There's a lot in the pipes in various states of completion:

  • The Act 1 vinyl release party from July 2011 was recorded and is intended for eventual DVD release.
  • The special Queen set from December 2010 in Nashville was recorded and is some way through the remixing process, although it's not clear how far along it got before touring resumed. Turbo Lover was overseeing the remixing.
  • The untitled covers album, a 15 or 16-track all covers album, currently projected for end of 2011. Alan Shacklock, producer of Act II, is returning for this album. Initial recording began February 2011. Drum tracks were completed May 1. Vocal tracking began May 14, 2011.
