QUEEN legend Brian May and Broadway star Kerry Ellis are set to rock Sheffield City Hall next month.

Anthems The Tour features a unique fusion of rock and musical theatre anthems from shows such as Wicked, Chess and We Will Rock You.

The Queen guitarist and composer will perform new arrangements of a selection of the favourite songs that he has specially chosen to be performed by Kerry – and he will accompany her on guitar and vocals.

The concert on Friday, May 6, follows a series of acclaimed performances by Kerry and Brian, since stealing the show when they performed together on the Royal Variety Show in 2008.

Singer and actress Kerry has garnered a reputation as one of the West End and Broadway’s leading female stars – having performed in the likes of Wicked, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Oliver! and We Will Rock You.

On touring with Kerry, 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 world-wide star.

“The challenge was to develop songs and arrangements to allow that amazing voice to reach its true potential.” Ticket are £33.50 and £37.50; The Box Office is on 0114 2789789.
