Brian May, 74, has bid farewell to London after the rock star completed his 10-show tour with Queen and Adam Lambert around the city. He explained it was perhaps the most “physically challenging” tour the band had ever done.
The guitarist said he would now be taking a two-day break before heading out on tour across Europe for a month.
He added it was the first time that Europeans will be seeing the band since the “catastrophe of Brexit.”
Brian wrote in the caption: “Au revoir London !!! This little gem of a post pretty much sums up how I feel right now.
“Suddenly our series of London shows is completed – 10 packed and riotous concert nights – part of probably our most physically challenging yet most emotionally rewarding run around the UK ever.
“And now we grab a much needed two-day break, and head out to Europe for a month of serious touring. I’m excited.
“Very! I wonder how all our friends all around the Continent will view us – the first time they will have seen us since the catastrophe of Brexit – surely the stupidest backward step my country has taken in my lifetime.”
The star posted a short live clip of him playing the guitar against a psychedelic-themed backdrop.
Brian’s post was sent out in full view of his 3 million followers.
His fans were quick to jump to the comment section and share their thoughts.
