April 25th : Update – Tickets for the two Queen + Adam Lambert concerts at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo on July 11th & 12th have both SOLD OUT. Brian May has hinted at the possibility of a third date being added to the bill.

 

Despite the sudden cancellation of the Sonisphere Concert and with Queen set to headline with singer Adam Lambert at Knebworth, Queen have announced they are to go ahead with not just one but two Queen UK concert appearances this summer.

Queen and Lambert will perform at 2 concerts at London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo over two nights, July 11/12 2012. Queen also promised to endeavour to give priority booking to all fans who had held tickets for their Knebworth Sonisphere concert.

Queens Hammersmith Tickets will go on sale this week. Tickets for Queens HMV Hammersmith Appollo concerts will be sold first to Queen fan club members, Queen online subscribers and Sonisphere Knebworth ticket holders and then on general sale.

A bit of Queen Hammersmith History

HMV Hammersmith Appollo was originally known as the Hammersmith Odeon. The Hammersmith Odeon venue was the scene of 4 sold out Queen concerts in late November/early December 1975 (at the height of the Bohemian Rhapsody release). Hammersmith Odeon was also the venue for a special Christmas Eve show and again in December 1979 when they played the opening night of a series of UNICEF concerts for the people of Kampuchea.

Amongst Queen fans, the Hammersmith Odeon shows continue to be regarded as some of Queen’s most exceptional concerts.

Sonisphere cancelled as Queen return is cut short

Sonisphere cancelled as Queen return is cut short

Sonisphere cancelled – Queen’s return is sadly cut short

Queen were due to play Knebworth at the Sonisphere festival but the Sonisphere festival has been cancelled.

The sonisphere organisers said “It is with very heavy hearts and much regret that we announce the cancellation of Sonisphere Knebworth 2012. Putting the festival together in what is proving to be a very challenging year … unfortunately circumstances have dictated that we would be unable to run the festival to a standard that both the artists and that Sonisphere’s audience would rightly expect.

Ticket holders will automatically receive a full refund direct from their ticket agents.

What Queen will do next is unknown – Queen fans were anticipating a return to Knebworth which was the location of the very last Queen concert with Freddie . Would they do a full Queen concert with Adam Lambert at Knebworth?

Lets wait and see what happens – With Queen, you never know….

The Queen Character Test Back on Line

Back in 2012 I found out that the Queen Character Test on my Queen Fan site had stopped working.  So after spending a few hours reprogramming it this evening, I was delighted that the Queen Character test was now back up and running. However, in 2016 I moved servers to shanemcdonald.ie as a result I had to re-program and re-edit every page on the site. The test basically allowed you to find Which member of Queen are you – and was very popular.

The Old Queen Character Test was at  http://queen.shanemcdonald.org/queen-character.html however this link is no longer valid as the whole site was moved to the new server on shanemcdonald.ie

Please bear with me while I re-program the new Queen Character Test on the new servers and I will announce the details once it is up and running.
If you didn’t know, the Queen Character test basically allowed you to find out Which Queen Member are you?

Feel free to comment and say which Queen member you think you are and if you feel it reflects who you are !!

Don’t forget to Follow me on Twitter @shanesqueensite and let me know Which member of Queen are you ?!
