May yesterday shared a video of himself on Instagram walking along a Dunedin beach and his "new friend" a red-billed sea gull.

"Getting to know Dunedin!

"My first time ever on the South Island of New Zealand. Nice brisk walk and met a new friend, a red-billed gull, chasing my blues away.

"Also unexpectedly met a lovely bunch of Vegan humans nearby."

Gates open for Queen + Adam Lambert at 6pm.
