Q+AL finished?

Postby Elessar » Fri Jul 27, 2012 1:21 pm

Does the closure of the Q+AL forum indicate that the collaboration is over, and there'll be no future tour?
If so, I think that's a shame. On the other hand, I'm not convinced a tour would be as successful as the Q+PR tours because I don't think the public has the same appetite that it had for Q+PR, so it's better to end after a handful of successful shows than to have an embarrassing tour to follow it up.

At the moment there are no plans for any future collaborations, thus closing the Q+AL forum. Obviously things could change in the future.

I still think they enjoyed it enough that they will do a few more dates but I don't think we'll ever see a full scale tour. I also don't think we'll get album either - a singular song for a soundtrack or something? Possible.

As there is so many upcoming Freddie releases in the near future, yea I hope Q+AL is done. I can accept more shows, just, but please no album or single/s.

I'd be surprised if they didn't book a handful of US and Canadian dates. 6 tops.

Was also orders from above that the Q+AL one was removed, so yeah I'd say it's finished and done with but as Si says, anything's possible I guess, none of us know anymore than you guys do on that side of things however.

That's really intriguing...I'd have thought that if they thought there was even a small chance of further shows, they're keep the forum open to keep people talking about it. I think you're probably right and it's completely over, which seems odd given Brian's comments on his soapbox! Maybe Lambert isn't keen?

Then again maybe it was decided that having a forum isn't a particularly helpful marketing tool on this occasion - there has been a lot of negativity (the same is true of Queen's Facebook page), and I guess given that first and foremost QOL is for marketing, they perhaps had a fairly low threshold for asking for the forum to be removed.

It's fun to speculate!

Actually we probably are due one! When was the last one? Mandela's 90th?
I thought they were actually good concerts, and nice to see Brian and Roger collaborate with various others on stage. Bring on a new 46664 concert!

I don't understand why they would collab with an American singer who is more famous here if they didn't have some thoughts or plans of taking the show to the States. I guess we'll see.

My thoughts exactly.

Is there anyone who knows how much Kiev raised btw?

Yes! No more records that they haven't released to not buy! No more concerts that I won't go to anyway. This is great news!
