I don't think Wembley (Stadium) would be difficult to sell out. That's three shows and what? 45,000 tickets or so sold for 3 London shows within a few days of each other. I guess some of those will be the same people going to all three shows but those people can't make up *that* many sales..?

Surely, if the film is a hit, the only place left to go for a subsequent tour is a stadium/festival run. Maybe in pure economic terms it makes more sense to stick with arenas, but in terms of a career goal and Queen's legacy, they have to play big outdoors shows to go out on a high.

Even in cities like Sydney, maybe even LA, if they are playing fewer shows on a tour, they could play a stadium gig with 85 - 90% tickets sold, even if the economics of touring make this unlikely.

I think it would be difficult. I don't want to get slammed for saying this, but I hope Q+AL never plays Wembley Stadium. I know the original Wembley Stadium is no more, but even so I can't help but think of Live Aid and the Freddie Tribute when I think about W.S. Q+AL doesn't have to try to do to everything Brian and Roger did with Freddie. I'd rather them perform at the O2 and W.A. I'd actually be surprised if those venues managed to be sold out completely.
I remember when Q+AL were supposed to play Knebworth and Sonisphere a few years back. That gave me an unsettled feeling because we Queen fans know the history of Freddie's last show.

Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

"So far, these three London shows are the only UK dates planned."

Nicely ambiguous - possibility of more UK shows? Not sure where they'd fit in though.

Really hoping they do add some more UK shows, anywhere north would be good.
