The artistic duo recently released “One Voice”, written by Ruth Moody, co-founder of the Wailin’ Jennys. Said Brian May on

“This track is Art for Art’s sake. To me, it’s something I’m already proud of, with a magnificent vocal performance by Kerry Ellis, but also it has a crystal clear human message – You have a voice … your voice can make a difference.”

The Brian May & Kerry Ellis project was born after the meeting of the two artists during the auditions for the debut of “We Will Rock You – the Musical” in London, where Kerry played the original role as Meat. Brian May produced her studio album “Anthems” in 2010, followed by the “Anthems Tour” in 2011. This was followed by the “Born Free Tour”, which was a series of intimate, acoustic shows performed by candlelight, with the aim of raising awareness of their work for the Born Free Foundation. Ellis and May released a live album from the first leg of the “Born Free Tour” in 2013, entitled “Acoustic by Candlelight”.

Brian May, who has just finished a tour with Queen + Adam Lambert in South America, says:

“I am delighted to be returning to Eastern Europe, where I have performed so many times since 1986. This will be a sort of 30th anniversary for me.”

The concert will include classic hits from legendary rock artists, including Queen and the Beatles. Tickets will go on sale on
THURSDAY 8 OCTOBER at 10am CET (9 UK, 11 EET).
