Without the open air shows- the biggets one is M.EN. Arena in Manchester. 21000, apparently reduced for the gig to 17000. Pretty much sold out, from what I've seen...
Great venue, good view even from the last row on the balcony, and awesome sound... And man, what a crowd!

The MEN is the largest indoor arena in Europe and makes the Wembley Pavilion look like a tin shed!! Built as part of the no-hope Olympic Bid 2000.

Gee, I'm glad I didn't go to the Pavilion - a shit heap of a place and totally crappy for the fans who can't get a decent view. Sooner it's demolished the better!!


We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.

Well, Hyde Park is yet to come. And Gerledome (Ahrnem, 10th July) has a capacity around the 35.000 I think.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

As I said before, Prague is for rock concerts reduced "only" to 14500 or so. Barcelona and Manchester are among the biggest venues.

This makes me fear the worst for North America. Is there anywhere in North America that Queen can find 10,000 fans? I hope Iron Eagle is whistling for a good reason.

John Mayer played the Garden here in NY, and the only ones who like his music are sexually frustrated women in their 40s.

I can for sure see them selling out The Garden.

I hope you are right Jingles. Better yet, I hope Queen plays within 500 miles of Chicago (or preferably in or near Chicago).

I don't want to shell out money for airfare and hotel as I can not really afford more than one Queen out of town junket this year. So, I picked Breakthru because I felt that was more entertaining (2 days versus 2 hours) and a better value. I suppose my priorities are screwed up, but that is how I feel.

I think a lot of fans will get really pissed off if they don't add any more dates other than NY and LA. The reputation of the band will be put at risk. This ia a damn big ass country, and travelling to either coast will require for most people to spend a lot of money. If other cities are to be picked for them to tour I'm sure it will include Chicago, Boston, Houston, Washington, Seattle, Cleveland, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami, Detroit, Phoenix, and perhaps Minneapolis.

I'm sure that if not in 2005, then they'll add U.S. tour dates in 2006. Yet, we shouldn't jump in joy until dates are confirmed, including NY and LA.

I remember Pink Floyd only played NY and LA for their The Wall tour ... I hope this is not the case with Queen on this potential NA tour.
