OK before I get flamed these are rumours until confirmed. My source is a friend of a friends brother who works for Phil McIntyre but is pretty low down the food chain!!

Sat June 23rd - Etihad Stadium Manchester
Weds June 27th - Hampden Park Glasgow
Fri June 29th - Wembley Stadium London
Sat June 30th - Wembley Stadium London

I was also told the likely support will be Bastille & Extreme

Like I say take these with a pinch of salt but heres hoping.

Hmm. Why suddenly support acts to be a part of it? I find that part strange as there was no support acts in the past tours.

Big open air stadium gigs usually have support acts, even Queen on the Magic tour and Hot Space had supports.

If these dates are real then Rich Tea's friends brothers friend might be looking for a new job on Tuesday morning when he returns to Phil McIntyre's office. Releasing dates from a secure organization is a major breach of trust for a employer but also could damage the promoter artist relationship too.

If they had Def Leppard and The Darkness as support that might be worth seeing..

Eekk, I forgot about the support acts of the past Queen tours.
I can see why Extreme would be wanted to open for the shows, that grabbed my attention right away, because I'm a big fan of theirs. If these shows do happen, could the join Brian and Roger for a song or two? That could be good. Gary can pull off a Queen song, IMO.

Eek!....

It's a good thing that Earl Gray didn't use his real name for Rich Tea.....otherwise that might create the necessary traces

well it could be done but somehow doubt it, they generated enough of an interest, but have they got the balls to do it

Brian wanted to do the Super Bowl half time show this year but they got passed over for a repeat of Justin Timberlake. I guess the NFL doesn’t want to hear WWRY/WATC played LIVE by two of the originals!

=================

If this is true and my underfeeling is right, these shows are probably the last ones we gonna see before Brian and Roger retire .

I seem to remember some quotes about the magic tour from 1986. Wembley stadium was planned to be their last shows, but due too the big demand of tickets and not able to held a 3rd show in wembley QP added Knebworth.

True! But I was thinking if this filters out from this site Phil McIntyre's office is not huge. . . .

I don't remember Brian saying anything about the Superbowl. What did he say about it? I know many Glamberts wanted to see Q+AL to do the half time show, and voted on a poll that meant fuck all.

Rumours are also high about a possible South American tour.

Brian sent a video to Freddie For A Day Brazil and finished it saying "See you soon".

Argentinian fans on Facebook seem to be almost sure about a tour after the Asian dates. They also report Peruvian rumours of a gig in May.

Hopes are really high!!! Bring it on!!!

Cheers,

I think the owner of the wegotit.at website is Thomas Zeidler, and he generally is a very good source for inside information about Queen.

Why dont they play WWRY/WATC for two hours this time?
That would be a real change on their setlist. Something new for Queen at last!

Or maybe they should play an mp3 while they leave and have a beer. Wow, a real change on their show!

Lambert has got a powerful voice so Id love to see them play Innuendo and MIH songs or even a new song, but you know... that is like waiting for a corpse to start talking.
