THE SONGS of iconic rock band Queen will Bradford Alhambra as musical We Will Rock You returns. Two dozen hits by the stadium-filling band feature alongside a story and futuristic comedy script by famous comedian Ben Elton in the show from February 17-22.

We Will Rock You has been seen by more than 16 million theatregoers in 19 countries since being created in 2002, and was performed 4,600 times during it’s 12-year run at London’s Dominion Theatre.

The show includes songs like We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and of course We Will Rock You.

Queen member Brian May said: “This is a stunning state-of-the art new-look production of We Will Rock You - but of course the original story is now more relevant than ever.

“We’re confident fans will love revisiting the world’s first true Rock Theatrical, and a whole new generation will now discover the vibe. We Will Rock You boasts the scale and spectacle that marked the band’s legendary live performances – its dazzling, breathtaking style is guaranteed to blow your mind!”

We Will Rock You is set in a dystopian future where Earth is called Planet Mall and its inhabitants wear the same clothes, think the same thoughts and exist in a brain-dead haze. This system forbids musical instruments and composers, whilst rock music is all but unknown.

The musical tells the story of Galileo, Scaramouche, Killer Queen and the other ‘Bohemians as a journey to discover the Holy Grail of Rock and restore the free exchange of thought, fashion and most importantly, live music.

Speaking about the process he underwent to write the show’s script, Ben Elton said it became clear to him that the story had to comprise an abstract quality “that reflected the feel of the word and music, rather than its literal content”.

He added: “This was not pop music, but rock music. Some of the most famous rock ever written, and legendary music should have a legendary context. I began to think of legends, both new and old, from King Arthur to The Terminator; heroic myths in which brave individuals take on the vast monolithic force of evil systems.”

Brian May added: “The show needed to work in a theatrical context and retain the rock, whilst also incorporating the spectacle, uniqueness and humour embodied by Queen.”
