Brian May announces all-day Bri-TV album launch with fan Q&A and mystery guest presenters | Music | Entertainment
This Friday, Queen guitarist Brian May is launching his remastered debut solo album Back to the Light. To celebrate and promote the record, the 74-year-old has asked fans to sign up to be his Bri-army and has announced Bri-TV. In a new video on his Instagram, Brian thanked his 10,000 strong Bri-army for their initiative, drive and imagination in helping him get a UK No 1 when the album launches.
Members of the Bri-army have pre-ordered Driven By You T-shirts with Brian May’s face on to gather awareness, while others have held up placards in the streets according to the star.
After strumming his electric guitar, the rock legend said, “I feel like the Grand Old Duke of York!”, before singing the rest of the song.
He said: “On Friday, which is my launch-day of Back to the Light, we’re going to have a little event which will be Bri-TV.
“So I’ll be going live on Instagram completely probably unpredictably and chaotically, but pretty much all through the day that’s my plan.”

Brian continued: “You’ll see the kind of insanity that goes on at my place on a launch day.
“We’ll be starting pretty early actually, probably at about eight o’clock in the morning. That’s unheard of for me, I know!”
The 74-year-old teased on Friday he’ll be interviewed by Matt Lucas on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 show, before appearing on Lorraine.
Brian said fans can follow along on bits via his Instagram and added: “I’m hoping you guys can be a part of that from my perspective and see how it goes on.”
Aside from Back to the Light, Brian hopes to rework his second solo album, 1998’s Another World, as well.
