OK ! Just one more bit of New Orleans nostalgia. And - yes - I do know where this was ... but I’m not telling ...yet !! Bri

brianmayforreal

I had to find the spot where that lovely old group photo was taken. We did ! It’s at Royal and Toulouse, in New Orleans French Quarter - and although a few things have changed, a lot of the ancient features are still there. The lamp post has been extended upwards - presumably to accommodate that less-than-pretty piece of ‘No Right Turn’ signage - and I seem to have lost my mates ! But ... well, it was a nice feeling to get back there. Now ... how about those other memories. ! Where’s Peaches ?!! Aaaah ... it’s 2019. How did that happen ..? 💥💥💥💥 BIG THANKS to my dear friend Kimberley Barsana for sending me this great antique pic and starting a nice quest ! And thanks to Liam Wheatley who took my picture here, and Zoe Smith who led the search party ! The chap in the background in the picture from 1980 is Walter Versen - who was, for a number of years, my security guard and friend in those days. We are still pals. 💥💥💥💥 And, by the way, if you’re interested in this stuff, there are lots more vintage pictures and stories in my book —— QUEEN in 3-D. Cheers - Bri

Hello New Orleans ! We’ve missed you. And that ain’t no lie. Let’s rock !!! Bri

brianmayforreal

Mmmmm ... a barbecue smells good, don’t it ?! Then I go and have a look. How does this make you feel, swiping on this ? Hungry ? Happy ? Sad ? What else ? Maybe nothing ? Do you think you feel differently than you might have done 5 years ago ? 10 years ago ? I’ll be interested to see what you say, folks. Cheers - Bri

brianmayforreal

Hello TAMPA ! - what a great welcome ! Still trying to figure out the syringe thing - but these things taste pretty good ! It’s gonna be a great night ! Bri

My life behind the scenes tonight in the BB&T Center Florida. It was busy !! We call this activity “meet-and-greets”. It’s generally the only window of opportunity I get to catch up with friends as we pass through a city on tour. I do it pre-show because it takes me too long to ‘come down’ after the show. So here I am introducing some friends to the ‘Table-top Selfie’ idea (at the behest of @lunawest who appears in this vid. Also appearing is Prof Dante Loretta - seen in detail the next pic if you swipe. Dante is the boss of the NASA OSIRIS REx mission which at present has a space probe parked beside the (relatively) near-Earth asteroid named BENNU. They are currently looking for a suitable place to make a landing on its surface. This is ... very difficult ! My pal Claudia and I have been contributing to the search by supplying 3-D renderings of potential sites. So we are honorary working members of Dante’s team. Nice welcome poster in the corridor backstage. Then I met THE ENTIRE CAST of our amazing ship-born production of We Will Rock You, led by my dear old (but still young!) friend Amanda Coutts as Scaramouche. Great to meet you guys - wishing you luck in you Life on the Ocean Wave - flying the WWRY flag. So then I played a show !!! Bri 💥💥💥💥 @team stereoscopy will notice there is an experimental 3-D overlap in the middle of this pic if you half-swipe !

brianmayforreal

Hey beautiful people of the Mansfield Xfinity Center !!! THANK YOU ! That was potentially the hardest gig on the tour technically to pull off - but it turned into probably the most memorable - and I felt truly inspired. Beautiful ! These pictures are us and you tonight in perfect harmony. Bless ya ! Nobody in the world could ask for a better audience. New England rocks with old England !! Respects ! Bri

This is Fa - one of the Magnificent Seven rescuee fox cubs now enjoying a life in the sun - thanks to @anneatsaveme and the team at Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue - otherwise known as Save-Me HQ ! These little ones - not so little any more - are now free to roam, but happy to hang for now where they know it’s safe. Love ‘em. Bri 💥💥💥💥 yes - Fa dug that hole - that’s why he’s tired ! Just practisin’, ready for the day when he’ll be raisin’ a family of his own. ... Bri

Some more great shots from our second night at the LA Forum - all courtesy of the incredible Nuno Bettencourt - in cahoots with the unbelievable Steve Vai ! Thanks guys ! Bri

brianmayforreal

Thanks Los Angeles for a wonderful warm reception at the Forum. People often say to us “Oooh ... the LA audience is tough - they’re not easily impressed”. But that has never been our experience. To us, Los Angeles is like a home run. The energy Of the Forum brings out the best in us, and I always go home feeling fulfilled. This time was no exception. And perhaps more emotional than ever. And on the second night it was great to share that serendipitous moment for ‘39, at the ‘live’ 50 year re-run moment when Armstrong and Aldrin were actually on the Moon. Who would have thought that such a coincidence could occur ! We were blessed !! Ah ... but astronomers don’t believe in miracles - right ?!!! Bri

brianmayforreal

Them boys !!! Both virtuosos with skills beyond my wildest dreams. Both deeply gracious, caring and generous human beings. Proud to call them my buddies. @stevevaihimself @nunobettencourtofficial #genius — Bri

brianmayforreal

This picture is going to keep me smiling warmly for a long time to come !! These two American giants of Rock Guitar getting excited about a spindly kid from Feltham, England, means the world to me. Love you guys !!! @stevevaihimself @nunobettencourtofficial @theforum 2nd night @officialqueenmusic #brianmay !!! — Bri

brianmayforreal

It’s a day to salute these heroes - Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, and all the lesser-known heroes who played their part in the Space Race - culminating in Humanity’s first foot in another World, this day, 50 years ago. But most of all - these three guys, whose names will live forever. I salute !! Bri

