Of course, we're the last people to raise an eyebrow at a hastily-worded phrase on the internet... but are BBC News really suggesting that the Queen wouldn't let Queen back into a royal park until they changed their lead singer?:

It will be the first time Queen has performed in Hyde Park for 29 years, with original singer Freddie Mercury now replaced by Paul Rodgers.

Not, of course, that Paul Rodgers has replaced Freddie... you can put on someone else's lurex catsuit, but that doesn't mean it'll fit. The current Queen are like The Golden Palace - a spin-off with everything except what made the thing worth watching in the first place.
