The Queen musical We Will Rock You is set to relaunch a North American national tour September 3 in Winnipeg, Canada, with dates also planned in New York City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, and Toronto.
We Will Rock You has book and original direction by Ben Elton. Casting for the tour is currently underway.
The musical is described as a “quirky, eccentric and heartfelt story of outsiders, it’s also a creative cautionary tale for the cyberage.” More than 24 songs from the Queen catalogue are incorporated, including “We Are the Champions,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “I Want To Break Free,” “Somebody To Love,” “Killer Queen,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Under Pressure,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites The Dust,” and “We Will Rock You.”
The hit musical premiered at London's Dominion Theatre in 2002.
Tickets for the Winnipeg tour launch go on pre-sale April 2. For a complete list of tour dates, visit queenonline.com.
