Aside from being one of the great guitar stylists, Queen rock star Brian May devotes much of him time campaigning for wildlife issues. In 2010 May started the Save Me campaign to raise awareness of animal welfare.
The Independent reports that the Queen guitarist will play at the first-ever Wildlife Rocks show. The family-oriented show will take place on September 1 at Guildford Cathedral in England, with May performing with musicals star Kerry Ellis.
He said: “We’ve gathered phenomenal momentum with the Save Me campaign and now is the time to bring this together with some amazing, like-minded partners for a real celebration of all that’s great about the wildlife that we share this planet with.
“We’re all quick to focus on the issues of animal welfare, and there is much to do, but we want this to be about how amazingly rich our natural heritage is and how we’ve all got a role to play in preserving and nurturing it.”
Anne Brummer, chief executive of Save Me added: “We’re starting modestly, but we’re planning on making Wildlife Rocks an annual celebration that gets bigger and better every year. 2012 is the time to get in and experience it at the start.”
