No. Maybe I'm sounding like a godforsaken man, but Queen + PR played gig in Rome after the Pope's death and if they're gonna play after these attacks in London - it'd be horrible, IMO.

We have such things in Russia and in Moscow (Chechen terrorists, you know) and no-one ever played any concerts on the next day after such attacks. 'The Show Must Go On' concept doesn't supposed to play on the graves.

Sergey, my thoughts exactly. This is not about etiquette. You don't throw a party (concert) when a city is in chaos and people are dying or have already died, less than 24 hours later.

I also think Al Queda didn't bomb Live 8 because there was so much security and an event like that, anticipates terrorist attacks way ahead of time, so everyone's guard is up.

This was intentionally planned, on a quiet work day, at the height of workrush hour, when the London transport system was packed,

....with innocent men, women, and children.

...when London and people had their guard down, were most vulnerable.

I cannot and will not accept coward evil fanatics killing innocent people.

I hope Tony Blair catches the butchers who did this and strings them up by their balls.

I am tired of these fanatics killing inncocent people and they are nothing but twisted Fuck cowards.
