R.I.P. John S. Stuart
On September 18 the world lost one of the most experienced Queen collectors - John S. Stuart. You may remember his articles on pre-Queen bands for the Record Collector magazine or his participation in discussions on QueenZone. His knowledge about recordings was vast and his contributions to the Queen community will never be forgotten.
The US tour is over, there will be one more gig on September 28 and that's it. I've yet to watch the videos and add dates and setlist to the QueenConcerts database but what I saw was extremely theatrical, almost like a pop musical. The 2017-2018 tour was excellent but I'm not so convinced about the 2019 Rhapsody tour at all.
In the past weeks I got some more tickets for my vast collection... if you have any for sale or trade
please check this list - my tickets are marked by the "check" sign. If there's no check sign it means
I need the ticket :-) Thank you in advance!
On this day [September 19]
Tour programs wanted!
Here is a list of concert programs that I need for my collection together with the price I'm willing to pay. There are a couple more that aren't listed here because I don't have any scan (All Cannings 2012, Wintershall 1998 + 2011). Please get in touch if you are willing to sell (or donate :-)) some of these items to me. Thank you!
Beware!!! Fraudster newyork-nyc selling fake tickets on ebay!
Until last year I've never come across any fake Queen tickets. Yes, there are tons of reprints and other framed cheap crap but the auctions always say so. But recently I've come across a very dangerous fraudster and it's very important to warn other collectors. One American citizen who is using several alter egos (Giorgio Bacci from New York, Marco B. from Seattle and possibly others) is selling tons of fake tickets via his ebay account newyork-nyc. All his tickets are literally megarare (such as Smile in Truro 1970), he also sells plenty of other (Beatles, Elvis, Led Zeppelin) tickets and it's not easy to spot that they're fake, they do look quite real on the photos. I was also fooled at first. Luckily he was stupid enough to sell the tickets to me (= to one of the biggest collector of Queen tickets in the world) and when I finally had the tickets in my hand everything became obvious. He downloaded the scans from my site, he just changed the ticket number, did a bit more Photoshop work, printed it using a cheap colour inkjet printer and creased it to make it look old. When I informed him about my research he was clearly afraid of bad publicity, refunded me immediately and stopped communicating, he even didn't want to have his fake tickets back! But he keeps selling more and more of those fakes tickets also he also sells many tickets off ebay, he has already cheated tons of people incl. Queen fans. Avoid this thief - ebay account newyork-nyc at all cost!
