Addressing fans, Brian May, said: “We’re very sad to announce the postponement of our summer shows in Europe, although in the present crazy state of the world, it cannot be a surprise to our fans.

“Those incredible scenes at our concerts just over a month ago now seem like an impossibly distant dream.

“We were so lucky to be able to complete that tour, running just ahead of the wave that was about to break on us.

“I know many of our fans are having similar moments of disbelief and bewilderment out there.The good news is that we do now have a 'plan B' ready to roll. God willing, we will be there with bells on.”

Singer Adam Lambert added: “I am very disappointed that we won’t be touring Europe as planned, but we have to look after each other and put everyone’s health first. Look forward to getting out there when it’s safe.”
