Sun City Rockers Whinge All the Way to the Bank
Queen guitarist Brian May has hit out a British TV network for not broadcasting the group’s performance at Nelson Mandela’s recent 90th birthday concert in London. The band, along with vocalist Paul Rodgers, were the final act to take the stage at the gig in Hyde Park on Friday, performing a string of hits to the delighted crowd.
Can this really be the same Queen who angered anti-apartheid activists by breaking sanctions to perform lucrative concerts at Sun City in 1984? Frankly ITV has done the world a great service by not broadcasting Queen’s hypocritical posturing. I just hope Emmanual Jal made it on to the screen though. Did anyone see it?
