Brian May, 74, unfortunately interrupted a cricket match as he disembarked his helicopter over the weekend, according to reports. The musician flew in his private chopper to attend fellow Queen member Roger Taylor’s daughter’s wedding in Mawnan Smith, near Falmouth, Cornwall.

Cricketers and spectators watched as May and his wife Anita, 72, descended from the helicopter.

Falmouth 2nd XI and Helston 2nd XI at the Hine Downing Oval had to be interrupted for seven minutes as a result of May’s sudden arrival.

A Falmouth Cricket Club spokesman recounted the unusual events.

“The helicopter took about seven minutes to land,” he told MailOnline.

“The club knew it was coming, we do get one or two helicopters who land on the outfield from time to time.

“Everyone just stopped to watch this monster land in the middle of the game.

“It dropped him off then went off to refuel then came back again.”

The spokesman added: “It’s something you don’t see every day.

“They went to the wedding then came back and flew off at about 10.15pm.

“It was quite a good game but we lost. Being the second team, there wasn’t a big crowd.”

One eyewitness also told the news outlet about what they saw on Saturday: “Helicopter stops play.

“Falmouth 2nds match v Helston interrupted this afternoon by a helicopter bringing, so I’m told, Brian May and his wife to Roger Taylor’s daughter’s wedding.”

The news comes after the rocker told his fans on Saturday that he is “taking a break” from Instagram.

Last Friday, May spoke out about his health concerns on the social media platform, where he has garnered 2.9 million followers.

He explained he had the “stuffing” knocked out of him after suffering a heart attack in May last year.

He wrote in post: “Overwhelmed by your response yesterday, dear pals.

“Thanks! I’m gonna take a break from talking about myself now – somehow it feels like enough. 

“But it’s been a great journey into the past – thanks for sharing it with me. Bri.”

He also shared artwork from fans, who had been inspired by his latest music video.
