Hello swedish people!
Only one week left until Brian May and Roger Taylor comes to sweden!
Oh, my god i'm so excited! :D
Who am I going to meet at the concert?
And who are going to fail on queen?
Don't let it be you!
Well... I'm going. :)
However, I'm afraid there will be many empty seats in the arena next saturday. Supposedly there are at least 1500 tickets left.
You heard me, people.
There are at least 1500 tix left.
Isn't it tragic?
I wonder what the official stats will say in terms of the numbers of sold tickets for each show......
THAT will have a definite effect on whether a US tour happens or not. There's no way they can risk playing to half-empty venues with what it will cost to lug the band around the US.
Interesting times ahead.
That's exactly what I thought - they should have gone out and done a bunch of tiny venues in the UK as a start to the tour - maybe 3000 capacity maximum.
Generate the good vibe from the audiences.
Then get out there into Europe, doing slightly bigger venues - 8000 maximum capacity in France, Holland, Germany, Sweden, Italy and Hungary.
At the end of the tour do perhaps 5 HUGE arenas and then two outdoor festivals.
Get people gagging for more as opposed to "hoping" that seats will be taken and only finding that they are empty when you look from the stage.
That also gets along the grapevine via promotors and is not the best selling point in trying to convince American promotors to take the gamble on you.
