The first ever Knowsley Hall Music Festival was announced last Thursday with details of headliners The Who, Keane, The Zutons, The Coral, The View, Pete Wylie & the Mighty Wah + many more to play Liverpool’s biggest two day rock festival.

Tickets are now have reportedly sold over 10,000 tickets already and are currently averaging over 500 tickets per hour. Many of which are taking advantage of the £70 weekend tickets.

James Barton commented: “This is an amazing start and way beyond what we expected on the first day, this just proves how much Liverpool has been crying out for an event like this. And we’re really pleased that people are making a weekender of it and purchasing the weekend tickets.”

The Who also paid tribute at their recent press conference to Merseyside music fans, and were particularly excited about their upcoming gig at Knowsley Hall Music Festival.

According to Roger Daltrey, “Liverpool was the most memorable gig we played last year for me. The crowd was singing the songs louder than we were performing them, which was deafening. I can't wait to go back. It's one of the best audiences you can ever play to. It's a bit like the football. The fans in Liverpool sing the loudest."

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey also claimed that this would be their biggest and best tour yet “This chapter is over in July 2007 so if you want to catch the new Who at their most effective for twenty years, come and join us." Pete Townshend

This event is set to be history in the making, a unique experience not to be missed.
