Kerry Ellis and Brian May have revealed that they will play two London shows before heading off on their Italian and East European tours.
The duo will premiere their One Voice concert at The Pheasantry in Chelsea on Tuesday 19th January 2016. The show will mark the reopening of The Pheasantry which is currently closed for refurbishment.
On 20th January Ellis and May will take to the stage at the Leicester Square Theatre, to perform as part of An Evening With Russ Ballard. The show will see Russ Ballard, who has written some of the most iconic rock songs of the past four decades, tell stories and answer questions from the audience whilst Ellis and May will acoustically perform some of his music.
May spotted Ellis when she was in My Fair Lady at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and invited her to audition for his Queen musical We Will Rock You. After originating the role of Meat in the show, Ellis and May have gone on to work together extensively, both in the studio and on world tours.
