The mythical guitar player from Queen will be 60 years old on July 19th. In order to celebrate the occasion, the Queen Fan Club Portugal "Keep Queen Alive" will organize a tribute to Brian May in Lisbon on Saturday, July 21st.
Considered to be one of the most talented guitar players of our time, with an extremely active career during the last 3 decades, Brian May has earned his place in Rock history through his work. Successful composer, he is the author of some of Queen's greatest hits, such as We Will Rock You, Who Wants To Live Forever, The Show Must Go On and Fat Bottomed Girls. Brian has recently resumed his old passion for Astronomy, releasing "Bang", a book on the origin of the Universe. Not leaving music behind, Brian May and Queen plan on releasing an album of originals together with Paul Rodgers in 2008.
The event will take place Saturday, July 21st, at 9 p.m. at Rock in Chiado, Lisbon. Programming contemplates the visualization of Queen concert in Nep Stadium, Budapeste, in 1986; karaoke with Queen songs only; the special and indispensable performance of the Portuguese Queen Tribute Band One Vision.
During the day merchandise from the Queen Fan Club Portugal will be on sale and a slide show with some rare pictures of Queen and of previous Keep Queen Alive events will be on display.
