|Come to Croatia, last time they were here was 1979 in 'Dom Sportova', Zagreb.
if they go to Belgrade, they should really come to Croatia too..
|There are some (allthough small) chances for that. There are few negotiations still under discussion, and if everything went well, it may happen....|
|yes please come to croatia, i'm also from croatia and i wanna see them there. they can play again in dom sportova, capacity is about 10 000|
|I personally think they should have chosen Croatia instead of Serbia but that's just my opinion. I may be wrong but whenever I hear "Serbia", I think of war and whenever I heard of Croatia, I think of holiday.|
|right on mr. scully! btw i was at scorpions concert last year and i saw a guy there with Q + PR t shirt so we started chatting and he told me he was in budapest 2005 concert just like me and that he was with a guy who has queenconcerts page and i know that's you. i think he's also on super live in japan dvd (budapest documentary id disc 2), he's also from croatia. remember him?|

I forgot to add that Slovenia would be an obbvious choice too as it's the richest country of that region.

I really don't wanna talk about politics!
Obviously you're not informed very well about Serbia!
Some of the bands played here in last few years (mostly '06 and '07):
The Rolling Stones
Deep Purple x2
The Cult x2
Slayer (will play again in june)
Sisters of Mercy
Soulfly (more than 2x, can't remember)
Blind Guardian x2
Paul Di' Anno (also more than 2x)
Kamelot (again in april)
Devil's Slingshot (MacAlpine/Sheehan/Donati)
Chris Rea (just few days ago!)
Napalm Death (few times)
many other extreme metal bands...
many blues and jazz artists
and also some acts like:
Really can't remember all of them now...
will play in 2008:
Kiss, John Fogerthy, Status Quo, Queen+PR, Slayer, Nick Cave, Kamelot(with Firewind as guest), Paul Anka, Mark Knopfler, John McLaughlin, Tokio Hotel (LOL), Nile, Onslaught, Lenny Kravitz, Cypress Hill... and just check lineups of this 2 metal festivals: link and link
not to mention EXIT festival (damn huge!!!), Eurovision song contest etc...
So it's quite stable situation at the moment (except in Kosovo), but if that western politicans continue to make a mess with recognition of Kosovo independence, and if nationalists won forthcoming elections, who knows what may happen in the future...
Anyway, you're all welcome in Belgarde! Yes, people from Croatia too! In fact, i'm going to Iron Maiden concert in Split this august, so I'm looking forward to meet some Croats here also... :)
|crusader84 - my post wasn't meant against Serbia in general. It was just that Serbians seem too wild to me. I know about the problems with Kosovo and such but I'd say even such things can be solved more peacefully than by attacking UN forces.
But let's forget about politics :)

But let's forget about politics :)And I didn't mean it was against, just not well informed... :)
And this about attacking UN forces is also not well informed, 1st UN forces attacked non-armed Serbs who were in the building of the court in Kosovska Mitrovica, and then came people from outside of the court to help their friends which have been attacked... And all of that happened on march 17th, exactly 4 years after this link
All in all, western european countries made a lot of unnecessary mess there, and I think now they are becoming conscious of what they did... They are supporting US goverment wihout thinking of consequences. And US politics, that is a special story.
All that about Kosovo is one very, very long story, if someone is interested, can read articles from Wikipedia about history of Kosovo, and ask me on some private contact, I don't wanna spam this forum... :)
I hope Q+PR will also come in Croatia, but if don't, as I have already said, you're all welcome in Belgrade!
Hey buddy, contact me so that we can drink a beer together in Split... ;o)
|it's pretty stupid to say serbs are 'a bit too wild'. if you want to comment on something, inform first. otherwise you're insulting.|
|fellow croats and serbs!
which concerts are you planninng to see that are close to craotia and serbia? i'll be going in budapest, belgrade and vienna
na koje koncerte mislite ici od ovih bliže hrvatskoj i srbiji? ja namjeravam ici u budimpeštu, beograd i bec
|Probably my first post here, even though I've been lurking for years...
If I decide to go see Q+PR it'll definitely be Belgrade. As I am not a fan of PR (to put it mildly) I'm still not sure what to do.
Pozdrav svima iz bivse Juge!
|i've got question for theCro, i'm also from croatia and i remember you said few weeks ago that you'll get queen interview from '79 especially for tv zagreb. did you get it? will you post it here?|
Mr. Scully wrote: I forgot to add that Slovenia would be an obbvious choice too as it's the richest country of that region.yes, but they are biggest tightasses in the region also

