'The Cosmos Rocks' Released In USA And CA 10/28/2008

The first Queen + Paul Rodgers studio album was finally released in the USA and Canada Tuesday, October 28, 2008. 'The Cosmos Rocks' was released in the UK and the rest of the world on September 15, 2008.

Now we North Americans can get our very own copy and listen to the whole eclectic assortment of music that is included in this much anticipated creation. Until now, we've only rarely even gotten to hear the album's first two singles "Say It's Not True" and "C-lebrity", on US radio stations anyway. Brian May, Roger Taylor and Paul Rodgers wrote all the songs and played all the instruments recorded on this album. Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins added background vocals to "C-lebrity".

Not only did Europe get to buy the new album a month and a half before us, but they've already experienced the new music live in concert. The European Tour officially started September 16, 2008, the day after the UK / Rest Of The World album release. The guys also did an AIDS benefit concert in Kharkov (a.k.a. known as Kharkiv), Ukraine on September 12th, after doing a short rehearsal show near London, England for various media on September 3rd. Queen + Paul Rodgers will probably tour the US and Canada at some point, but when and how many shows? I'm guessing the answer will depend on the amount of interest shown here via sales of the new CD, sales of the previous live CD's and DVD's, and the amont of radio airplay that the band gets here. Venue availability will also play a part in where and when.

Hey, I'll use any excuse to post Queen and/or Queen + Paul Rodgers videos. With all the Queen related things included on this blog, it's pretty obvious that they are my favorite. There's so much more interesting stuff (to me), but there just isn't enough time to put it all up. Got to spread the attention around somewhat. Like your wonderful blog, this place is about more than one subject.
