Intimate gig with Queen guitarist at Leamington’s Assembly

QUEEN guitarist Brian May will play unplugged for singing star Kerry Ellis on a tour date at the Assembly in Leamington next month.

The two 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.

Beginning Monday November 5, Brian and Kerry are heading out on the road to present their Born Free Tour, a series of 11 intimate and totally acoustic shows performed under candlelight.

These concerts provide a chance to see Ellis and May close-up, and are being performed to 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, which are now in serious decline.

Having recorded both a large-scale production version and an acoustic version of Born Free, Brian and Kerry will release both versions on one single, with all proceeds going to the Foundation.

The Assembly gig will take place on Tuesday November 6 from 7pm and tickets cost £37.50.
