I have been looking at Amazon's sales ranking and every Queen album I looked at has increased in sales since yesterday.

For example:

Greatest Hits: Yesterday #96 - Today #65

A Night at the Opera: Yesterday #1645 - Today #582

News of the World: Yesterday #1118 - Today #732

A Day at the Races: Yesterday #1554 - Today #777

Queen II: Yesterday #2570 - Today #1087

Great information!
Wonder how the "new" album they released will do.

About 16 people on myspace told me they are going to buy Queen albums for more 'less heard' songs.

How is this a negative thing? You promote yourself, people like your music, and they buy it. This is the best kind of promotion they can be doing these days.

Now, had they done this TV show before the tour, they would have sold out a lot more than two or three venues.

Dude! This is great! This is the best time to re-release some singles, like they did with Bohemian Rhapsody. I think they should re-release 'Headlong' and some other stuff from the Innuendo, Miracle, Hot Space, Works, and Magic albums.

Don't they have enough money??

Why don't they do it the RIGHT WAY instead of shamefully latching onto a show like American Idol??? What's next? TV Promotional ads??

This is what RIGHT WAY:

Brian, and Roger, and Paul Rogers WRITE NEW SONGS, and release a NEW ALBUM!

They go on TOUR! And if they did this, I'm sure Queen catalogue will all experience renewed sales!
