Rock Goddess Kerry Ellis is teaming up with Queen’s legendary guitarist Brian May again for a stunning candlelit, acoustic show; The Born Free Tour.
After the phenomenal success of the sell-out charity show, Anthems: The Concert, at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May 2011, Their UK tour of Anthems: The Tour and the release of Kerry & Brian’s single Defying Gravity, Kerry & Brian will now be taking their majestic brand new acoustic show on the road across the UK throughout November 2012.
The Born Free Tour promises to impress and entertain audiences with its stunning fusion of Kerry Ellis’s beautiful voice and Brian May’s awe-inspiring guitar performances – all in support of the world famous Born Free Foundation.
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 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.
