BRIAN MAY: Don’t Tell Him Where to Perform
Brian May has been on tour with singer Kerry Ellis this week in Eastern Europe, including a stop in Moscow.
He received a few negative E-mails regarding his performances there in light of Russia’s incursion into Ukraine, but he says, “I have strong views on this, which hopefully I’ll discuss in a separate message later on.” Earlier this month, May told us that he and Queen don’t allow political turmoil get in the way of where they will perform. “You can find fault with just about every country including our own… So our policy normally has been, ‘We go everywhere. We play to people. We play music. That’s our job.” May however, had no problem denouncing the U.S. during the early 2000’s because of our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Up next is Belarus on Friday.
