Rocker Brian May is set to entertain commuters in London on Friday (01Mar13) by performing at a train station to launch a tiger conservation event.
The Queen guitarist is teaming up with West End star Kerry Ellis for the show at St Pancras International in aid of a tiger conservation fundraising initiative by the Born Free Foundation and the Environment Investigation Agency.
May says, "This is a wild scheme - part of a last-ditch attempt to save these magnificent wild animals. We will pitch ourselves into the Gothic public space in St Pancras International on March 1st, and hopefully make an impact on commuters.
"Tigers are on the verge of extinction - our grandchildren may never have the chance to see one. This is a real chance to gather support, address the issue, and avoid an imminent tragedy."
Ellis adds, "I think we all feel desperately sad that we are perilously close to losing these magnificent and beautiful creatures forever. This is a real chance to make a difference and rally support to save these precious wild animals."
