We Will Rock You is set in the future, on a place once called Earth. Globalisation is complete. Everyone watches the same movies, wears the same clothes, and thinks the same thoughts. A safe, happy Ga Ga world. 

The Company Computers generate the music and the kids download it. All musical instruments are banned. But resistance is growing. A hero is needed. Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man, and can he help them Break Free? 

Legendary band Queen, fronted by the dynamic Freddie Mercury before his death in 1991, have been making music together since the 70's and have now joined forces with writer Ben Elton to bring their unique sound to theatreland. This mega-musical, seen by over 5 million people, includes 32 of Queen's classic hits, including Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, and more. 

One dream. One vision. One smash hit. Book your tickets today! 

Taking place in the distant future, the story of We Will Rock You exists predominantly as a framework allowing the cast to perform covers of Queen's greatest hits. Earth's name has been changed to Planet Mall. Everyone wears the same clothes, thinks the same thoughts and goes about in a brain-dead haze. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown. However, a small group of "Bohemians" struggles to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and (most of all) live music. With the help of Pop, an ancient hippie librarian, two Bohemians, Galileo and Scaramouche, find Rock's Holy Grail, Brian May's guitar buried in the remains of Wembley Stadium.
