Brian May, legendary Queen guitarist, and Kerry Ellis will come to Dublin for a special acoustic show at The Olympia Theatre in June.

The concerts is part of the Born Free Tour with Brian May performing new arrangements of songs chosen to be sung by Kerry, accompanying her on both guitar and vocals.

Brian May says: “Kerry Ellis is now acknowledged as a phenomenon, equally at home in Musical Theatre and Rock. I was convinced from the moment we worked together on We Will Rock You nine years ago, that she was destined to be a worldwide star. The challenge was to develop songs and arrangements to allow that amazing voice to reach its true potential.”

The Born Free Tour follows a series of acclaimed performances by Kerry & Brian May together over the past few years. They stole the show when they performed together on the Royal Variety Show in 2008. They performed live together again at BBC Proms in the Park and at 2010’s The Night of 1000 Voices, and most recently, they opened the Remembrance Day concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

The concert will take place at The Olympia Theatre, on June 30th.
