Solo shows 186 plus the shows he did around Nov/Dec in the US. He would have had his latest album out a lot sooner if not for all the business BS he had to deal with and would likely have already toured it since he only did two months with B & R but everything got held up.Black Wings wrote: ↑Wed Jul 01, 2020 7:26 pmSocial Media was in its early days in the Q+PR era.

They weren't as successful with Paul so I doubt you could put just anyone on stage and have the same success.JLP wrote: ↑Wed Jul 01, 2020 7:08 pm
200 shows and his solo career has not taken off. Says it all. People are going to listen to and watch Queen songs. You could put anyone on stage with Brian and Roger and people would go. Lambert might be a good fit, even the best available but that does not mean people go, watch and then go home and buy his music.
Yea, good thing AL isn't trying to be Bieber or Swift, not that he ever could be at this stage and especially since he has put Q+AL first. Again, that was the choice he made and still has made. Go on, check the amount of shows he has done for Q+AL than his solo shows.
What makes you think they weren't successful with PR? Because it didn't last as long as Q+AL has, or it didn't fill as many seats for years on end?
In the US especially their shows with Paul weren't anywhere near full.
