On June 30th 1990, a concert was staged in Knebworth House’s grounds to raise funds for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and the Brit School for Performing Arts. It has since been heralded as the “best British rock concert of all time”. The concert featured an extraordinary line-up including Genesis, Phil Collins, Robert Plant, Status Quo, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Cliff Richard & The Shadows, Dire Straits and Tears For Fears. The line-up was drawn entirely from acts that had been recipients of the prestigious Silver Clef Award presented annually by Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy for outstanding services to the British Music Industry. All the artists supported the charity by performing for free.
