Excited Brian May posts ‘spoiler’ video of ‘new toy’ at Queen concert | Music | Entertainment
Brian enthusiastically blogged regular updates on the band’s return to touring all week. The first of the aborted Queen + Adam Lambert World Tour shows took place in Belfast on Friday, followed by another last night. The legendary guitarist shared how elated and exhausted the “battle-scarred” band was to be back on stage, as well as their joy at the raving reactions from the crowd. Tonight he also shared a rather special teaser for a brand new feature on the show – something he’s wanted for years.
Few if any bands are bigger showmen than Queen and Brian also revealed the band are pushing their limits further than ever on the newly rebooted tour.
Yesterday he admitted it could mean sometimes not everything is perfect: “It won’t be ‘perfect’.”
However, tonight he could no longer contain his excitement or keep his fabulous new toy a secret.
Yes, it actually looks like a sparkling ball of fire is shooting out of the end of his guitar.
Brian added: “Well now our amazing production team has given me a beautiful device to make that wish come true.
“So it now gives me a great sense of satisfaction to reach this point in this song, and to go there with the device in my hands, and see (and hear) the happiness it generates in our beloved audience!!! I think it really makes me play better too – ha ha!”
The rock icon also shared his joy as he received gifts from fans, including a beautiful illustration of a guitar inscribed and framed.
Following the Belfast dates this weekend, the Queen + Adam Lambert tour will continue across the UK, heading to Manchester’s AO Arena on May 30 and 31, followed by Glasgow’s OVO Hydro on May 2. and June 3.
The band will begin a series of shows in London on June 5, 6, 8 and 9 at the O2 Arena, followed by a break at Birmingham Utilita Arena on June 11 and 12, before returning to The O2 London on June 14, 15. 17, 18, 20 and 21.
