We Will Rock You returns to London!
2012 marked the tenth anniversary of the Queen musical, We Will Rock You at the Dominion Theatre, now 21 years later the show is back home for a limited 12 week run at the stunning London Coliseum. We Will Rock You was created by English-Australian comedian, author, playwright and director Ben Elton and the legendary band Queen and opened at the Dominion Theatre in May 2002. Having rightfully earned its place on the top ten list of London's longest musicals, it won the 2011 Olivier Audience Award for best musical, the only award voted for entirely by the public. It was the second public vote award received by the show after winning the WhatsOnStage best new musical award in 2003.
A number of international productions of the show have followed, and We Will Rock You has now been seen by more than 20 million people in 28 different countries including Ireland, Germany, Australia, Canada, Russia, Spain, Japan, South Africa, Switzerland, Austria, New Zealand, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. This musical spectacular is all set to play its biggest audience yet at the Coliseum, taking to the same iconic stage that hosted Freddie Mercury’s 1979 Royal Ballet performance, this run is sure to go down in musical theatre history.

Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man? And can he help them break free?
