HELLO PHILADELPHIA!

You want info on the Philadelphia meetup? We'll be tailgating indoors at McFadden's. It's within staggering distance of the gig. All are welcome, which means QOL people, QZ people, Queen Fan Club people, Breakthru people, Queen fans, Paul Rodgers fans, etc.

The management at McFadden's is expecting us and they are going to have some drink and food specials for us if you are on the guest list, such as $3 U Call Its (well drinks, house wine, domestic bottles, and domestic drafts) as well as half-price appetizers and a Queen theme (posters, music, and videos) going that night. This is VERY cool of them.

To be part of our group and to be eligible for the reduced price specials, you need to get on "THE LIST" that I will be providing them. When you arrive at McFadden's, if you are on the list, you will be issued a bracelet identifying you as one of our group so you can get in on the specials. So . . . PLEASE RSVP to me ASAP with your real name so I can add you to THE LIST. My email address is: youreadyfreddie@gmail.com

Also, just for fun, please post here if you are coming, from where you are coming, and in keeping with the tradition started before last year's Q+PR Manchester gig, which shirt you will be wearing to the gig if you're the sort that plans those things in advance.

You might want to give them a call and see if you think it's a good fit for your daughter. It is a bar, but they do serve food. As far as I'm concerned, kids are just as welcome as anyone else, and I met some great kids at the 2005 Q+PR gigs. Kids rock! I sat next to a guy who brought his 8 year old son to the Meadowlands gig. I taught the little guy the ga-ga arms for Radio Ga Ga. Ryan and Julian in Aruba turned out to be huge Brian May fans. We had a blast. I'm bringing my niece to the San Diego show. It will be her first rock concert.

*note to self: remember to teach niece the ga ga arms.

You can take your kids to McFadden's - that's never a problem. Half the people in there before Phillies games have kids with them.

Just a reminder to everyone going in Philly - there's also a Sixers game the same night. I'm sure there will be some b-ball fans in the house at some point, too.

Will I be at the tailgate at McFadden's - I'm not sure yet. I'll be sure to get in touch with you, Crazy, if I do.

Ciao!

Well, let's see. You had it on at the tailgate party . . . were you wearing a shirt when you left the gig? ;)

97.5 the Hawk was having a contest all week for tickets, a limo ride to the show and a chance to meet the band! I tried all week like a crazy person but did not win. I hope the person who did really wanted it!!

Hey Stateside Fan-

Do you still have an extra ticket available? If you still have one, I am still interested in buying it from you. I could pay for it at the pre-show thing at McFadden's.
