The show is a fusion of rock and musical theatre anthems from shows including Wicked, Chess and We Will Rock You. Their 12-date tour starts on May 3 at the Philharmonic Hall.
Brian May said: “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.”
Anthems: The Tour follows a series of acclaimed performances by the duo, including the 2008 Royal Variety Show, BBC Proms in the Park and last year’s The Night of 1000 Voices. Most recently, they opened the Remembrance Day concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
