So how official is this. The number of tickets for a sellout per venue appears to be based on what other artist have sold, not what the actual venue capacity is. Some shows, depending on production can deminish the number of seats available. For instance a 60x40ft stage takes up less space than a 70x45ft stage with an 80ft run way and a 20x20 ft stage B stage. Also front of house sound and lighting desks need space which is different with every show.

Looks to me as though venues have been putting more seats on sale - for instance, on the seating map available through the tour site, Toronto has only a handful of seats available for first sale (less than 100) other than the seats to the side/behind the stage which they've put out later - if not for those, the venue would probably be sold out, or very close to it.

Edited to add: the max seats number given for Toronto was for Adele, so I'm guessing that's the venue's absolute max.

One of these days I'm going to ask him if they called on the telephone or sent an email.

Can you imagine answering the telephone with Queen (possibly Roger) on the other end going "Hey Tyler, you busy for the coming year? How'd you like to do a world tour with us?


I'll never forget Spike relating a similar question posed to him back in the 80's, which he speaks of on one of the DVD's. Spike says he said to himself "Be careful, Spikey, this is important!"

If it came by email, which I kind of doubt something that important would be left to email, man, I'd have a screen shot of it and framed. Dozens of them, just in case.

If someone had told this 8 year old boy that someday he'd be sharing a stage with Roger and Brian themselves for a whole year......well. it's such a cool freaking thing to happen to him, and no one could do it better.

US and Europe/UK tours now grossing over $62m. Nice.

Queen's Award for Exports, anyone?

What kind of percentage actually ends up going to the artists?

No. Sadly.

When I first read that they will be in K.C., which is a little more than 5 hours away from me, my male companion who finally CAN afford to pay his own way, said NO!! He isn't going.

I am too sick to go alone. I thought about my daughter, but I would have to pay for her.

I have little savings from my disability for specific emergencies such as home and car, and vet and burial for my old arab mare with colon cancer....well, I just can't come up with that much money.

The only seats I could scrape enough for are the nose bleed seats but me in stage 4 COPD, I can't breathe well enough to climb steps. I'd have to be on the floor.

I want so badly to see Tyler playing with them but it's just not to be. Hopefully someone will make some videos, though it would have to be once they're in the UK, because these huge stadiums they're playing here won't allow that.

The last time they toured North America in 2014 there were fans taping close up for all of the shows! If the woman who calls herself TALVIDS is there she does an awesome job!

I called for tickets the exact moment they went on sale but got fooled by the seating chart and won't be as close to the stage as I hoped. Sometimes being further away gives you a better overall view of the spectacular lighting effects!

If you are a bit further back, you also get to see and be a part of all the audience participation - right at the front you miss out on that. While it's great to be able to see what's on stage close-up, being in the middle of thousands of people singing and clapping along is special too.

I was fascinated by the beautiful lasers hitting the back of the United Center in Chicago in 2014 because I was sitting halfway up on the side of the arena!

Anybody get to take advantage of the $20 tickets? A few of the US dates had tickets for $20 recently.
