TICKETS ON SALE FOR WE WILL ROCK YOU

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Friday 9 October, for the Sydney and Melbourne seasons of the worldwide smash hit musical WE WILL ROCK YOU. The Australian tour will begin at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre on 30 April 2016, then travel to the Lyric Theatre, QPAC, Brisbane from 3 July; then on to Melbourne’s Regent Theatre from 30 August. Perth’s Crown Theatre follows from November, then the Festival Theatre, Adelaide from January, 2017.

Since 2002 over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring production which is based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn). Elton fashioned this hilarious futurist comedy around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs 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 of course, We Will Rock You.

WE WILL ROCK YOU reflects the scale and spectacle that marked Queen’s live performances and earned the band its pinnacle position in rock history. With Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors and “a band without parallel in the theatre” behind the cast, the audience can expect WE WILL ROCK YOU to rock as fiercely as the best of Queen’s concerts.
The original Australian tour of WE WILL ROCK YOU opened at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre on 7 August, 2003 with a record advance, and Brian May and Roger Taylor in attendance. Australia was the first country outside the UK to produce a local version of the mega-hit musical, and the production dominated the 2004 Helpmann Awards, receiving five Helpmann Awards.

The 2016 Australian tour of WE WILL ROCK YOU is produced by John Frost, in association with Queen Theatrical Productions, Phil McIntyre Entertainment and Tribeca Theatrical Productions.

“There’s no escaping the irresistible pull of these songs, or the visual and aural assault on the senses that the show accompanies them with.” – Sunday Express
“A new breed of musical. It’s brilliant.” – BBC Newsnight
