Why See We Will Rock You?

Musicals

Alright, louder!

The unforgettable songs of Queen form the basis of this iconic roof-raising jukeboxer, written by the band and Ben Elton. First blazing onto the West End in 2002, it has since been catapulted to international success, bringing the work of Freddie, Brian, Roger, and John audiences all over the globe with its tale of rock rebels looking for freedom and love. Fierce, hilarious and bursting with the hits you love, don't miss your chance to see it when it comes to you on this highly anticipated new tour.

The national jaunt comes after the 2018 Oscar-winning Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody sparked a wave of renewed interest in the boys' considerable contributions to the classic rock genre. With over 24 of Queen's best tunes delivered with a spectacle big enough to match the iconic quartet's electrifying live performances, We Will Rock You is the ultimate tribute to one of the greatest rock bands this world has ever known!

Expect breathtaking special effects, sexy costumes, copious amounts of leather and Queen classics like the titular showstopper 'We Will Rock You', 'Radio Gaga', 'Somebody To Love', 'Don't Stop Me Now' and many more jam-packed into an epic rock musical for the ages.

What is the story?

Set on the futuristic iPlanet, We Will Rock You follows two young rebels - Galileo and Scaramouche - who are determined to seek life outside of their manufactured music world where all instruments are banned. On the run from the Killer Queen's police, they join forces with the Bohemians in their struggle to search for the one remaining instrument which will help free them from the Killer Queen and her army of brain-washed Ga Ga kids.
