WE WILL ROCK YOU TOUR
We Will Rock You is on a 10th Anniversary World Arena Tour and will also continue to play at London's Dominion Theatre.
This is the first We Will Rock You world arena tour featuring 24 of Queen's biggest hits. The world tour will visit arenas in Finland, Denmark, Holland, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Turkey, Bulgaria and the UK and Ireland. Further dates in Japan, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia will be announced shortly.
In the year 2309 the earth - now known as Planet Mall - is governed by the Killer Queen, who is the head of the Globalsoft Corporation. Conformity reigns.
We Will Rock You charts the journey of the Bohemians who are a small group of freedom fighters raging against the Killer Queen. They believe in free thought and creative music, with the heroes Galileo and Scaramouche desperate to recapture the Golden Age (1990 or whatever) - a time they call 'Rhapsody'.
This is achieved using more than 25 of Queen's greatest hits including "I Want to Break Free", "Under Pressure", "Who Wants to Live Forever", "A Kind of Magic", "Radio Ga Ga" and "We Will Rock You". The Killer Queen performs some excellently descriptive numbers: "Play the Game", "Don't Stop Me Now" and "Another One Bites the Dust"
The production is directed by Ben Elton with Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors. Arlene Phillips oversees the musical staging and choreography.
MiG Ayesa is Galileo: Kevin Kennedy and Brenda Edwards are reprising their roles of Pop and Killer Queen from the West End production, X Factor finalist Lucie Jones is Meat and Lauren Samuels is Scaramouche. Khashoggi is played by Sean Kingsley.
There is also a We Will Rock You 10th Anniversary Edition CD which was released on 15th October.
