Interesting! Been thinking they will do this, but in a few years if current trends continue.

yeah, cos they always have great stuff to tell everyone, such as The Cure playing the tent at R/L this year. :lol:

One day you might wake up to the fact that they're run by a lying pathetic moron who will kill his grannie to get your attention, and then serve her up up to you labelled as prime burger.

I would of thought that a human burger would get more attention than a prime one.

in all honesty i'm saying that in jest, but i really think it could happen, like you said if poor sales continue/another reason.

BBC haven't confirmed it, its according to what was on the queen site, which has since been taken down. Heard it on newsbeat about 6ish, they didn't confirm it and are still looking for more information.

that doesn't sound very professional of the BBC imo, surely just wait until the promoter announces it tomorrow. oh wells. Not sure what the BIG news is then?

Think of it from their point of view. If they are the first big media company to break the news and it turns out to be true, they can live up to the claim that they are the best of Britain. If it turns out to be false? Then they apologise and remind everyone that they took the claim from Queen's website so it isn't their fault.

Are you pointing out that the official annoncement hasn't been made and that it could still go ahead? Or are you saying there is additional news to that of the Soni announcement? Or is this just a Neil-troll?

This isn't exactly a big story. It is to us, but we're the core followers of a niche website. I don't think the BBC will see this as a noteworthy journalistic achievement.

I think you'd be surprised how many people hold interest in something like the cancellation of a major event. Although I can see where you're coming from.
