Learn from this Brian and Roger! Adam Lambert was never going to perform in front of a rock and metal crowd. If you want a crowd get Paul Rodgers back. Yes, he appeals to hard rockers like your good selves, is credible, is not a c lebrity and you have already done two tours and and album with him. It really isn't rocket science chaps!

It is with very heavy hearts and much regret that we announce the cancellation of Sonisphere Knebworth 2012.  There was an assortment of reasons that went into the decision, but we'll only touch a couple issues.  First, the financial costs to put on a show of this magnitude put too much strain on the legacy of the band.  Second, the legacy of the band does not want to play songs like More Of That Jazz, Love With My Car, or B Sides from The Game.  Additionally, the legacy of the band simply does not want to play other non-Queen songs.  Finally, the legacy of the band finds it much easier to re-record parts and re-issue cash generators than to actually get up and physically perform.  Apologies to Anita.

Sincerely QPL

Why you looking for integrity in an industry where none exists?
