WE WILL ROCK YOU
- By KEN WERTHER
The legendary Freddie Mercury once said, “A concert is not a live rendition of our recorded music. It’s a theatrical event.” Since 2002, over 16 million theatregoers have been thrilled by We Will Rock You, an awe-inspiring production based on the music of Queen with a book by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn). Elton created a futuristic story 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. After the Oscar-winning film Bohemian Rhapsody, the music of Queen is more popular than ever.
We Will Rock You is a quirky, eccentric and heartfelt story of outsiders. It is also a creative cautionary tale for the cyber age. It follows two revolutionaries, Galileo and Scaramouche, on a quest to save rock n’ roll in a post-apocalyptic world where there are no musical instruments and rock n’ roll has died. They join a small group of societal outcasts, the Bohemians, and fight for freedom, individuality, and the rebirth of rock n’ roll. We Will Rock You reflects the scale and spectacle that marked Queen’s live performances and earned the band its position at the pinnacle of rock history. Queen’s legacy is unique and solid. Love of the music will never die.
