NO KISS/QUEEN TOUR NEXT YEAR
It looks as though the rumoured KISS/QUEEN tour for the summer of 2009 will not happen. Austrian newspaper "Osterreich" is reporting that Queen have split with lead singer Paul Rodgers. The band played a show last Saturday in Rio de Janeiro and was the final show. The band appearently sold 12,000 copies in the US of it's last album "The Cosmo Rocks" and did disapointing numbers on Queen's last US jaunt (where ticket prices were among the highest of touring bands. Some ticket prices were as high as $200 for a standard seat in some markets.) and all US tour dates for 2009 have been shelved.
