“Featuring stunning live performance photography, intimate off-stage moments and a glimpse of the band’s outrageous ‘down-time’, this tour is every bit the spectacle, and follows hot on the heels of the sell-out UK tour of David Bowie photography ‘David & I’ by Denis O’Regan that gained national acclaim in 2016,” say organisers.

The tour will be supporting The Mercury Phoenix Trust, the charity set up in memory of Freddie Mercury.

All events will run from 7.30pm to 9pm for standard admission tickets, with VIP ticket holders gaining access from 6.30pm for a ‘Question and Answer’ session with Denis O’Regan and private viewing.
