The music of rock legends Queen is to be celebrated like never before as West End leading lady Kerry Ellis joins Scandinavian tribute stars Queen Machine for a fully orchestrated UK tour.
The all-new tour Queen Machine Symphonic featuring Kerry Ellis will see Queen’s greatest hits performed by leading European tribute band Queen Machine accompanied by the London Symphonic Rock Orchestra and conducted by Matthew Freeman, creating an unforgettable night of rock anthems.
Making their UK touring debut, Queen Machine are the go-to tribute band for the Official International Queen Fan Club and are one of the most popular bands in their native Denmark and neighbouring Scandinavian countries where they repeatedly sell out shows.
Joining them will be the UK’s leading lady of musical theatre Kerry Ellis, who originated the role of Meat, in Queen musical We Will Rock You. Since then, she’s forged a long-standing musical relationship and friendship with Queen guitarist Brian May, who describes the stage star as having “Britain’s most beautiful voice”.
Kerry is recognised as the leading lady of West End and Broadway musicals, with a number of starring roles in London, New York, and around the world. She has achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist signed to Universal Decca with her debut album Anthems. Kerry is best known for her roles including the original ‘Meat’ in Queen and Ben Elton’s musical, We Will Rock You; the first British actress to play Elphaba in Wicked in the West End as well as on Broadway; and Ellen in Miss Saigon. Other leading role credits include Grizabella in Cats at the London Palladium, for whichKerry won a What’s on Stage Award; Nancy in Oliver! Fantine in Les Misérables, and most recently, Sara in the European premier of Murder Ballad in London’s West End. Her chart-topping debut album ‘Anthems’ was produced by Brian May and gave the partnership their first taste of chart success, also collaborating on Kerry’s first major CD Wicked in Rock. This partnership triggered a highly successful touring career.