brianmayforreal

An amazing day and night ! Thanks Adam for posting this. Thanks to all my family and dear pals for the Birthday wishes. Thanks ALL you beauties in the fabulous LA Forum tonight for singing to me - and with me ... and being a truly wonderful audience. OK ! Deep breath !! Second Forum show tomorrow ! Grateful ! Bri X

brianmayforreal

!!! I hope this isn’t sacrilege !!! Thanks guys ! Bri

Driving in to DEFINITELY one of my favourite venues in the entire world - what a treat for my birthday - and - guys, you pulled out all the stops ! Bless ya, Forum peeps ! Bri

brianmayforreal

I’m overwhelmed with wonderful birthday messages today. Wish I could put them ALL up here. This made me very emotional - bless ya Steve. I’m a very lucky chap. And thanks to all of you who have done me so proud on twitter and IG and stuff - I’m very touched. Bri

brianmayforreal

Tour Ready !!! Well, almost ! This is me about to perform our ‘Stagger-Through”. We’ve now put in 6 days solid production rehearsals for our QAL tour of North America and Beyond. Long days, hammering out new pieces of action - and interaction between us, the performers, and the massive and highly sophisticated beast which is our touring rig. Sound, lights, staging, moving parts, video content, magic tricks, monitoring, costumes, and ... MUSIC !!! I was pondering today that it’s such a shame that the wonderful Beatles never got the chance to indulge themselves and their fans in such a fantasy. Touring life became uncontrollable for them after only a few years of massive fame. For us we’ve had 40 years or more to develop and continuously innovate - and the technical and artistic team we have around us is at the very top level. Having recently spent some time with some of those amazing men who actually walked on the moon, I can definitely see some parallels. What we do isn’t exactly rocket science, but it’s a similar situation, where what you see - the end result on stage - is the result of the work of hundreds of highly talented people. I’m hugely proud of this whole operational team. Best in the World for sure. What’s the Stagger-Through ? Well in the theatre they would call it a dress rehearsal. It’s not exactly that for us, but it’s the time when we put together all the pieces for the first time, and run it, warts and all, as a continuous show in our private space. Lots of stops for train wrecks and final arguments ... but at the end of we can make a guess as to whether we actually have a show which works. I believe we do !! See you out there, Rockers ! Bri

brianmayforreal

Happy 4th, to all my dear American pals, and all those who treasure their independence and freedom, along with the independence and freedom of all creatures on Earth. Bri

Just one more eclipse shot - mixing it - better get some work done !! This is a sequential stereo and somebody moved - that’s why they look like they’re sinking into the kit ! Swipe for cross-eyed version, you cross-eyed folks ! I enjoyed sharing this cosmic moment with you all ! Cheers ! Bri

brianmayforreal

How cool was that ? Astronomy rocks ! Bri

TOTAL ECLIPSE of the Sun in progress right now in Chile !!! Click on the link in my Bio to see it LIVE !!! Totality in about an hour’s time. Bri

brianmayforreal

You can watch the Total Solar Eclipse LIVE RIGHT NOW - from La Silla Observatory, Chile ! 💥💥💥💥💥 CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO !!!! Join me !!! and to all my great friends in Chile and Argentina —- ENJOY !!! But protect your eyes - it only takes fraction of a second to damage your eyes forever. DO NOT TAKE THE RISK. Use an approved viewing filter until the moment of totality - and put it back on your eyes as soon as the first rays of sun reappear. Cheers - Bri

brianmayforreal

Hello People of the Earth ! There is something about California that makes it easy to focus on fitness and well-being. Love it ! Bri

brianmayforreal

This glorious sight is what we’ll all be missing tomorrow - those of us who are not in Chile or Argentina, or somewhere in the South Pacific. Those of you who are down there - have a wonderful Total Solar Eclipse Day ! The rest of us will have to be content with photographs - like this splendid capture by Jamie Cooper @jamiecooperphotography in Nashville, two years ago. What a beauty that was ! Bri

brianmayforreal

Rehearsal Land ... a complete replica of the way things will be on tour. Sooooo tempting to leak something ... the excitement here is palpable. But no ! All shall be revealed in 10 days time when we open in Vancouver. Yay ! Bri

Tonight at STARMUS - with David Eicher - delivering our 3-D talk on the Apollo missions and the Space Race - in front of the incredible men who actually took the Human Race to the Moon. I had to pinch myself !!! Was this the real life ?! Of course I’m viewing it all through my fashionable interferometric 3-D glasses !! Bri

A moment to treasure ! Backstage at STARMUS this morning with a posse of heroes. L to R ... Garik Israelian (STARMUS creator,) Bri, Brian Eno, Buzz Aldrin, Rusty Schweichert, Charlie Duke, Walt Cunningham, Harrison ‘Jack’ Smith. And now to the serious business of building a show for this night only. But who knows what the future may hold ?!! Bri

brianmayforreal

Good Morning Folks ! Early start for me - bound for Zürich - STARMUS 5. Like all the previous Starmus festivals, this one has had a difficult birth !! But my old friend, Armenian Astronomer Extraordinaire Garik Israelian, once again, has snatched victory from the jaws of the impossible, and I don’t doubt this will be at least as memorable an experience as the others. Astro-Musical Heaven !!! 💥💥💥💥 I’m rehearsing this evening - with maestro Hans Zimmer and a big orchestra. Something very different ! Bri
