Queen Musical Coming to North America
Subscribe to WWMJ Ellsworth Maine on
After playing London’s West End for more than a decade and selling 15 million tickets worldwide, ‘We Will Rock You’ — the “rock theatrical” produced in conjunction with Queen‘s Brian May and Roger Taylor — will finally tour North America for the first time.
The award-winning phenomenon was created by British writer and comedian Ben Elton (you may have seen him on the TV shows ‘Mr. Bean’ and ‘The Young Ones’) and features 24 of Queen’s biggest hits, including ‘Another One Bites the Dust,’ ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love,’ ‘We Are the Champions,’ ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and, of course, ‘We Will Rock You.’
May and Taylor serve as musical supervisors and have taken an active role in casting each of the local productions in 17 countries in which it’s played. The expansive North American tour (which was recently cast) will start in Baltimore, Md., on Oct. 15, and wrap in Los Angeles in August of 2014.
