Queen and Ben Elton’s hit musical ‘We Will Rock You’ is set to wow audiences at Bristol Hippodrome as part of its 20th anniversary tour.
Beginning in Portsmouth in February, the tour will then take place in 27 venues across the country before culminating in a residency at the Palace Theater in Manchester in September.
Bristol audiences can see the much-loved musical extravaganza featuring 24 of Queen’s greatest hits, live in April at the Hippodrome.
The musical has enjoyed unprecedented success in theaters and arenas around the world since its London premiere almost 20 years ago at the Dominion Theater in May 2002. And now the original We Will Rock You writer and the godfather of stand-up comedy, Ben Elton will be back in the director’s chair working with the new cast of 2022 ready to thrill UK audiences once again.
Ben Elton said: “I find it hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since We Will Rock You premiered in London. Or that much of what we thought was science fiction in the script at the era turned into scientific reality! I guess Queen was always ahead of the game!
“I’ve taken this show around the world and can’t wait to bring it back to the UK with a brand new production and a fabulous cast of young bohemians, most of whom were rocking in their cribs when this adventure began. .”
