We Will Rock You at Stevenage Day Brian Maybe says

The Show Must Go On was the message as a mayor strapped on an electric guitar with Queen rock legend ‘Brian May’ to give a boost to a major town event, rained off in June.

Stevenage Cllr John Lloyd went Radio Ga Ga with Bohemians guitarist Christopher Gregory on the steps of the Joy Ride platform in Town Square to promote Stevenage Day which was rescheduled to August 26 due to sodden conditions.

Back from a European tour, The Queen tribute act will bring A Kind Of Magic to the free event at King George V Playing Fields when they open the music stage at 1pm.

“In the year of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, it’s fitting that the UK’s best Queen tribute act should headline Stevenage Day,” Cllr Howard Burrell, leisure portfolio holder said.

“With The Bohemians bringing classic Queen anthems to the sound stage, a sizzling line-up of local performances, arena acts and hundreds of stalls, it’s set to be a Stevenage Day not to be missed.”
