We Will Rock You, was the first victim of the Covid 19 pandemic in the city, with the opening night of its Bristol run pulled just an hour before the show started.
It was the night theatres went dark across the country for over a year. But now it’s back on a new tour and will be storming the city with its 20th anniversary year at the Bristol Hippodrome.
The show features 24 hit songs from Queen’s back catalogue. It’s played around the world in 19 countries and been seen by over 16 million people.
For its twentieth anniversary year, Ben Elton has returned to direct and work with the new 2022 cast.
Elton said: “I can hardly believe it’s been 20 years since We Will Rock You premiered in London. Or that much of what we thought was science fiction in the script back then has turned into science fact! I guess Queen were always ahead of the game! I’ve directed this show all over the world and I can’t wait to bring it home to the UK with a brand new production and a fabulous cast of young Bohemians, most of whom were rocking in their cradles when this adventure first began.”
We Will Rock You will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from 18 – 23 April 2022.
