television performance

ITV franchisees as the bulk of production tended to be produced in one area, which was at the expense of other areas. Another example was Granada Television's heavy presence in Manchester who claimed there was a lack of investment in Liverpool and over-emphasis on Manchester. In late 2004, after a successful live television performance, two of the four members of the British rock group Queen (Queen (band)) proposed a collaboration with Rodgers, in which he would sing lead vocals on a European tour. Rodgers thus joined Brian May and Roger Taylor (Roger Taylor (Queen drummer)) (former bassist John Deacon retired in the late 1990s), with the group billed as Queen + Paul Rodgers and they subsequently toured worldwide in 2005 and 2006. The participants clearly stated, including on Brian May's own website, "that Rodgers would be "featured with" Queen as: "Queen + Paul Rodgers", not replacing the late Freddie Mercury". The group subsequently released a live album with songs from Queen, Bad Company and Free, called ''Return of the Champions'', and a DVD of the same name. Both featured live recordings from their Sheffield Hallam FM Arena (Sheffield Arena) concert on 9 May 2005. The DVD features "Imagine (Imagine (song))" from Hyde Park (Hyde Park, London). "For one glorious summer" opined music critic Sean Michaels "we were all Paul Rodgers". WikiPedia:Sheffield Commons:Category:Sheffield

During the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Many innovations were developed locally, including crucible (crucible steel) and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population during the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield received its municipal charter in 1843, becoming the ''City of Sheffield'' in 1893. International competition in iron and steel caused a decline in traditional local industries during the 1970s and 1980s, coinciding with the collapse of coal mining in the area.

The 21st century has seen extensive redevelopment (Urban renewal) in Sheffield along with other British cities.
