Well, reading Brian's latest entry on his website - it's obvious that they are planning to do a gig on Freddie's birthday this year, which would have been his 60th!

Exciting!
I put my bets on a show in London! ;-)

Never too early to open up a topic in which we can keep eachother informed out all this, is it?! ;-)

Careful, Jeroen, Brian does not mention a gig. He said they consider to do "something" to mark the occasion.

A couple of weeks ago a show about Queen was filmed for a German TV station and the fans who were there heard about an upcoming Double DVD to commemorate Freddie's 60th birthday/15th anniversary. So, the "something" might well be another edition of the Untold Story.

But to be on the safe side, I won't plan a longer vacation around that time:)

A 3rd DVD of Q+PR? Unlikely! But an older show would be great indeed!

I know! ;-)
But that's all I could make of it - as the guy specifically asked if there would be a gig. ;-)

Hey, Richard! Long time no see! Allswell?

A while ago John Stuart said that there is a release planned for the 60th b-day but we should not expect too much. QP must have hours and hours of unreleased Freddie interviews and other material, they can release 20 more extended Re-told Stories.

Hey Jeroen,

Yes...been very busy with work, work and some work. So the posting on this board decreased to a minimum. I had the day off and found some time to visit the board again. How were your USA experiences? I had a hell of time in Cleveland

I heard about a FM 2-disc DVD several years ago, and then it was said it was put on the back-burner for a while. One disc was going to be a extended version of the Untold Story, and the other disc was going to be a more comprehensive set of promo-videos and interviews *i think*...! Though I wouldn't be suprised if things have changed.

Unfortunately it's going to be a "Very Best of" album ... a-gain

Too bad, really would like to have seen a Tribute Concert; would have been a great excuse to go to London again , hahaha

You´re right about that, but i think that fans can help them "thinking" in something goo!!

Another best off??- CRAP!! I already have the box-set. They can re-release that or the mini box.

I think this has to be more special than that, and i go for a kind of Tribute 2. Will John join them??- Don´t know.

Probably they will release that best-of cd, but i don´t think it will be the major "Thing" if you know what i mean.

Take care
