It was a long grieving process, in a sense, losing Freddie, you know, and I was resistant to doing anything - I didn't even want to talk about Queen for such a long time. And then finally, you, you realize the love that is out there, and I thought, ''Well, yeah, if I was out there, I would like to see us go out and do the songs.''''
''Following the two US shows, the band will do a Japanese tour.''
''They will also release a live album called ''Return Of The Champions'' on September 13th, which they've previewed with the live cuts ''Reaching Out''/''Tie Your Mother Down'' and ''Fat Bottomed Girls.'' A concert DVD will follow on October 24th.''
