This from Queenworld.com.......our annual UK convention has been rescheduled to the end of September due to the possible clashing with the Queen + Paul Rodgers tour....what about the American fans and any other fans who have taken time off, scheduled plane tickets, et al.....Queen is not coming to America, so this is not affecting us...I know, I know, Americans do not make up very many of the population at the UK convention, but still...I know that the European fans may disagree with me, but rescheduling the convention is a bit drastic...of course, this is my opinion, so have at me if you will.

Hey Linda! Yes, this is official! Hot off the presses of Queenworld.com and Jacky Smith. The more I think about it, the better it is monetarily, I mean, I'll have more time to save some spending money, but still!!!! I have to switch my vacation time now, but thank goodness I had not booked my plane yet - *whew* Oh well, whatcha going to do? :-)

I think it stinks. They should have organised the tour round the convention. They managed not to clash in 1986 with the Magic tour and in 1993 with the Back to the Light tour.

One fed up and totally pissed of Queen fan.

I have to agree with that though. How did the other 19 conventions get put on (when Queen WAS touring of course) without clashing with the tour? Just another drama to put up with in the good ole' OIQFC.

I'm really really annoyed by this, once again we get shown just how much the loyal queen fans actually matter to them. Its all down to money they can't risk 2000 fans paying £100 each (for 4 days) to pontins instead of the rip off price of 65 quid for 90 mins or whatever to line thier pockets.

Thats fine we'll just rearrange something thats been around for 20 years and was happening the same time as the magic tour, all those people who booked flights...ahh well they should be happy cos the mighty "queen" are going on tour again.

We're not sheep.

it had nothing to do with the FC

and everything to do with a miscommunication between QP and the promoter--- who was basically not told of the convention.....

but of course the FC and Jacky will get the brunt of it .....

Yes, IE.....*waves* HI PAUL! I know, Jacky will get the brunt of the crap for this. I know it's not her fault, nor the fault of the FC itself, but this is just crazy. The promoters should have known about the convention, like DUH, it's been happening EVERY SPRING for 20 years. Oh well, like I said, whatcha going to do? I just have to look at this situation, look at the bright side and figure that I have more money to spend at the auction in Prestatyn in September! ;-)

Who and where did this information that it has been decided that Queen will not tour the U.S. at some point for this tour? Just because there are not dates or plans for it yet how is there a decision made that is so definitive?

**waves again at Paul** Hey you!!! You are so funny! I have some good pics of us at the bar at the Las Vegas premiere pre-party! :-) I am still so glad I did not make my plane reservations yet! I still hold out hope that Queen + Paul Rodgers will somehow make it to America, but again, I am not holding my breath! I will try to make the US Convention in August, but seeing as the UK one is in September.....OH, the choices one has to make......... ;-)

Well this looks like one UK resident who's gonna miss it as I'll be on holiday in good ol' USA for when its been rescheduled for. And no, I'm not giving up my first holiday in years for it.

Yall are so sweet! I did call Jacky that one night before the pre-party to talk about times...I should have called again, but I didn't know what was going on with the after-party tickets...RATS, RATS, RATS!!!!!!!!!!!!! My luck. The Paris is awfully big isn't it??? You can walk around that place for DAYS!! :-) Yes, very much hopefully next time and I so hope there will be a next time! ;-)
