QUEEN Guitarist Pulls Out Of CROSSROADS GUITAR FESTIVAL

QUEEN guitarist Brian May has cancelled his participation in Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas next month. In a message on his official web site, Brian writes, "I have regretfully withdrawn from the Dallas concert. I just got to the point where I realized the pressure of work was insane. I couldn't have done it justice in this period of intense commitment to new 'We Will Rock You' shows, and life as it is right now. I've spoken to [Eric Clapton], and he was very understanding... He says he also finds pressure of work enormous these days, and sometimes has to pull back...I shall be sad not to be a part of it."

The QUEEN musical "We Will Rock You" opened in London in May 2002, and is currently playing in Melbourne, Australia, and Madrid, Spain. It opens in the U.S. in September in Las Vegas, and plans are underway for German, Scandinavian, Russian, and Canadian editions.
