In one sense, Queen and Adam Lambert fans were lucky, with the most recent leg of their Rhapsody tour ending in later February and not set to resume until late May. So, for now, the band have not had to postpone any dates due to the worldwide pandemic, except for Paris, France on May 26. Of course, this could all change depending on the impact of coronavirus on health services and the global economy.
Now, in a very honest post, Brian May has revealed he is wondering if he will ever get to play live with Queen and Adam Lambert again.
He wrote: “Hey ! Your friendly neighbourhood rock star here – having moments of wondering whether he will ever do that thing on stage again.
“Those incredible scenes at our concerts in South Korea, Japan, New Zealand and Australia just a month ago now seem like an impossibly distant dream.
“But we were so lucky to be able to complete that tour, running just ahead of the wave that was about to break on us all.”
The rock legend, referring to his video where he’s using his exercise bike, added: “And don’t worry – it might look like I’m bashing my brains out on the bike screen, but I’m not !
“Feel free to laugh ! I do a mixture of upper body exercises while pedalling, including those press-ups. It’s non-impact !!!
“Time-lapse video inspired by my amazing pal Kerry Ellis whose exercise regime is a model to us all. Bri.”
He also shared a message about dealing with his depression during isolation, in his post-workout video.
May said: “Hey folks, just done my thirty minutes on the bike. I’ll do some stretches and a hot shower and a cold shower now.
“I think it’s pretty good to keep your personal fitness up, in the face of challenges that may come in.
“Makes me feel better in the body, but also in the mind, a lot.
“And having dealt with a lot of depression over the years, this feeling of isolation and desperation, if you have it then exercise is a great, great way to deal with it and to start the day by reclaiming your mind and your body.”
