KERRY ELLIS and BRIAN MAY will perform ANTHEMS: The Concert, live at the
Royal Albert Hall, London on Sunday May 1, 2011 at 8.00pm for the benefit of
Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Queen legend Brian May and West End and Broadway singing sensation Kerry Ellis are to
perform the live version of their hit album, ANTHEMS, in a special Royal Albert Hall concert
next Spring on the May Bank Holiday Sunday after the Royal Wedding.

ANTHEMS: The Concert, scheduled for Sunday May 1, 2011, will present BRIAN MAY and KERRY
ELLIS in concert accompanied by the City of London Philharmonic, The Anthems Ensemble, The
West End Chorus and Dancers making this a truly spectacular one-off event.

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

ANTHEMS: The Concert follows a series of acclaimed performances together: Kerry and Brian stole
the show when they performed together at the Royal Variety Show in 2008, they performed live
together again at the BBC Proms in the Park and at this year’s The Night of 1000 Voices, and most
recently opened the Remembrance Day concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

Brian May says: “From the moment I first heard Kerry sing, I was entranced, and felt the conviction
that I would one day make an album with her. The conviction never left me. The hard thing was to
find the right medium to harness that amazing voice – the material and arrangements had to be
worthy, and a musical style evolved to capture her unique magic. ANTHEMS: The Concert will show
what we’ve created together, a style that defines a new form of music – a kind of Anthemic-
Orchestral-Rock-Musical-Theatre Fusion.”

Broadway and London leading man ADAM PASCAL will support Brian and Kerry in a programme
which will also include songs from RENT, WICKED, CHESS, HAIRSPRAY, THE ROCKY HORROR
SHOW and the Elton John / Tim Rice Broadway musical, AIDA.

ANTHEMS: The Concert will be produced and directed by Hugh Wooldridge who has presented THE
NIGHT OF 1000 VOICES at the Royal Albert Hall on the May Bank Holiday Sundays over the past
eleven years (with the exception of 2008 when he presented with Tim Rice the phenomenally
successful CHESS IN CONCERT). Wooldridge says ‘It’s a great pleasure to work with these huge
talents whilst raising funds for a truly deserving charity’.

LEUKAEMIA & LYMPHOMA RESEARCH is the UK’s leading blood cancers charity. It is dedicated
to saving lives through research into better treatments and cures for leukaemia, lymphoma and
myeloma. The charity receives no government funding and relies entirely on people coming together
to fundraise. Cathy Gilman, Chief Executive, says: "Since 1960, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research
has invested in world-class research and survival rates have increased dramatically for patients with
leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. However, there’s still a long way to go and money raised from ANTHEMS: The Concert will help us get closer to a cure. After the success of their performance at THE NIGHT OF 1000 VOICES in 2010,
we are delighted that Kerry and Brian supported by Adam are reuniting to raise much-needed funds
on our behalf.”

Got my Tickets :-)     Could this be a prelude to a tour?  Kerry did say in an interview recently, that she wouldn't mind going on the road, with a tour.  Even though Brian gave her a LOOK of "You haven't asked me!!"


Joyful the sound
