Brian and Kerry - Klagenfurt
Brian and Kerry – Klagenfurt


8 Queen Hits, Beatles classics and children’s photos. Queen legend Brian May rocked on Monday (7, 15) with the acoustic show Born Free and singer Kerry Ellis Lake Wörth. WEGOTIT was live!

Sensational Queen show at the Wörthersee. Under the slogan Born Free – Acoustic and by Candelight and a duet with musical singer Brian May Kerry Ellis read the champions rise again yesterday in Klagenfurt. After the overloaded Queen bombast shows with Paul Rodgers (2008) and ridiculed interlude with casting singer Adam Lambert (2012) provided May now a epochal minimalist acoustic set around Queen delicacies such as ’39 or No One But You . And it was true classic Beatles ( Something ), Elvis ( Can not Help Falling in Love ) or Kansas ( Dust In The Wind).



Despite the unplugged slogan came the Queen rockers Queen Tie Your Mother Down and We Will Rock much to the delight of the 1,200 fan, using his legendary homemade Red Special guitar. Ellis, who excelled in the London Queen Muscial We Will Rock You, gave Queen standards like Somebody To Love and Crazy Little Thing Called Love a modern country touch and surprised with potential hit neo-material such as Born Free or The Kissing Me Song .

To The Way We Were they showed childrehood pictures of May and Ellis. At Last Horizon Brian May agreed during the sound check at the Blue Danube Waltz and even between he talked quite amiuing German: “They have good gesingt”

The highlight there was – to hear for the first time in Austria! – The 1982 classic Life Is Real with a Freddie Mercury video show. An event!
