See We Will Rock You at the Theatre Royal
For anyone wishing to see the hit rock musical We Will Rock You, tickets in Glasgow are going quickly. The musical, which brings together 24 of the legendary rock band Queen's most beloved songs with a storyline crafted by Ben Elton, will run at Glasgow's Theatre Royal from the 9th to the 28th of December 2019.
Unlike the recent Oscar award winning film Bohemian Rhapsody, this hit musical does not tell the life story of Queen's enigmatic frontman Freddie Mercury. Instead, anyone who buys tickets to We Will Rock You in Glasgow will enjoy an original story. It's a dystopian future where freedom of expression is no longer common. Musical instruments have been outlawed, while rock and roll and other forms of popular music are lost beneath the sands of time, unknown to all but for a select few.
Instead, the iPlanet's rulers are the Globalsoft Corporation who control the minds of the Ga Ga Kids with computer-generated music. It's up to a pair of misfits named Galileo and Scaramouche to break free. The storyline and songs weave together seamlessly thanks to the close collaboration between playwright Ben Elton and original Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor.
The musical is quite funny too: Elton was a staff writer for the British cult comedy series The Young Ones and Black Adder. Elton also made a name for himself as a cutting-edge stand up comedian and satirist.
As for the British rock band Queen, they need no introduction as they have been famous for decades. In fact, their legendary status continues to grow, even though Freddie Mercury passed away in the early 1990s. Generation after generation continues to discover Queen's extensive catalogue. It's a catalogue chock full of fine pop songs, hard rocking jams, mini-operas, and stadium-filling sing alongs.
