Do you think queen + PR will ever tour the states again after they finish up this spring? I'd love to see them again, they put on one killer show. Unfortunately I could only make the Cleveland concert and none others. I'm afraid that with the mediocre ticket sales and audiences that they might be hesitant to come back.

What do you all think?

Am I only destined to see Brian and Roger once in this lifetime?

I have a feeling they'll probably do an album or maybe even (eek) another compilation or something that needs promoted...they'll probably find an excuse to do it again I bet, though I'm sure they'll say they don't plan on until then (just like this time :)

Something tells me that this will be it for the USA. I think they might come back in the Fall if they decide to add another leg to the tour, but I would guess that they will take some time off this summer(except Paul with his solo shit) and then start working on a new album. If/when the album comes out and they decide to tour again... Europe/Asia only. I do not see them coming back here unless it's a REALLY short tour or another NY/LA hit like they did last fall.

Who is to blame for this?? We are!

American's have the shittiest musical taste of any culture in the world. Look at the shit we export, the musical genres we have created, and how poorly our rock bands show in comparison with the British. It extends band/musical taste apparently because we don't have it. What should say it all with Queen is that Bo Rhap, the biggest song ever, made it to #9(I think) while Another One Bites The Dust was Queen's biggest hit ever in the USA.

Just think about that. Of all the songs and music Queen has created, THAT SONG is their biggest hit over here??? And it takes some talentless gimp like Vanilla Ice to butcher Under Pressure before it becomes a hit?

As my favorite comedian Bill Hicks once said, "Debbie Gibson had the number one album in the country last year(88), now if that doesn't make your blood fucking curdle then you are officially an enemy of mine."

Wow you are so right...I don't see why Americans are so uneducated about good music...

It is difficult psychologically for me to understand how the American public are so oblivious to the history of Rock N' Roll and have so little care for it. Instead they prefer rap, video games, following some bouncy ball somewhere, and beer/chemical substances. I have quite a health obsession for just Rock N' Roll my dears!

I also think that Queen should continue this "Return Of Champions Live World Tour 2005-2006" throughout the world AND bring it back to the U.S. THIS YEAR as they have not hit many markets and cities here in the U.S. and should tour some others again as they desperately need to raise their interest here in the U.S. more.

Don't be afraid rickelrr, Brian said it's just beggining! Paul is going anway, so I think they might choose someone else. If so, that would be fantastic!
AmeriQueen, congrats for this post, at least you admit that. But I'll never forgive you calling me less than intelligent.

The reason is that the truly brill music in ignored simply because it is not promoted extensively like the "crap" is! It's all about promotion. Your average Amercian consumer can be equated with a sheep...they do what they are told to do via tv, press, etc. and buy into whatever these outlets tell them are "right", "good", or "hot". I've seen it so many times here and it's very idiotic the way the majority of the people in this country let others think for them.

Music promotors and record companies of course over-promote the crap as they know no one will listen to it or more importantly buy it if they are'nt led to beleive its the "hip new thing". REAL talent is ignored as it's seen as un-marketable in this country..that and the fact most talented bands can't get the vast promotion that majot labels can offer them. The only way that can happens is if they 'sell out' and start playing the same type of musical fodder everyone else is. Originality and Talent are seen as road blocks. Vapidness and Conformanism is seen as the Holy Grail in the musical industry it seems here.

It's disgusting and unfair! Right now there are thousands of wonderful songs being produced and recorded that most of us will never hear thanks to this bogus set of "rules". All i can think of is the plot to the WWRY Musical...it's all too true!!

Damn them all...the marketers of this swill knows as "Popular Music" here in the US. It's all bollocks as far as im concerned...there has'nt been a decent song released over here in i don't know how long!! It's infuriating, as this is supposed to be where Rock n' Roll was born and look where we are now? Pumping out inept Rap songs and other drivel...and going one step further by exporting it and poisioning the world's airwaves. Kids in other countries think it's "cool stuff" since it's from the US...but i have to tell you...it's CRAP!

God i hope we have a reinnisance or something...and SOON. Thank the Gods we at least have great bands from the UK still visit us...and thank the Gods we have Queen+PR. Without these outlets, i think i'd go spare in no time.

So true. Our music is so bad - that's why American Idol is popular - people want to hear music with a recognizable tune for a change, even if it is a song from the 50s or 60s, sung by an amateur.

I'm with YOU, Donna (regarding your 1st post). Without HOPE, we are all in _ _ _ _.


Consider that "from Above," perhaps Freddie knew how much so many of us needed this. Not to wax too "religious" or whatever, but hell, I know I needed to "rock" at a concert like I did when I was 20. Allow an old-timer a story...

Back in 1988 or so...(good grief...what's that tell ya...?), a singer named "Meatloaf" played at a friggin' BAR here in Buffalo, New York, in front of, oh...maybe about 2,000 people for $12 a head. But when the fat-man came STORMING out onto the stage, running from end-to-end, with that maniacal look and GLARE as he worked the crowd feverishly, SWEATING cannon balls all night...over the PUMPING intro of 'Bat Out of Hell'...it was THAT moment that I knew anything was possible.

He later shouted to the crowd that they were working on 'Bat Out of Hell Part II', due out next year, and that he was BACK and BIGGER and BADDER than ever...

Sure as his word...he played to a larger venue the next year, and then his record took off like nothing nostalgic I ever seen. It was glorious.

Only 8,500 fans showed up in Buffalo on a Friday Night. Yet my friends and I haven't stopped talking about it. EVERYone loves a good comeback. Maybe...just maybe...someone UP there is still going to allow us all to 'have our day'.

Oddly...it just occurred to me that 'our day' was with 8,490 other Buffalonians. It's the rest of the town and city and country that will eventually discover this band. Will it be as genuine...? I wonder...

Perhaps, Cricket, perhaps. At least at this point, I can rest in peace.

munchsack, thanks for being a complete ass. I would suspect that its a bit easier for you in scotland to make it to a show in England than for me in the US to cross the atlantic. I was in no way whining, just asking for peoples opinions if they thought there'd be another US tour.

I'll be first in line to buy tickets if they come back after this spring. After having heard him live, I'd be pleased if Paul came back. I'd rather them not tour if paul didn't come back though, I think 3 lead singers is a couple too many.

If you don't like them touring without Freddie, I can understand that. But if you've actually been to a show...I think it would give you a major change in perspective. Sure its not the same, but it is one helluva show nonetheless. They do Freddie and his songs a great deal of justice, they don't make a discgrace out of what Queen was, and they don't take away from what Freddie did. I think they make some good tributes to him during the shows in fact. Most everyone there knows who is the genious behind all of this great music, and his absence doesn't go without noticing. And for people like me who were born in the mid 80's - this tour gives us a chance to see and hear Brian and Roger play Queen songs live, something that would otherwise be impossible.

Now, if they do come back, goddammit promote this tour a little better (ok, just promote it PERIOUD!) they would see a big rise in attendance.

I hate to say it but this is the last hurrah. This is a one off, saddly. I won't be surprised if they do tour S. America & the land down under. But thats it. They can say they "Toured the World" at that point. I am forever grateful that I was privleged enough to see the Meadowlands last Oct. & three shows on this current tour. I am struggling to not pull the trigger & jet out to Vegas for that show! Those of you who are waiting for their concert to arrive, enjoy it! Take it all in as best you can. It will be over in a flash!

They are only doing 4 of Freddie's songs on this tour (Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Love of My Life, Bo. Rhap., and We are the Champions, or 5 if you count the Beautiful Day remix which plays just before the concert).
