      EVENT DETAILS
      We Will Rock You


      WE WILL ROCK YOU tells the story of a globalized future without musical instruments. A handful of rock rebels, the Bohemians, fight against the all-powerful Globalsoft company and its boss, the Killer Queen; they fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of the age of rock. Scaramouche and Galileo, two young outsiders, cannot come to terms with the bleak conformist reality. They join the Bohemians and embark on the search to find the unlimited power of freedom, love and Rock!The idea for the musical came after a meeting between the actor Robert De Niro with musicians Brian May and Roger Taylor, in Venice in 1996. De Niro's daughter was a big fan of the Queen and the actor asked if the legends of rock had never thought of creating a musical based on their songs. That was the beginning of everything.Since 2002 over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring production which is based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn). Elton fashioned this hilarious futurist comedy around more than 24 of Queens biggest hit songs including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Dont Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and of course, We Will Rock You.The audience get to become part of what eventually becomes a rock concert Ben EltonWE WILL ROCK YOU reflects the scale and spectacle that marked Queens live performances and earned the band its pinnacle position in rock history. With Queens 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 Queens concerts.Anyway the wind blows"The show is live, dangerous and more than anything else: it rocks! Brian May, Queen
