Headline ''In The News, Reunited Queen To Tour America''
''Queen are set to play their first U.S. shows since 1982, with former Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers replacing the late Freddie Mercury. The re-formed group, which played its first live show in South Africa in March, is scheduled to make stops in New York and Los Angeles in October...with a broader American tour likely in 2006. ''I don't think we had any idea quite how far it would go when we began this'', says guitarist Brian May from Germany, where Queen had just played a concert. The band will release a live CD and DVD this fall and after some ''dabbling in the studio'', is contemplating recording a CD of new material.''
Queen Tributes By Live 8 Performers Highlighted In Rolling Stone Magazine
The July 28, 2005 issue of the USA edition of Rolling Stone Magazine actually..gives a gracious, glowing, highlighted synopsis of Green Day's and Robbie Williams's Live 8 Tribute Performances to Queen.
In article ''Live 8's Global Uprising'' by Brian Hiatt
''Two acts paid tribute to Queen's legendary appearance at the original Live Aid. In Berlin, Green Day plunged headlong into ''We Are The Champions'' with singer Billie Joe Armstrong pushing his vocal range to match Freddie Mercury's high notes and leading thousands of swaying Germans in a singalong. And in London, Robbie Williams began his set with a playful attempt at ''We Will Rock You'', dashing across the stage with a mike stand, Freddie Mercury style.''

Berlin: Crowd 200,00, Green Day paid tribute to Queen with ''We Are The Champions''.
Queen nod also in Article/Interview with My Chemical Romance
''Their music is a cross between Queen and the Misfits, combining the four on the floor drive of old school punk with the camp and theatricality of glam.''
