They still haven't - but what they did see were some pretty good impressions of the legendary bands.

For the first time Norwich's Eaton Park played host to Fake Festivals' nationwide tour, with a line-up including tributes to David Bowie, Oasis and The Stereophonics.

A Twitter user named RegLFC91 said: 'Queen followed by Oasis. Bury me here.'

On Wednesday it appeared the opening act would be unable to perform.

A post on the event's Facebook page said: 'Due to unforeseen circumstances, our fake Red Hot Chili Peppers (Really Hot Chili Peppers) won't be able to open the festival after all. They are so gutted, maybe next year fellas.

'Our fake Stereophonics (Stereotonics) have agreed to step in at last minute and open for you.'
