It is with great excitement and pleasure that the Empire Theatre announces the 2022 Major production will be the Queen and Ben Elton hit jukebox musical, We Will Rock You. This highly energetic rock and roll musical will be performed across six shows from Friday March 18 to Saturday March 26.
Music royalty, hit songs, brilliant performances – Get ready to ‘Break Free’ as the Empire Theatres presents the worldwide smash hit musical We Will Rock You in March 2022.
Since 2002, more than 16 million theatregoers in 28 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.
The musical takes place in a future age on a planet once called Earth that is now controlled by a mighty corporation … rock music is unheard and all musical instruments are banned. The hope of breaking free rests with an unlikely resistance – an alliance of rebel Bohemians.
