Electric guitar player Brian May stunned theatergoers in Somerset this week by appearing at the opening night of We Will Rock You.

The musical by Ben Elton is now being staged at the Bristol Hippodrome, treating ticketholders to a science fiction story based on the music of Queen.

However, the audience attending the first performance of its six-week run did not expect to see a member of the original band performing live.

Brian May, complete with his homemade electric guitar, took to the stage during the second act and, in the words of the Swindon Advertiser, "blew the roof off with his trademark sizzling guitar riffs".

The Weston Mercury was similarly full of praise, describing May's electric guitar solo as "mind-blowing".

According to the newspaper, the rock legend's surprise appearance prompted the crowd to go wild and led to a 15-minute standing ovation.

"Words cannot describe how truly spectacular this show is," the Mercury added.
