We Will Rock You
We Will Rock You
Following years of success on London’s West End, WE WILL ROCK YOU finally made it’s full North American debut with a 116-show tour in the United States and Canada. This quirky, eccentric and heartfelt story of outsiders is also a creative cautionary tale for the cyberage.
With the Oscar-winning film, Bohemian Rhapsody, the music of Queen is more popular than ever. WE WILL ROCK YOU follows two revolutionaries, Galileo and Scaramouche, on a quest to save rock n’ roll in a post-apocalyptic world where there are no musical instruments and rock n’ roll has died.
Galileo and Scaramouche will join a small group of societal outcasts, the Bohemians, as they fight to take back the iPlanet from the all-powerful Globalsoft, led by the Killer Queen. They will fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of rock n roll.
Since 2002 over 16 million theatregoers in 19 countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring production. Elton fashioned this futuristic story around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs including: We Are the Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and, of course, We Will Rock You.
WE WILL ROCK YOU reflects the scale and spectacle that marked Queen’s live performances and earned the band its pinnacle position in rock history. With Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors and “a band without parallel in the theatre” behind the cast, the audience can expect WE WILL ROCK YOU to rock as fiercely as the best of Queen’s concerts.
“A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It’s a theatrical event.”
– Freddie Mercury

“The singing and choreography is nothing short of spectacular.”
“The house band rocked on every musical number.”
“Many lessor Queen songs [like ‘A Kind of Magic’ and ‘Hammer to Fall’] are so good.”
