We Will Rock You celebrates 8th Birthday

Congratulations to We Will Rock You, which celebrates its 8th birthday today, 14 May 2010.

Already London’s long-running rock musical, We Will Rock You celebrated its birthday on Monday night with a charity gala performance attended by the show’s co-creators – and Queen band members – Brian May and Roger Taylor, who joined the company on stage for the finale.

The producers recently announced that the show has extended its booking period to April 2010 – setting it on course to reach its 10th year.

Using the music of rock legends Queen, and with a book by best-selling author Ben Elton, the show takes place in a futuristic world, Planet Mall, where rock music is banned. Globalisation is complete; everywhere the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. Individuality is unthinkable… unless you are a rebel, a Bohemian, who lives in the underbelly and resists the sterile world above. The Bohemians believe instruments still exist somewhere on Planet Mall, they just need a hero to find them. Is Galileo that man?

The show features many of Queen’s greatest hits including Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio GaGa and the title track.