But let's forget about politics :)always problems with serbia. first in 1990's with war with us (Croatia)..then with Bosnia, then Makedonia i think then Kosovo... nobody likes serbia .. oops i forgot to mention Montenegro who ALSO separated from them.. i mean, they're like boring leech's ..even NATO bombarded them..want more?
back to the topic: i think Queen should have in first place planned concert in Croatia..
|I will probably go to Belgrade concert. Pozdrav svim Queenovim fanovima iz Hrvatske i Srbije!|
|We should have them play in Afghanistan as well, then a summer leg thru Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and maybe The Ivory Coast.
But with all the machine guns, can you still smoke and sneak in a bottle of Crown?
|No, we don't.|
|I wish Queen were coming to Zagreb because it'd be cheaper not having to travel abroad. But then, when I remember how sloppily the Dream Theater gig was organized, maybe it's a good thing they're giving us a pass...
As for Belgrade, I don't give a toss about this retarded Croats vs. Serbs tribal dispute. I spent some time in a multicultural setting, I had vindaloo with Englishmen and cocoa with Africans, but now you expect me to frown at people who are a four hour drive away and speak almost the same language?
No go. Local hatemongers should look for another sheep, cos I'm busy - I have a gig to see. And hopefully get some of that tasty burek...
|Whole Serbo-Croatian conflict is making me sick. I'm tired of listening that over and over again. Just shut up, keep some things for yourself and don't talk about fucking politics on qz. This is only place where I'm far away from all that crap.
|AND stop selling your shit in here because I know better.
|This shit about politics, John Lennon sad it well, you can also hear it as a bonus track on Return of the Champions DVD... ;-)
I'm just tired of showing Serbs as the bad guys, and Serbia as some damn hole somewhere in the mountains of south-east Europe!
NATIONALISM IS DISGRACE! I hate it, no matter from where it comes!
We all are people of flesh and blood, and, I may say unfortunatelly, of some nation and religion, we couldn't choose where we'll be born (I would prefer some Scandinavian country, or Malta, somethin' like that ;-) ), we are not guilty for some bad things that some idiots in the past did in the name of our nation! Music is one of the things which may help with prevailing of stupid prejudices, so lets speak about music.
And if someone wanna more talk about politics, send me a PM! :P
Hey, I'm happy 'cause of Croatian success on Euro 2008 (ya know, football thing ;-)), that means somethin', I guess... :) (CESTITAM!, Da nije Nizozemaca, verovao bih i da možete da titule, narocito mi drago zbog Bilica, Iron Maiden/West Ham related ;-) )
I wanna come to Croatia, especially to see bands which are not coming to Serbia, so if some band is coming to SER and not to CRO, don't blaim us for that! Say it to your promoters! And, of course, if you wanna come on Belgrade concert, you're welcome!
|We all know what happened, we've been there. Lets stop the thing with washing hands because they are bloody as hell. Things are not that simple... About the thing that people see Serbs as a bad guys, you should maybe think twice about that BECAUSE name did not came from nowhere...
About the concerts. Only concert that I wish I've seen in Belgrade was the one that Toše had 14.2.2007. I have it at home and it's amazing =)
Same as all his concerts...
|Good post, crusader. I also think it's not good to blame the nation just because part of it are nationalists. Nationalism is indeed bad.
And I somehow think the people of Kosovo are not really innocent victims either. So maybe my initial post wasn't very wise. It's just that the region of south east Europe, mainly former Yugoslavia but also Turkey looks a bit too wild to me... neverending conflicts, religion, old traditions... exact opposite of the calm and beautiful Scandinavia which you also mentioned :-)
Ms. Rebel wrote: We all know what happened, we've been there. Lets stop the thing with washing hands because they are bloody as hell.Yes, you have been there, but also thousands of Serbs have been there, and now they are dead or refugees here in Serbia or somewhere else.
It's not about washing hands... Yes they are bloody, and I don't have problems to admit that, as some people in Serbia, but also in Croatia have!
So, my point is, you also have your "dark side", for example, I can't believe that people like Thompson (link still have support there. If I'm Croat I would be ashamed to have such man making concerts freely, and even with audience of more than 50.000 people!
Main problem in Balkan wars was, people on all sides thought that they are the ones which are the victims, and all the others are the bad ones, negation of fact that some people on their side also did bad things, and all of that 'cause of war propaganda! I can understand if you consider Ante Gotovina a hero, but you also have to accept that he did some war crimes. As some people in Serbia consider Ratko Mladic a hero, but there is more and more people accepting that he is also guilty for some war crimes.
What happened, happened, we can't turn time back, we have to accept COMPLETE truth, forget on all disagreements, and continue to make better future for all of us!
|First of all Thompson isn't killing anyone, he's just a singer. Don't like him btw. That thing that he creates isn't music for me. And second, Ante Gotovina isn't war criminal. You guys attacked us and we were only defending ourselves.
I don't want to argue with you on this one. We all know what happened, you guys wanted to erase Croats and people from Bosnia and Herzegovina from earth's face. War finished more than 10 years ago. Let's not talk about it in here. This is forum for Queens fans, fuck Serbia, fuck war, fuck Thompson.
|It doesn't fucking matter.
We had this ugly war, many good people were killed, and were I religious, I'd pray for each and every one of them equally, regardless of nationality, religion, political views and crimes they might have committed. War is ugly business, and it brings out the worst in people.
The whole mess is now over and we're given a chance: keep to our grudges and prolong the history of conflicts in the Balkans, or stop assigning the blame, start looking past the stereotypes and in this way lay the foundations for peace in the region.
Peace to us all.
|how many tickets are on sale for belgrade concert? capacity of belgrade arena is 18 000, am i right? so are they 18000 tickets for sale? or maybe less for security reasons. i'm interested cos i read somewhere there was 8000 people attending mark knopfler concert in the same arena which seems like a small number for that place|
