LATEST: Pop babes Britney Spear, Beyonce Knowles and Pink infuriated Queen star Brian May when they left a performance of his London musical WE WILL ROCK YOU early.

The three superstars delayed last night's (26JAN04) production at the DOMINION THEATRE by an hour, so they could appear on stage following a screening of their latest PEPSI advert - much to the anger of the paying audience.

But after appearing on stage with Queen rockers May and Roger Taylor, the trio disappeared into Pink's limo, leaving the Royal Boxes, which had been reserved for the stars, empty.

A theatre source says, "Brian was furious. The Pepsi advert and the surprise visit of Britney, Beyonce and Pink was a huge honour for the cast of the show. They were supposed to meet-and-greet everyone involved in the production and actually see the show, but they went off to party together instead."
