QUEEN with Adam Lambert are set to rock Sonisphere 2012 at Knebworth, the location of the last Queen concert with Freddie Mercury at the helm.
25 years after the legendary Freddie Mercury rocked at Knebworth in August 1986, Queen with Adam Lambert are returning to Knebworth, this time headlining the second day at Sonisphere 2012. Adam Lambert is an American Idol participant who performed “We are the Champions” with Brian May and Roger Taylor in May 2009 and rumors have been mentioned and tweeted ever since, that a collaboration would take place between Lambert and Queen – today is the day that this is true.
The 2012 Queen performance will take place at Knebworth Park, Stevenage, on Saturday July 7.
In 1986, the Wembley shows were supposed to be the final concerts of the ‘Kind of Magic’ tour, but due to demand an extra date at Knebworth was set up. Not everyone was sure that it would sell out, management asked the band ‘are you sure it will sell’ …. Queen went on to draw a record crowd of over 120,000, their biggest ever UK concert audience.
Now Queen fans get to see Queen perform at Knebworth!!
