This would certainly not be the end (if they can help it). Just some concerts (I guess 10-15) strewn over a couple of weeks.
I just checked the Park Theater and their line-up:
Ricky Martin (12 dates), Cher (9 dates), Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga (no dates mentioned yet) are scheduled for this year so far. Not bad, I would say. And current artists. So all is fine. :)

I love me some Cher, but I wouldn't call her current. :lol:
I'm going by how legendary Queen's tours were years ago, somi can't help but feel Vegas would be a sad way to end things for Brian and Roger, so I'm hoping it won't be the end.

I wouldn't call Ricky Martin current either. I think his last US hit was almost 20 years ago. Hasn't Cher retired several times already? I guess they are paying her well enough to walk around on stage for an hour. Some friends of mine went to one of her shows back in the early 2000s and they said it was extremely short.

I get it, the Vegas runs are getting popular but they still seem a little cheesy to me.

QAL play where the promoters want them. They are consistently in the the top 20 touring acts. Playing Vegas has nothing to do with "ending" anything. A promoter says "play here", they go.

The film is going to be a massive promotional and ego boost and they'll tour again. When they do semi retire, I reckon they'll play a few stadiums for the fun of it.

There is no way in hell Lambert is ever gonna say no to any QAL concert. It's too much money compared to the alternatives and May and Taylor won't last forever.

I don't know how much demand they'll be to see them in Vegas, but I go every year or so, and generally there is a lot of demand for good shows. (I must confess being annoyed Britney had a night off last time I was staying in Planet Hollywood). The Cirque De Solei Michael Jackson show was 90-% full every night and it wasn't as good a show as QAL's present tour. Vegas visitors who know two or three Queen songs will want to go and see it, if it's got good reviews and big billboards.

Anyway, the big thing in Vegas is EDM. The DJs are king.

I saw an old article about that yesterday. Back in 2013 the DJs were getting paid 200k-300K a night.

The era of rock music is over. It was just a fleeting moment. Our band was the most talented and we had the best taste, but we'll all be dead soon and no one will remember. But, people will still know We Will Rock You and We are the Champions in two hundred years time, even if they won't get it that someone actually wrote them and they weren't just crowd chants.

Calvin Harris deserves his success, but the guy that wrote the lyrics to Killer Queen was a true genius.

He did an Instagram-live-story, were he was answering fan-questions on tuesday. His answer to a question about the residency in vegas was a secretly whispered "Maybe". It sounded, as if it's either in negotiation or already booked, but not ready to be announced.

Being in negotiations means „maybe“.
