That's what I'm hearing from folks who know somebody who knows somebody who's heard of somebody's proctologist. Seriously though.....can we get some hints?

I was hoping for a 1977 concert release.. Earl's Court or Houston.
40th anniversary in 2017. By the way, what was the point of filming those two concerts, if
it was going to be put on hold for 40 years ? What a waste and lost opportunity.. :o

They probably wonder what the point is. The week after release, Greatest Hits will be out selling whatever they put out anyway.

Must be a while since we've not had a 'Christmas market' release though. I'm quite happy for them to carry on with 40th anniversary live concert releases though, even though we didn't get on last year.

I kinda thought that vinyl reissues of GH1 & GH2 were the xmas items - Something for the vinyl fans.

Wouldn't be surprised if we get a Q+AL release this year however.

The official Freddie Facebook and Twitter feeds yesterday posted a photo of the 'Mr Bad Guy' LP inner sleeve and vinyl, with a sentence/question of "What do you think? Time for a re-issue?"

Presumably therefore the Freddie solo offering this year will be a remastered 'Mr Bad Guy' out on 180g and/or coloured vinyl, perhaps with an extra LP of 'best of' Freddie solo stuff?

I saw that too and thought that same thing.... Testing the waters perhaps? Was the 'messenger of the gods' new mastering or was they the ones done when the solo box came out? There would only be a handful of songs that would be need to be done to finish the 'Mr Mad Guy' period off.

When I said 'we didn't have one last year' I was meaning a live 40th anniversary release (like we had the previous two years). Although I'm not sure the GH re-releases were what I'd call a Christmas market release either (although I did see them in supermarkets to be fair)

With regards to Mr Bad Guy...I'm not sure if was a hint of things to come. Think it was just something the FM page posted for the sake.of posting something. I don't think we need annual Freddie releases when everything has already been released and re-released multiple times and there wasn't that much stuff to begin with in the first place.

I'm hoping for a "Live Killers"-related box but instead they'll release something featuring Lamberace.

I'm pretty sure their main priority at the moment is the biopic. They'll concentrate on that, get it in the past tense, and then maybe look at potential market windows. One thing's for sure, they probably have half a dozen things sat on the burner.

You would think they'd want to have a release to go along with the new tour

From what I gather from sources which will remain nameless, THAT was the original plan for last year, but in typical Queen fashion, it all changed and we got the Singles Collection instead.
I gather you all noticed that some of the MBG tracks on the release were newly remastered and sound superb.....?

Whether the original Barcelona album remastered was part of the original plan or not, I can't remember.
