Brian May is coming to the end of his Queen and Adam Lambert UK tour and last night performed with Roger Taylor and the singer in Copenhagen, Denmark. During his acoustic section of the show where he performs Love Of My Life with footage of Freddie Mercury, the audience spontaneously burst into a rendition of Happy Birthday a few hours before the Queen guitarist’s 75th birthday.

Brian shared videos on his Instagram stories, clearly touched by the moment. He captioned the footage: “Thank you dear Copenhagen folks for my birthday present. Caught me completely by surprise !! Bri XXX So TODAY I am 35 !!!” 

The 75-year-old could even be heard saying to the audience: “I’ve got to do a show! Bless your hearts, you’re wonderful thank you.”

Today, he’s shared a video of artwork fans have shared with him on social media in celebration of his milestone.
