Serious discussion about the band known as QUEEN.

I mean actual Queen in their prime, but in 2017 (like I said, this is a hypothetical and slightly ridiculous measure).
I’ve seen the Stones twice - on the first occasion I bought a ticket on eBay well below face value. The second time I had a spare pair and sold them for way below face value, and that was for an arena show.

If the Stones started announcing shows at Wembley, ticket-buyers would dry up within 7 or 8 shows. If they could magically put 1986 Queen back on stage at Wembley, I reckon they could sell out an entire summer.

I would very much doubt it.

half the crowd would be the same people every night.
Well, if they could magically put the Beatles on from circa 69 we would be selling tickets for a lot longer.

Makes me wonder how well the touts who'd bought up all the tickets for Michael Jackson's O2 gigs did at getting their money back. Would have been a bit awkward claiming a refund not using the same name or address on a couple of hundred (thousand, even) tickets.
