Stop at the Papp Laszlo Sports Arena in Budapest.
Rodgers, who stepped into the late Mercury’s basically unfillable shoes in 2004, recently told VH1 Classic Radio he and the band were through.
“We did a world tour, we did a second tour of Europe and the Far East and eastern Europe and a  studio album, and I think we’re kind of leaving it there gently,” Rodgers explained.
In other words, it looks like everyone involved decided to get out while the getting was good following the less-than-spectacular performance of last year’s The Cosmos Rocks.
Queen’s swan song with Rodgers will be the upcoming Queen + Paul Rodgers Live In Ukraine, a CD/DVD package.
Don’t feel too badly for Rodgers though, he has another reunion to attend: Bad Company is back and preparing to tour the U.S.
