Where has this 'official' announcement come from though? It's not yet on the BM website, etc.

Sorry... I'm just holding onto my last little bit of hope :(

One word... GUTTED!

Who's playing on the 16th then? cos this would be a good opporunity to move it to a Saturday and sell the remaining tickets as a result...

Brian just posted the official 7/8/05 postponement and next week's rescheduling news of the Hyde Park concert on his website.

I agree with decision. It was rather bad this morning. I came earlier to work (luck?) so I was at Liverpool Station at 8:31. Afterwards we could hear emergency, but I initially thought someone jumped in fron of the train. Then someone came with information there has been explosion. We didn't take this serious or at least we didn't thought that terrorist attack was under the way... until on speaker at all floors we were told that police ordered evacuation. When leaving the building I could see whole area being blocked, but we thought that only Liverpool station is affected (that was around 9:30).. While on the move we heard about Edgware Road... but things were still confusing at that moment as different "news" were floating around. Then later we saw another guy who told us about bus (at that moment someone everyone was talking about 3 buses, at one moment even 6 buses and 8 explosions).. so everyone was just trying to get away. Then all pubs and bars along the river started to shut down with order to close teh service, stay inside and help anyone who comes in need for emergency help. So feeling was that something much bigger than it is was going on. While going to hotel (via Thames path and then "park line" like St. James, Green and then Hyde to Victoria gate) it felt like there were other explosions, but this was probably river hitting concrete under the bridge making that noise as explosion in distance. However, not nice feeling at all. With all that, I hoped concert would be postponed because:
a) I wanted that everyone has some kind of security and having concert on enxt day is not
b) Many people would not come to concert anyway

I was told in hotel where I'm that many people did cancel their bookings already in morning and they were coming for Q+PR and REM.

I'm buying bike tomorrow... no more undeground and bus services for me :(

The official Hyde Park site doesn't list anything as happening on the 16th, so why it couldn't have been rescheduled for the Saturday is beyond me.

I've just found on ticketmaster info (it was about old rescheduled show of REM) that in case you cannot attend, they will pay the money back if you send them back the ticket or bring it back to the place of purchase. I assume for Queen rules are the same. However I asked them about it in email, and I'm still waiting for a response. I also want to know what about collecting tickets. It was planned for tomorrow, but I'm not sure if thousands of people will be able to come tomorrow to a heart of London.

I have to say that I'm glad it is on the 15th, as I've got a family wedding that I can't get out of on the 16th. Thank you REM!!!
That said, my thoughts are with the friends and family of the 37 dead (so far) and the many injured.
