With a career that spanned two decades, countless hits and a set list that is relevant even today, what better backdrop for a musical than the works of Queen. Queen are a world-renowned rock band formed in 1970 consisting of members Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. Over their huge career, they managed to sell close to 200 million records, making them one of the world’s best selling music artists and in 2001, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We Will Rock You is a jukebox musical based on the songs of Queen with a book that was written by Ben Elton that first took the West End in 2002. Since its opening on the West End, it has been performed in over 17 countries with over 15 million theatregoers singing along to the hits of Queen. Some even say that it rocks as fiercely as the best of Queen’s concerts. In a wholly dystopian society, Earth has been renamed the iPlanet and is being controlled by GlobalSoft who rule that conformity is the norm with the Ga Ga Kids falling under the control of Killer Queen, the leader of GlobalSoft. However, The Bohemians align with a different form of thinking, valuing freedom, individuality and rock and roll in the fight against GlobalSoft and Killer Queen. Following Scaramouche and Galileo, the audience will join the Bohemians in a fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of rock. With legendary hits like ‘We Are the Champions’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ and ‘We Will Rock You’, this is one not to miss.
