May and Ellis bring their Candlelit Christmas Tour to the town’s Opera House on December 11.

This concert tour will feature new songs from the upcoming second album Anthems II, which the pair have been working on for the last year.

May comes hot from a Queen tour of festivals throughout Europe this summer, including a performance at the Isle of Wight Festival, which the organiser himself has called the greatest performance in the festival’s history. By the timeEllis and May embark on their Christmas tour, the now widely critically acclaimedcombination of Queen and Adam Lambert will have extended their tour de force in Asia.

Ellis in the meantime has consolidated her huge reputation in the world of musical theatre. She stands as one of the all-time most lauded Elphabas in Wicked, in London and on Broadway, and by December she will have delivered her starring role in the first run of the off-Broadway hit Murder Ballad in London’s Arts Theatre.

Tickets for the show cost £45, available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk/presale/xu1e14
