The iconic artist is in high spirits following a “persistent illness”
Adam Lambert took a moment to update fans on Brian May’s condition, as he canceled various tours following a reported “persistent illness” earlier this year. The star reassures everyone that the Queen guitarist is currently in high spirits and is in a really good place.
He explained to Bang Showbiz while at the BBC Music Awards in London: “I spoke to him the other night and he is in great spirits and he is so excited for potentially doing some more performances next year. I can’t really say more than that. But he is in a really good place.”
The legendary musician was due to tour with singer Kerry Ellis throughout December, but an illness had slowly drained “his energy and his will.”
He shared on his official website at the time: “We’re very sad today to announce the indefinite postponement of our ‘candlelight’ concert dates this coming December. This is a decision I’ve agonised over, but in the end it has become inevitable.
I managed to complete the recent Queen and Adam Lambert dates in Asia but I have been increasingly battling with a persistent illness which is destroying my energy and my will. I am now at the point where I don’t feel confident to perform the scheduled shows to the standard we all expect.”
Brian had been strongly advised to rest and not risk failing or injuring himself on tour.
He continued: “I’ve been strongly advised to rest and heal, rather than go out and risk ‘falling down on the job’ out there, which would be a real tragedy. I’m convinced it’s much better taking the step to cancel the dates now, refunding the fans for the ticket sales, and giving all our team a chance to re-plan their time in December. Sincere apologies to all.”
