QUEEN Guitarist Growing Excited For Tour

Launch Radio Networks is reporting that QUEEN guitarist Brian May says he's growing more "excited" about the upcoming tour with FREE/BAD COMPANY vocalist Paul Rodgers as its start date draws closer. May told Britain's Uncut magazine, "As the tour approaches, it feels like my whole body and soul have been tipped upside down. It's now dawning on me that this huge ball is about to roll again. It's slightly more exciting than scary though." May also rejected criticisms leveled against him and drummer Roger Taylor for touring under the QUEEN moniker without the late Freddie Mercury or retired bassist John Deacon. "Almost my entire life has been lived amid a hail of bullets," he said. "As far as I'm concerned, it's nobody's business but ours. If you think you're gonna hate it, don't come."

The tour is billed as "QUEEN and Paul Rodgers."

The group will play their first show at Nelson Mandela's 46664 AIDS Awareness Concert on March 19 in South Africa. The tour starts in earnest on March 28 in London, England, and is expected to play in North America later this year.
