Brian May and Kerry Ellis will be Born Free at the Alban Arena in St Albans


LEGENDARY Queen guitarist Brian May will be appearing live at the Alban Arena in St Albans in November.

HAVING enjoyed countless number one hits and toured the world, Queen guitarist Brian May is something of an expert at performing live on stage.

May, Queen drummer Roger Taylor and American Idol finalist Adam Lambert were due to headline at Knebworth House in front of more than 50,000 fans this summer before the music festival was cancelled.

However, the guitar legend will be playing live in Hertfordshire next month in much more intimate surroundings.

Known as one of music’s most powerful players, May is going unplugged for a unique tour with acclaimed singing star Kerry Ellis.

Presenting a totally acoustic show performed under candlelight, the duo bring The Born Free Tour to the Alban Arena, in St Albans, on Monday, November 12 at 8pm.

The pair have enjoyed a hugely successful musical partnership in recent times, with Kerry earlier this year receiving a best solo performance award for Anthems, the show arranged and produced by May as a showcase for her talents which premiered at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Their special concert at the Alban Arena will provide fans a chance to see Ellis and May close-up.

It will also raise awareness of the work of the Born Free Foundation, the global organisation which works to protect and conserve threatened species, particularly Africa’s lions.

They will perform a collection of their own personal favourite songs, as well as new arrangements of some of those they have previously performed in concert and recorded together, sung by Kerry with Brian accompanying her on both guitar and vocals.

Tickets cost £37.50. Call the box office on 01727 844488 or book online at www.alban-arena.co.uk
