You know it kinda sucks for me and pther my age because I'm 15 and I haven't gotten to experience them. All I have is my iPod, and youtube and different websites. It's my dream to see Brian or Roger on stage. Or both. I would die if I ever got to see them live. But I understand if they do decide to put everything away. I love them and I'm still a huge fan.
Will they tour again?..
Why not? They are able to do it again. Both Brian and Roger rocked during the last tour.
Apart from that? Paul has just said: "I've left the door open if they want me back. At the end of the day, I felt that we made a lot of people happy" (that includes me).
If they do decide to hang up their boots, it would be nice if they at least do a farewell show (or a series of them) like in Hyde Park / East and West coast of the USA (like in 2005), Japan (and Oz of course!) etc etc
Can't really see a reason why they would not do another tour if not in 2010 then more likely 2011.I would have thought that with the release of "Absolute" they would have given it a big tour to push sales.Just hope that Brian is not dissapointed if it does not acheive the sales they were excpecting given they are not on the road plugging the album.Times have changed Queen are no longer masive like they were and it seems a bit odd not to give the album a big push.Mind you they can always blame the record company if things dont go as well as excpected.
Brian and Roger will continue to make appearances at WWRY productions, and they'll continue to make one-off appearances at other venues. I doubt they'll do another large-scale tour unless/until they find a new lead singer, and the only way I could see them coming back to North America on a large scale would be as support for Journey or Def Leppard on one of those two band's annual US tours.
Come to think of it, a Queen/Journey or Queen/Lep show would be awesome.
I'm still curious to see what Roger is up to with his solo stuff. He announced a long time back in that fan club video, he was doing stuff with it... and that he was recording new material. I haven't heard any official word on that project since his announcement... as for a tour... I could see it going either way... but Brian seems a bit preoccupied with the whole book/stereo photography thing, so IMO Roger would have to be the driving force that gets it all together.
Brian and Roger wnat differnet things, but I think they understand eachother well now and will continue to work together, Brian seems to wnat to devote more time to 'other' projects and I suspect Roger still wants the lime light on stage
There will be a meeting of minds in the middle somewhere, I don't think we will see massive tours ever again, but they will perform.
When they both decide enough is enough I am also sure 'Queen' will not bow out without a big send off...
I'd like to think so...but due to Brian's diverging interests (divergent from Queen projects), there will be a compromise. I wouldn't rule out more work w/ PR, nor would I rule out another tour (to what capacity I couldn't begin to wonder)...I just wish they would come back to the States...them not coming here w/ PR was a broken promise & it would have done wonders to make up for the shitty job their record company did w/ promoting the album.
