Hello,
How come Queen and Paul Rodgers are not going to be at Live 8?, I think they certainly deserve to be there, No Live 8 would not be the same without Queen


Brian May is the Best Guitarist ever!

not sure about Slash

Well I saw this one today from tthe Latest Queen news(On Queenzone).Check this out:
It has been announced from a Uk radio station that Queen will play in the live8 concert via a satelite link from their concert in Lisbon. Not sure if Queen will be playing or just be in a video message.

And I found it on:

How can the headline say ''Queen will be playing..." and in the article it says ''performance'' and then again one is not sure if they are playing or just leave a message? I don't get it...

Well,I suppose if they're gonna leave a message it would be like:''Sorry we couldn't join Live 8 but we had a concert in Lisboa or something like that.''
But if they're gonna play sth it would be live.

Let's just hope they play a song or two...for the Live 8 cause and the world (via satellite of course from their show in Portugal)

Yup. But too bad im gonna miss it this Saturday because im going upstate michigan and we dont have cable there. Poor me. :(


Well...you are not the only one. I don't have cable either. :(

I was very lucky with the original Live Aid. While it was on MTV in 1985, I didn't have cable then either. BUT...ABC broadcast most of it as did another non cable station here in Maryland, and our local FM radio station, 98 Rock, simulcast it, so I watched it from 7:00am EST in the USA, when it began in the UK at 12:00 pm their time, til like 11:00pm that night when it ended here in the USA.

I turned the sound down on my TV, and CRANKED up the volume on my stereo radio receiver...and had a blast!

But...I will miss Live 8, and with it a part of history and a music event you won't see the likes of again.

No I meant that I will not be able to watch
Live 8 , which is historic, (like Live Aid)because I have no cable and Live 8 is only being shown on cable TV.

Hello guys!!!!I've found this today on Brian's soapbox.Brian wrote:
''I suppose I have to comment on the fact that there is incorrect information out there in the papers, saying Queen and Paul Rodgers are playing at LIVE 8 in Hyde Park. There never was any possibility we would be there, and never will be. We are in Portugal playing their very lovely football stadium, and that is IT ! We will be sending a supportive message to LIVE 8 TV.''~Brian May~

So according to him,it would be just a bloody supportive message... :(

It's a shame that they won't be adding a song to that videotaped message....I'd like to think maybe there is still a shred of hope and it's a surprise....heck even if it was a loose jam in warmup...
