I'm getting too old to accept new tricks. Plus, I'm a Cancer and hate change. Well, am very uncomfortable with it anyway. It confuses me. lol.

Good luck to the new guy, I was thrilled to see Marc with Queen Extravaganza doing a one-off thing in California a week or so ago. Looks like another private gig we won't get footage of. IDK.

Anyway, I did comment on the warm fuzzies it gave me seeing them all together again.
I THINK this is all about providing the States with gigs. We want them and Queen Prod. isn't providing, so it's an open playing field for Marc.

Seems they've added some North American dates to the tour starting Sept.

It's a sad state of affairs - A few years back i would have JUMPED. BUT:

a. no Marc Martel
b. UK GREATEST HITS? That's basically what I get when watching QAL

They should tour News of the World or The Game (I'd love Queen II or Innuendo but I get having to at least have some (especially American) hits in there)

The Game would be awesome.

In spite of the newbies in the line up that are hard for me to accept, Brian Gresh being back in is brilliant! Average price of $35 U.S.A. for the States dates is quite fair and I WOULD jump at the chance to at least see FOD, Tyler and Brian, but they are not coming to Missouri and I absolutely cannot go anywhere so far it would be an overnight trip.

I was a little dismayed to see what looks like very small venues booked. As if they don't expect much.

Everybody, who wants to see them in the States should also take notice, that Tyler Warren won‘t be playing with QuEX in the first half of the tour. He is mentioned as drummer and musical director, but if you read the whole thing properly, you can see, that he will join them rather late. The dates collide with Queen+ Adam Lambert in Las Vegas. Tyler will be with QAL and join the Extravaganza afterwards.

Marc Martel confirms that he is still in the QE roster and may very well sing with the band again.
