Freddie Mercury: Queen voted greatest live act of all time as Roger Taylor responds | Music | Entertainment

There have been countless iconic rock albums over the years but nothing beats the real thing at a live performance. Now The 40 Greatest Live Acts of All Time have been voted for by Absolute Radio listeners, in association with the Teenage Cancer Trust. And Freddie Mercury’s Queen came out on top, beating the likes of The Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac, in the Top 10 below.

Brian May said: “We’re very sad to announce the postponement of our summer shows in Europe, although, in the present crazy state of the world, it cannot be a surprise to our fans.

“Those incredible scenes at our concerts just over a month ago now seem like an impossibly distant dream.

“We were so lucky to be able to complete that tour, running just ahead of the wave that was about to break on us. 

“I know many of our fans are having similar moments of disbelief and bewilderment out there. Of course, we would have gone ahead with the dates had it been humanly possible.”

The Queen guitarist added: “The good news is that we do NOW have a PLAN B ready to roll. If you hold on to your tickets they will be valid for the rescheduled shows. God willing, we will be there with bells on!”

While Taylor said: “We’re all in this together. Devastating! Boringly frustrating! Scary and upsetting! 

“But…pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down…start all over again!!!  Be well….take care…coming right back at you as soon as we possibly can!!! Much love…Roger T xxx.”

And Adam Lambert added: “I am very disappointed that we won’t be touring Europe as planned, but we have to look after each other and put everyone’s health first. Look forward to getting out there when it’s safe.”
