PRESS RELEASE: BRIAN MAY AND KERRY ELLIS CANCEL DECEMBER CON

Postby The__KingOfRhye » Fri Oct 21, 2016 12:44 pm

Well, damn, damn, and damn. :( I just hope Brian makes it through all this okay.....

Brian May and Kerry Ellis today announced with great regret the indefinite postponement of their December concert dates in the UK. May and Ellis were set to perform 11 ‘Candlelight Concerts’ in the three weeks leading up to Christmas. Apologizing to fans through a personal message posted on his official website, (http://www.brianmay.com) Queen’s Brian May explains that he is fighting ‘a persistent illness which is destroying my energy and my will’, and doesn’t feel confident to perform the shows to the standard expected.

May comments: “I’m gutted to have to pull out - I hate letting our loyal fans down. But the advice I have had is that I must take time off to heal, rather than go out on tour again and risk falling down on the job, which would be much worse.”

Kerry Ellis comments: "Brian is a dear friend of mine and obviously his health must come first. I was so looking forward to touring the UK again with Brian. I know so many of you had bought tickets for an early Christmas treat, and I am truly sorry that we are letting so many of you down. But we will be back next year for sure, with new music for you all to hear.”

A consolation for disappointed fans is a newly recorded studio album from May and Ellis, titled ‘Anthems II’, which is scheduled for release in March.

All tickets already purchased are fully refundable at point of purchase.

(hey, Anthems II coming out in March, I was wondering when....)

I wonder if it's his knee, or depression again? Whatever it is, I wish him well.

I am hoping that he will recover fully.
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

It sounds like depression, based on comments he made on his earlier soapbox post about 3D robots or something.

Hope he recovers soon. 2016 can fuck off if it thinks it can take Dr May from us.

Ah, yes.

Perish the thought - but I hope this isn't related to the cancer scare he had a few years back that he was sort of vague about.

I'll just say a big "hell yes" to that.
