Brian May and Kerry Ellis have confirmed details of their ‘Born Free’ tour this November.
 
The pair will embark on an eleven date run, starting in Bury St Edmunds on November 5th and ending at The Swan in Wycombe on November 19th. 
 
May and Ellis’ tour will coincide with a new recording made by the pair of  Born Free, the Oscar-winning song written for the 1966 film of the same name. The tour promises ‘a new collection of their own personal favourite songs as well as new arrangements of some of those they have previously performed in concert and recorded together.’
 
Speaking in a statement, Brian May says: "Over the last year, Kerry and I have been recording new material when our schedules have allowed it.  As on the Anthems album, some of the tracks have very big and splendid arrangements, but we have become more and more fascinated with the magic of great songs stripped down to their core and re-interpreted in an 'acoustic' way. 

"We find there is a purity which makes the songs speak very clearly.  Kerry's instincts as an interpreter of songs are always inspiring, and the art of arranging has always been one of my obsessions.  We have found that the two of us just working live off each other can distill the very essence of a song - and that's what we hope to bring you in these dates.   After all, if you have great songs and a great singer, what more do you need?  Well, maybe just a little bit of guitar!”
