Goodbye Everybody We've Got To Go!
12 Mar 2014It has now been announced that We Will Rock You will be closing after 12 fantastic years at the Dominion Theatre.
The show featuring the music of rock supergroup Queen has shocased to 6.5 million delighted West End theatre goers will finally close after a record-breaking run at the Dominion Theatre earning it a place in the top 20 longest running West End shows of all time.
Brian May and Roger Taylor, and writer Ben Elton, the shows co-creators commented: "We want to thank every one of the many hundreds of incredible musical theatre artists, musicians and crew with whom we've had the privilege of working at the Dominion since 2002. And of course the incredible audiences who have rewarded them with over four and a half thousand standing ovations!”
Featuring spectacular sets and flambuoyant costumes and a line-up of Queen’s most popular hits, including Radio Gaga, Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You, the show is set in a futuristic world where rock music is banned and tells the story of a group of rebels, the Bohemians, who live in the underbelly and resist the sterile world above. The Bohemians believe instruments still exist somewhere on iPlanet, they just need a hero to find them!
Rumours are already circulating as to which new show will replace We Will Rock You at the Dominion, with the recently announced Back To The Future currently favourite.
