Queen musical We Will Rock You, one of the West End’s longest running musicals ever, is coming back to town!
We Will Rock You will play the London Coliseum this summer, from 2 June to 27 August 2023.
The brand new production, which toured the UK until September 2022, has a book by Ben Elton and features the music of Queen.
The show first premiered 20 years ago at the Dominion Theatre in May 2002 and was an immediate hit, running for over 12 years until May 2014.
We Will Rock You features over 24 of Queen’s greatest hits 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 “We Will Rock You”.
Brian May said in a press statement: “I’m thrilled we finally have this opportunity to put We Will Rock You back on stage in London, where it was born. The show’s original message of the fight to re-establish individuality in a dystopian corporate world is even more relevant now than when we began. It will be a completely new production that will burst on to the prestigious London Coliseum stage – but the story, the humour, and of course the Queen music, will hit you harder than ever. We WILL Rock You – again!!”
Ben Elton said: “I hope somebody’s squared this with English Heritage because the fabulous London Coliseum is a Grade II listed theatre and We Will Rock You is gonna blow the roof off.”
Casting and creative team for the show is to be announced.
