Wembley Stadium has announced plans to host its biggest ever battle as 25 legendary music and sporting events go head to head to be crowned the stadium’s ‘greatest ever’. In the ultimate clash of the titans rock n’ roll royalty in the form of Queen, the Rolling Stones and Foo Fighters find themselves up against footballing legends Stuart Pearce and Geoff Hurst with wildcards Evel Knievel and Martin Offiah battling for fan votes and the coveted title.

Playing back to back gigs at Wembley in 2008, Dave Grohl overwhelmed with emotion told Foo Fighters fans on the last night that it was “the greatest day of his life” and felt as if he had 86,000 backing singers performing with him. No stranger to getting the best out of the Wembley crowd Queen and the late Freddie Mercury have also been shortlisted for their outstanding performances at Wembley in 1986 and 1985 as part of Live Aid which has arguably been remembered as the most iconic moment in music history.
