New exciting concert releases
Forget the movie, forget Malek, forget boring Live Aid. Do you want to hear what the world's best band sounded like in their hard rock years? Download this latest bootleg release from Japan 1976. Listen to amazing recordings of concerts with Hangman, The Prophet's Song, Flick Of The Wrist, Ogre Battle or Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon in the setlist! The Japanese legs of the Sheer Heart Attack and A Night At The Opera tours were what started my love for Queen concerts...
Queen Locations - updated
Judit from Barcelona has updated her QueenLocations website. Now she lists not only Queen-related places in London or Barcelona but also in Munich, Vienna or Japan. Well worth reading!
On this day [June 24]
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!
