Given the success of the film “Bohemian Rhapsody” last year, if you held the rights to a musical based on the beloved music of Queen, you’d be putting it everywhere you could these days, right?
Since 2002, according to a news release from event promoter Live Nation, more than 16 million people in 19 countries have seen the show, boasting a futuristic story and more than 20 Queen hits, including “We Are the Champions,” “Somebody to Love,” “Killer Queen,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Another One Bites the Dust” and, of course “Bohemian Rhapsody” (and of course, of course, of course “We Will Rock You”).
Here’s a bit more about the show, from the release:
‘We Will Rock You’ 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, as they fight to take back the iPlanet from the all-powerful Globalsoft, led by the Killer Queen. They fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of rock ‘n roll.
