'I’m very concerned' Brian May speaks out on 'fracas' at Queen pop-up as police called


Brian May, 74, has taken to Instagram to express his worries after an issue arose at the Queen pop-up store, during the release of a limited edition. A “gang of intruders” are said to have abused those waiting in line for the item.

Brian posted an artwork of himself on Instagram in Halloween dress to his 2.9 million followers this morning.

He captioned the image: “My parting Halloween shot, folks… hope it was a good one for you all.

“Thanks @chiaratomanini – you always give me the right stuff!”

Brian’s post then took a more sombre turn when he discussed what happened at the Queen pop-up store.

The guitarist continued: “I’ve been hearing about the fracas at the Queen pop-up shop – and I’m very concerned to hear that some of you got abused by a gang of intruders.

“I’m assured that the people who run the shop are trying to make sure that all who legitimately stood in line for so long are taken care of.

“But my feeling is that in future perhaps we should try to find a better way of releasing limited editions which doesn’t risk this kind of unpleasantness. I’d be interested in your thoughts, folks. Bri.”

Fans were quick to comment on the events and offer their support to the Queen guitarist.

The Queen official Twitter page tweeted about the unfortunate event last Saturday.

QueenWillRock said: “After the regrettable temporary closure of the Queen The Greatest store on Carnaby Street on Friday, fans should rest assured that the store team is making every effort to contact those who registered their details directly.

“The store is open and we look forward to seeing you.”

ThePaulLawrenc1 replied: “I was in the queue, but got told to leave by the Police, and no member of staff came to request details.
