The new poll just made me want to say this. I was a little iffy about them touring under the name Queen. However, it is still 50% of the band. Look at Jefferson Airplan/Jefferson Starship/Starship, they didn't have any original members by the time they were done. Or how about "Lynrd Skynrd" everyone in the band died and yet somehow they still tour and have a huge fan base and sell out concerts. I think since Brian and Roger put "featuring Paul Rodgers" on the tour posters, that it makes it 100% ok to tour under the name 'Queen'

spot on with your comments,it's all about the music first and foremost, let's all get behind Brian,Rodger and Paul to make this a tour to remember. let's hope all the real fans manage to get tickets before all these scum-bag touts get their hands on them!!

They should tour with the band name Queen as this will generate more interest.

All "hard core" fans would know the dates of the concerts and buy tickets even though they are overpriced. Those that have just got to know Queens music because of WWRY may not know the individual band members (surprising but true).

very true (about not everyone knowing who the members are) I know of a lot of people that would go to see the concert just because its Queen. they know we will rock you, we are the champions, etc but their knowlege of the band doesn't go beyond that. they just know they're a great and famous band. so i guess it's only the die hard fans that are getting their panties in a bunch about the paul rodgers hubub

i say cheers to Queen and Paul Rodgers and hope that it's one hell of a tour
