We Will Rock You musical's tickets go on sale for Sheffield dates
Smash-hit Queen musical We Will Rock You will storm Sheffield – with tickets going on sale this morning (Friday, March 19).
The, show will run at Sheffield City Hall from August 29 to September 2, 2022.
With 24 of Queen’s biggest hits and Ben Elton’s hilarious futuristic comedy writing combined, comes a show that boasts the scale and spectacle that marked the band’s legendary live performances.
We Will Rock You has seen unprecedented success in theatres and arenas all around the world since it began in 2002. Rave reviews and standing ovations have followed the show which has been seen by more than 16 million theatregoers in 19 countries.
Ben Elton said: “This show is all about legend. We take the legend of Queen and create our own fantastical story of young kids battling the mighty corporations who want to suppress their individuality and their love of music. They need a hero who can help them in their struggle, and we have two - the dreamer Galileo and the sassy rock chick Scaramouche. Guess who ends up winning?”
Expect your favourite Queen songs including We Are The Champions, Another One Bites The Dust, We Will Rock You, and, of course, Bohemian Rhapsody.
Queen guitarist Brian May said: “The amazing bonus is that Ben’s script subtly works as a metaphor too. People definitely come out of the theatre feeling that in a strange way they now know us, Queen, and our struggle, our journey.
"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 We Will Rock You fans will love revisiting the world’s first true Rock Theatrical, and a whole new generation will now discover the VIBE!”
Tickets for the eight performances of We Will Rock You will be released at 10am on March 19, priced from £30.10; go to www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
