10 dates at a venue that holds 5,000 people.

It's not exactly Elton John or Celine Dion.

The Colosseum at Caesars Palace where Elton and Celine performed is smaller, isn't it? I saw Queen + AL in 2012 at Hammersmith Apollo which is also 5000 people capacity, loved it downscaled!

Yes, but Celine Dion has done about 1000 shows there.

10 x 5000 is 50,000, that's basically two nights at the O2.

Hardly a residency!

Yes, I agree - hardly a residency! Maybe they just need an excuse for shopping and gambling in Las Vegas? :lol:

I think it was their way of coming back to the US/NA without traveling from coast to coast — let the people come to them because people come to Vegas from all over the USA and the world!

Meh.

"Residency in Vegas" always screams "has-beens" to me. Makes me feel as though all the people who call this incarnation of the band a karaoke act are on the money.

There's nothing has been about Vegas residencies anymore, loads of big name acts are wanting to play there now, it's big money aside from anything else, and good exposure.

Residency is touring without all the hassles of touring - great for the band from a financial and health point of view, great for the audience to see them in a small venue, and pretty much guaranteed sell outs due to holiday makers taking in the shows at inflated prices. Bit of a 'no brainer', and why Elton, Celine, Def Leppard, GnR and more have all done it.

Now....when's the UK run at Brixton Academy or Hammersmith?!!!

No. I think that used to be the case; but Vegas has been changing that image for a little while now - it is no longer seen as a place for the has-beens at all.

Queen are right to do this now, a couple of months before the film, so the trailer will probably be shown before each show - even more publicity stateside. It's a win win.
