I have read that Jeff Scott Soto of Jorney has announced they have been talking about some possible dates linking Q+PR and Journey together. I think this would be the Ultimate tour as these are my two favourite bands. The links are quite good too - Brian and Jeff are Quite good friends, Paul Rodgers and Neal Schon have toured togethre and recorded together a lot in the past (and both of them have new lead singers. Lol.). I saw Journey on their recent European tour and they were amazing, the best band to tour with Queen I think. What do you think?

Can we move it further to a "my other favourite band is XXXX and I would love them to tour with QPR, that would be awesome etc etc" thread?

We can then get everyone's fantasies into one place.

Yes, a new category please.

Q+PR and YES tour 2008.
Jon Anderson hits all the high notes that Paul & Brian can't

Q+PR and GENESIS tour 2009.
Peter finally joins the reunion, and digs up Sinead O'connor to sing Tie Your Mother Down

Q+PR and Cindy Lauper tour 2010
Girls just wanna have fun... with sixty year-old rockers. Check the Personal forum, you'll see.

Q+PR and Paula Abdul tour 2011
To payoff an old debt Brian and Paula had.

Q+PR and The League Of Crafty Drummers tour 2012
After the fatal heart attack, Queen plods on with a cast of drummers.

finally...

Q+PR and John Deacon!!!
John finally gets his solo hit and overshadows everything he ever did with Queen. He gets top bill but refuses to play with Brian, Larry, Steve, and Bob the current members of Queen.

That must be his version of the band. After being unable to hit any of the Steve Perry notes, why would Neal Journey and Jonathan Journey hire that spare again?

i saw Journey here in the states last year and they rely heavily on tricks.Brian was very kind about JSS,but i thought he ducked more notes then even PR.Journey really tricks the casual fan by not even making it know that steve perry is not going to be there.and for whats its worth steve perry stopped hitting steve perry notes after 1983 live.Bad mix and i hope it doesnt happen.Journey should be grouped with the Cars and Blondie at this stage.

Journey without Steve Perry is horrible...I have a friend who saw them recently around the same time as Brian and he didn't enjoy the gig too much. I suppose you could say Q+PR is pointless but it's all up to you. I think Q+PR is good but the current Journey is NOT. Journey is practically over since Steve Perry can't sing anymore either way...

Yes, and Brian turned up a couple of times, as did Steve Lukather.

I think Jason Bonham was on drums too, so on that basis we can have a QPR/journey/Toto/Foreigner supergroup bestriding the planet and laying waste to all before them.

An American accent singing Queen is juist plain awful. He's a great singer but it just doesn't sound right.

Queen joining the ranks of other classic rock bands having to do a joint tour to fill seats would be an all-time low point image-wise, even worse than American Idol. Queen has a mystique and legendary status...they can't maintain something like that by touring with a band so far beneath them like Journey (though I do really like Journey). Queen changed the course of music history and has a British sophistication; Journey is a really, really good rock band, but unfortunately has more of a blue-collar image like Bon Jovi.

Maybe if Queen toured with Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin, The Who or someone else truly legendary it would be a great ticket, but there just aren't many bands up to Queen's status IMHO.

I saw Journey in 2005, and while they weren't awful, but I do really miss Steve Perry. There are so many bands I'd love to see tour with Queen (Def Leppard, Styx, etc.) but I can't think of a single band that has all the original band members still. No matter what, there will be someone complaining that "it just isn't the same without -------".

More likely to be 'Queen + puppet show' - or vice versa...
