Hi everyone,

Just letting you know that the petition to bring the QPR Tour to Australia is going well.
We have had a couple of radio spots, some newspaper articles, and this week will be in the main Melbourne paper (circulation 1.5million - that's not bad for a city with a population of about 3 million!)

We still need a few more signatures before we can progress to the next step, and this is where we need your help.
I know some of you may think that a petition would be fruitless - why bother??

I will tell you why.

The girl running this campaign, Isis (along with an evergrowing team of supporters), is working day and night, calling media, getting articles in the papers, being interviewed on radio, and calling in all contacts in a HUGE (and in my opinion, a very professional way).
She is prepared to even spend her own money to do this!! She is inspirational!
Even if you don't live in Australia, and maybe have no plans to come here (even if a tour goes ahead here), I hope you can take a moment - if you haven't already - and add your name to the petition. This is all we ask from you.

While you are there, you can check out the aussie queens team profiles, and there is a great 24hr Queen radio link as a bonus! (one of our sponsors).

For those of you who have, and are supporting our quest, I thank you so much, and hope to see you lined up in the queue in Australia real soon!!

Cheers, and thanks
Karen

No, if you can't say anything positive, I would prefer you keep it to yourself. We need support at this stage.
Thanks

What you prefer isn't important, nor anyone else who's behind this "campaign."

Queen and Paul will come there if there's money to be made. Appeal to the financial side of things and you might convince them.

You can scream for them to tour there all you want but if they don't think it'll be worthwhile to undertake such an operation, you're screwed.

Look at America. Lots of money to be made here but the guys were VERY unsure of the reaction they'd get, that's why they only did two shows. Since they both sold out, they'll come back next year. If you're lucky you might get a couple of "test" concerts to gauge reaction. I'd hope for that as a starter.

Despite the fact that doing so renders the entire process laughably pointless.

I love that fact that this is such a good idea (apparently) that it stands up to absolutely no objective scrutiny.

I am only a supporter - I am not privy to all the facts and behind the scenes work. All I know is that lots of people are working hard to make this a possibility.

We are not appealing to Brian and Roger directly - they know where we are, and yes, whether they want to come or not is up to them in the end. We are appealing to promoters (I believe). Sorry, I dont have any more details.

Does it matter to you how many signatures we have - or how many we need?? Even I don't know how many we have - all I know is we have a deadline (not sure when), and I am doing every thing in my power to get the word out. I believe in what Isis is doing. If you want more details, then check out her posts in queenonline, in the aussie pub. Go on, the drinks are on Isis.

Thanks for your interest.

Thanks Jamie - we appreciate any support we can get. Our problem is, there are plenty of Queen fans in Australia - but of course only a tiny minority actually come to these message boards.
We are working on the main media here too - so it is not something just confined to these forums. This is just another outlet we are appealing to..........

but see, you don't LIVE there, you wouldn't be buying a ticket to the show, they wouldn't be getting your money. So what's the point? That's like me telling a movie studio "Please release this classic movie on DVD. I won't buy it though but I'm sure somebody would."

Mr Allred.

Get a life, does it really bother you if someone outside OZ helps out a good cause.

Guys and Gals.

Sign up from wherever you are.

avfc1969, don't be so fucking sensitive.

Anyone living outside of Australia that signs up for anything related to this will only undermine it's credibility and that's the truth. It doesn't help your cause, it hurts it. Sit down and think about it.

Mr allred.

No need for language like that (who is being sensitive?). We are all on the same side...
