also note that Philly and toronto will be seen as sellouts because even though seats were left unsold,both shows sold alot of "side view" seats that made up for nose bleeder seats unsold.side views are considered extras in end stage layout concerts.

Thanks for the update on the attendance. I was in Buffalo, and I swear, there weren't 4,000 fans when the Eminem Rap kicked in...might have climbed up to 8,000, but there was a delay in the seating, as people had to exchange their tickets. Any word on the Euro cities? Would love more info, thanks!

This tour may catch some legs as the warm weather hits...seems to be gaining momentum, in an odd kind of way...

You heard it here first:

Queen+Paul Rodgers Tour
Summer 2007
Open Arena-Stadium Tour

20,000 fans rocking!
50,000 in some stadiums in bigger cities!

Let's do it!!! Freddie, can we get a witness??

I asked the woman at the will-call about 20 min before the show and she said it was close to a sell out.

The Xcel Center, according to its website, seats 18,064. I live about four miles from there, and it is usually filled to capacity when the Wild hockey team plays. Using 7,923 in attendance, I am getting a 44% capacity for Queen+. That sounds a bit sparse, but seating to the immediate left and right of the stage and the horseshoe area behind the stage (all three tiers) was blocked off as it always is for stage concerts because you can't see the stage from those areas. Thus we, the audience, were mooshed together throughout the rest of the arena, and the attendance IMO looked terrific.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
