- Queen star Brian May left fans in a frenzy in his Instagram comments section after posting a clip of himself post-workout and shirtless.
Pointing the camera towards himself as he sported a heart rate monitor around his chest, he spun the lens around to show off the Japanese skyline he was looking towards out of a large window.
The 76-year-old musician is currently taking part in the last leg of his Rhapsody tour with bandmates Roger Taylor and Adam Lambert.
He captioned the post: “My private gym! Not so glamorous but – job done! 8 peaks this time – day off – show time tomorrow in Sapporo.
“Sporting my Polar heart rate monitor strapped around me – which connects to the app on my phone to give me a trace of my BPM during such escapades. Fitness Rocks! Bri.” (sic)
Fans immediately flocked to the comments under the post, with some left gobsmacked by the sight.

One penned: “I’m not gonna say anything because my friend will probably see what I’ll comment, but he looks handsome.”
Another beamed: “Oh myyyyy … oh myyy. you look… really good I gotta say.. ! Gulp!!” along with a series of heart emojis.
“It rocks on you!! You are in great shape!! You inspire others!! My dear Brian, there is no one like you,” a third applauded.
Another fan wrote: “Wow. Was not expecting that view when I woke in the middle of the night. I’m not sure if the skyline or the view inside that room is better, but MY heart rate says i know which one I am enjoying. Private gym…So glad you are getting treated like the rock Royalty you are!!”
Brian May updated fans on his health and workout regime
Another echoed: “Woah! Well that took my breath away Bri! … and the view outside.”
A sixth added: “Dearest Bri, your motivation to keep your fitness up is incredibly inspiring. And can I just say that you sure look a thousand times more glamorous than me during a workout!! The skyline is definitely not the only gorgeous view in your post… “ (sic)
At the end of last month, May assured his fans he was “fit and ready” for the Japan tour after openly addressing his health complaints in the past.
He continued: “Final checks, packing, last fitness and finger-end hardening playing commitments – some people might call that practising!!!

“And – I hope I am fit and ready!!! We’ll soon be on that big bird in the sky. Yeeeow!”
The legendary singer wowed fans earlier this week when they kicked off the first leg of their Japanese tour.
After starting in the almost 50,000-capacity Nagoya Super Dome, May expressed how overwhelmed he had felt in a social media post later.
He wrote: “Yes – THANK YOU, good people of Nagoya – for a truly wonderfully warm reception. So why have I been so quiet? I was going so well on Instagram, wasn’t I ?!
“But now I have been finding it hard to post anything – because emotionally I’m still trying to process the emotions I felt on our first night.”
