Queen to Rock Knebworth - 25 years on!

I'm excited I'll be honest with you!

A good friend of mine Robin Whitmore called me this evening to tell me that Queen are to headline the Saturday at the 3-day Sonisphere in early July - at KNEBWORTH!

Queen's final live gig with Freddie Mercury was at Knebworth in front of some 120,000 fans on August 9th 1986 - Robin was there! I wasn't even 4 at the time so the chance to see Freddie live passed me by but an opportunity to see Brian May and Roger Taylor live at that holy grail of a Queen venue is one that I will not let go!

I've seen them both at a gig in the CIA a few years back with Robin and we've both also attended a Queen International Fan Club convention! But then we are both members of the International Queen Fan Club so it's very much allowed!

We can purchase up to 6 tickets and with Queen fan club members getting first refusal before the tickets go on general sale on Thursday, Robin and I are keen to snap them up in the next 24 hours! If any other fans are keen to attend, contact me immediately!

  1. If you do go make sure you go see Flogging Molly earlier in the day. I saw them in Cardiff late last year, brilliant fun.
