The guitarist took the stage at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, where his Queen bandmate wrapped up a 14-date UK headline tour. Taylor was out on the road in support of his sixth solo album, ‘Outsider’, which arrived on October 1.

After performing a string of solo and classic Queen tracks – including ‘Under Pressure’ and ‘These Are the Days of Our Lives’ – Taylor wrapped up the main set by welcoming May onstage to cover Little Richard‘s ‘Tutti Frutti’.

“We started it in Nashville when we were all quite tired,” the drummer explained. “We couldn’t decide on a title and the lyric felt a little too negative for Queen, maybe. But it was pretty damn good, and I hope it comes to light.”







Earlier this month, Roger Taylor criticised anti-vaxxers for being “ignorant and stupid”. “But here we are; it’s a clear cut case,” he said. “Vaccinations have been with us a long time now, and they work. Please, get vaccinated.”
