The reformed members of QUEEN are to play a one-off show in the spring for their fans at LONDON CARLING BRIXTON ACADEMY.

The band will appear with former Free vocalist Paul Rodgers for the first time in the UK on March 28.

Tickets, which are priced at £55, will be allocated through a lottery system via the group’s website.

The new line-up will make their world debut before the London date at the 46664 South Africa concert on March 19.

Queen are expected to perform a full UK tour later this year.

They stopped touring in 1986, after frontman Freddie Mercury fell ill. He died of an Aids-related illness in 1991.
