ROCK ON !
HAVING SOLD OUT EXISTING TOUR
QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS
ANNOUNCE EXTRA UK CONCERTS
Having sold out their forthcoming autumn tour within only hours of going on sale, Queen + Paul Rodgers will now play an extra four UK concert dates in October and November, including a second night at London 02.
The Cosmos Rock tour will now include Sheffield Arena (October 19), Newcastle Arena (November 4), Manchester Arena (November 5) and a return to London 02 on November 7.
The band's tour dates will coincide with the release of the first album recorded by Queen and Paul Rodgers, the first new studio work from Queen for over 13 years.
These added November dates will close the band's extensive eight week European tour, before they move on to make a much anticipated return to Latin America which Queen historically conquered in the mid-eighties.
The band's phenomenal impact on Argentina and Brazil has never subsided: over recent weeks Queen have held tight onto the No 1 spot on the Brazil album charts with a specially compiled greatest hits Collection.
"I never thought I would be doing this again," said Brian May talking about Queen and Paul Rodgers' first tour in 2005. "I was always against the idea of putting someone in there trying to impersonate Freddie in any way. Then suddenly I'm looking at this guy who doesn't in any sense try to take the place of Freddie. He comes from his own place musically and we are able to reinterpret these songs with someone who understands us - the songs mean something new."
