this is the funniest bit of queen-related news ever
so in essence, non-queen, with nonentity singer, at non-event cancelled

still look on the bright side, some poor fucker hasn't got to clean out 20,000 chemical toilets

Haha!
I hope it's down to poor ticket sales and they get the message that no one's interested in Lambert.

well 2/3 rds of it were doomed from the get-go
doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that queen minus freddie plus adam lambert and kiss minus ace/peter or plus ace/peter for that matter
is not the greatest ticket seller ever..even the touts/scalpers couldn't be arsed
perhaps now, brian, roger, gene and paul will all retire (finally) with whatever modicum of self-respect remains

KISS have been doing VERY well w/o Ace and Peter for some time now.

michael, you know shit. FACT: the two QPR tours sold out in the uk and the outside gig at hyde park. i can't speak for FNM but KISS headlined Download here in England in 2008 and two years ago sold out an arena tour. you are in the minority. REAL queen fans (i.e. from 70's and 80's) don't want adam lambert and have informed Brian and Roger of this, by not buying tickets. Hip new Queen fans (those not old enough to have seen freddie) have done the same too.

At the time of writing it is uncertain if the whole event is cancelled or just the saturday which is when queen and twatface lambert were set to play. you are just a kid and know fuck all like your idiotic friend jazzy mercois so jog on..

KISS are better with Eric and Tommy than with Peter or Ace. Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr were better than Ace and Peter too.

In 2010 KISS performed their most successful, longest U.K./European tour so far.

Had nothing to do with Peter and Ace.

Know what you're talking about next time, dumbass.

Brian, Roger, Gene, and Paul will continue to do whatever they want to do.

KISS will be touring in the U.K./Europe next year on their "Monster" world tour.

You can piss off.

Eric Carr/Bruce Kulick

Bruce Kulick/Eric Singer

Eric Singer/Tommy Thayer


All better than Peter Criss/Ace Frehley.

So, this Sonisphere thing was just a big marketing strategy for the Queen Extravaganza, huh?

Cheers,

"We are disappointed to hear of the cancellation of the Sonisphere Festivals as we were very much looking forward to performing with Adam Lambert and particularly as the venue was Knebworth, our last stand with Freddie. We apologise for the disappointment to all those who were looking forward to seeing us. We are working to see if we can redress the situation at some other venue."

Roger Taylor and Brian May
