Various internet news sites, including contactmusic and blabbermouth.net are reporting that not only will Kate Melua be joining Queen on stage at 46664 Fancourt but that she will also be recording new material with the band. Here is the article from Contactmusic:

"Rock legends QUEEN will grant Georgian-born singer KATIE MELUA's childhood dream when they perform together at NELSON MANDELA's South African AIDS charity concert later this month (MAR05).

The CRAZY hitmaker, Melua was inspired to become a performer by late frontman FREDDIE MERCURY, and she's thrilled she's been offered the honour of filling the legendary singer's shoes when she joins the recently reformed band in the studio to record new material.

The 20-year-old says, "I grew up in Georgia listening to Queen, because my uncles always played their records. It was seeing Freddie Mercury in the pirated videos we got in Georgia, especially LIVE AID, that inspired me to take up a career in music, although I decided to do without the spandex costumes."

Melua will appear on stage with guitarist BRIAN MAY, drummer ROGER TAYLOR and former FREE singer PAUL RODGERS at the 46664 FRANCOURT CONCERT in Cape Town on 19 March.

An insider adds, "Katie couldn't believe it when she was asked. She spent her childhood singing along to songs like CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE and A KIND OF MAGIC and is bowled over that she''ll soon be sharing studio time with legends."

I really like the news/rumours about Paul joing Queen for new studio material, but now she's ALSO involved? ..

It's probably studio material for 46664 purpose only.
