Nine-hour jams keep many locked out of historic show...
ROBBIE WILLIAMS played the first of three historic shows in KNEBWORTH last night (August 1) – but thousands of fans didn’t make the gig as travel chaos lead to nine hours of traffic jams.
As 125,000 people headed towards the Knebworth Estate in Hertfordshire, tailbacks were reported along the A1 for miles. Such was the disruption, that some people were still in a mile-long jam as Williams was finishing off his set with ‘Angels’.
And the misery for concert-goers didn’t end when the star left the stage. It took some fans over five hours to get off the Knebworth site.
Those who did make it saw Williams work through a greatest hits set including ‘Let Me Entertain You’, ‘She’s The One’ and ‘Rock DJ’.
By the end of the weekend over 375,000 fans will have seen the gigs, the biggest in British musical history. Police report that today traffic is flowing much better towards the site.
