Last Horizon Song Information

Last Horizon was released on December 6, 1993 as a single from Back to the Light. It didn’t do very well, only reaching number 51 in the charts and only spending 2 weeks in the charts. However, the B-sides of the Last Horizon single included some live tracks and these were later released on the Brian May album ‘Live at the Brixton Academy’. Brian plays Last Horizon at all his concerts since 1993, even the Queen + Paul Rodgers and Queen + Adam Lambert tours. This is a wonderful song by Brian May and I really hope you enjoy learning and playing it – if you have tried it, please let me know how you got on.
