Brian May and his wife Anita Dobson dress to impress in whimsical steampunk costumes as they attend the Cirque Du Soleil KURIOS premiere

Brian May and Anita Dobson pulled out all the stops as they donned steampunk costumes for the European premiere of Cirque Du Soleil’s KURIOS on Wednesday night.

The Queen rocker, 75, and his EastEnders star wife, 73, certainly caused a stir when they decided to wear their quirky costumes for the event at London’s Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the new show by the cabinet of curiosities.

Brian wowed in a black top hat with steampunk goggles while much of his face was covered with a gold mask.

The guitarist added a striking black longline blazer with burgundy lapels and paired this with a black and gold tie and striped pants.

Not to be outdone, Anita rocked a similar top hat alongside a fitted cropped black velvet blazer.

She wore it over a vintage-style black dress with lace, a fishnet skirt and a black and white striped petticoat.

The pair looked in high spirits as they beamed for the camera as they undoubtedly stole the show at the star-studded event.

The production, titled Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities, follows the story of a 19th-century world inventor who invents a machine that defies the laws of time, space and dimension.

It comes weeks after rock royalty meets real royalty after Queen guitarist Brian May was knighted at the New Year’s Honors.

Artist Grayson Perry, sixties fashion designer Dame Mary Quant, and members of the Euro-winning football team the Lionesses are also on the list of King Charles III’s first honors.

Brian May, knighted for services to music and charity, performed God Save The Queen on the roof of Buckingham Palace in 2002 for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

He also opened this summer’s Platinum Jubilee concert at the Victoria Monument opposite the Palace.

Sir Brian has more recently focused on animal rights activism and astrophysics. He said: “I don’t think I expected it because I didn’t live the kind of life I thought would lead to a knighthood.

“First of all, I have been quite vocal in my criticism of recent governments.

“I thought I was on the wrong side of all that stuff. It is a nice surprise to be given this honor.”

Congratulations: It comes weeks after rock royalty meets actual royalty after Queen guitarist Brian May was knighted at the New Year's Honors
