The world's favourite rock thatrical will return home to London's West End in 2023 for a limited season at the London Coliseum from 2nd June - 27th August 2023
21 years after it first exploded into the West End, Queen and Ben Elton's sensational smash hit show We Will Rock You returns to London for a historic and strictly limited 12 week residency at the London Coliseum - the very same stage which saw Freddie Mercury's Royal Baller gala performance in 1979.
Bursting with 24 of Queen;s greatest hits, We Will Rock You also boasts a script by Ben Eltom who will return to the directors chair for this production.
Queen band member and legend Brian May said
“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!!”
Roger Taylor said:
“Bigger, better, faster, funnier! Here we go again… yeaaaaaaaah!”
Opening at the Dominion Theatre in 2012, it played for 12 rocking years and over 4600 performances. It has since gone on to take over the world with various productions regularly playing at every corner of the globe. it has recently finished an extensive tour of the UK and Ireland.
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.”
