From Brian May:

Well Folks, we were all ready and rearing to go with the rehearsal thing the other day when suddenly we realised what a HUGE mistake we'd be making... suddenly this dawn of realisation hit me that there will be literally dozens of knuckle shufflers who've brought, or at the very least copied a load of our music and who now have access to the internet who'll be really upset AT THE VERY THOUGHT of this happening. Well how could we? After all, it is they who really own the band we know and love, Roger and I are merely its employees who've made a quid or two out of the whole thing. They clearly know what's best for us.

Why I suddenly now remember how Freddie used to say things like "Darlings, when I'm gone, I don't want people to enjoy my music played to a live audience anymore, if I'm not there, I'd be really insulted if you even thought about doing that... you know me, I'm the shy retiring type who'd HATE the thought of some kind of continued celebration of my art darling"

So to all of those thousands upon thousands of you who've brought tickets for this thing thinking what a great evening of musical entertainment you'd be in for, sorry but there's a few self superior knuckle shufflers out there who know better than you...

Love and Peace

Brian"

Great stuff!!! Sadly, there are "Queen fans" out there that would agree totally with "Brian".

Fantastic and well put.
But for some, the irony will be as clear as mud!

I've just burned my tickets for the 5 concerts I've selected (bye bye Brixton), cancelled my flights (no money to be returned), called off the hotels I've booked (again no money returned), called my boss that I WILL come to work on those days and yes, did shed a tear or two.

Well... now I will visit Brian's site to read this message personally...

Don't be upset. Just someone who didn't get a ticket I guess.
