The Good, The Bad + The Queen To Close Legendary Venue

THE GOOD, THE BAD + THE QUEEN will be the last band to play at the Hammersmith Palais before the final curtain falls on the legendary London venue later this month (07). The DAMON ALBARN-fronted group will close the auditorium with a special concert to mark the occasion on 31 March. Other guests on the night include The Good The Bad + The Queen drummer TONY ALLEN's THE TONY ALLEN ORCHESTRA, with more acts to be added to the final line-up. The presence of the headliner's bassist, former CLASH star PAUL SIMONON, will make the event even more significant because the venue was immortalised in The Clash's 1978 single (WHITE MAN) IN HAMMERSMITH PALAIS. Hammersmith Palais has played host to gigs by U2, THE ROLLING STONES and the SEX PISTOLS during its 90-year history, but local councillors recently (22JAN07) approved proposals by developers to knock the venue down and build an office block and restaurant in its place.
