon!

Was that John on UK Music Hall of Fame playing with Brian and Roger

trust me. Demand for tickets in the uk will be huge. If Wembley stadium was available it would sell out no problem. I repeat, watch out,The milennium dome is a nigh on certainty for May bank holiday.

They will be lots of interest.. I think people are forgetting somewhat that it's not merely a "Queen" tour.. I think they'll play just as much of Paul's material from the likes of Free and Bad Company and also some Firm and solo stuff maybe?

So, there's going to be Paul's legion of fans from all his previous bands clambering for tickets too i'd imagine..

We all know that Queen without Freddie or John will not be the same. But I for one think it's great that Queen's music will be played live again by some of the original members.
I can tell you, if they come to Belgium, I will be there, no doubt about it.
