Here’s one to look forward to – the New Theatre in Peterborough has released tickets for the smash hit Queen and Ben Elton musical, ‘We Will Rock You’ which is coming to the city next April.
Following the triumphant 2010 and 2011 UK theatre tours and 2013 10th anniversary world arena tour, the show will embark on a brand new UK & Ireland tour, kicking off in September. Tickets are on sale now for the Peterborough show next April 19-24, 2021.
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.
It’s seen incredible success in theatres and arenas around the world and the nine month tour will see the Rock Theatrical performed in front of thousands of rock fans all over the country including Peterborough!
Richie Ross, Theatre Director at the New Theatre said – “We are absolutely thrilled to be part of the 2021 UK tour of We Will Rock You. Selladoor Venues are committed to bringing first-class productions to our local region and this show ticks every box. This is an unmissable event in the New Theatre’s diary and sure to be a huge hit with our local audiences!”
Since 2002 over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by We Will Rock You’s awe-inspiring production showcasing a number of Queen’s finest hits, including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and, of course, We Will Rock You. Before closing its glorious 12 year run at London’s Dominion Theatre, the show was performed an astonishing 4600 times.
The touring production of We Will Rock You reaches theatres carrying with it an impressive legacy: when it first became news that one of Britain’s most phenomenally successful comedy writers Ben Elton was teaming up with legends of rock, Queen, for a musical there was much speculation on what such a unique collaboration would turn out.
So impressed after attending the original workshop, screen icon Robert De Niro and his company Tribeca came on board as American partners. De Niro continues to support the show, even making a special visit to London in 2013 to help celebrate the 10th anniversary in style. The audience erupted with thunderous applause, as he joined the cast on stage after the landmark performance.
We Will Rock You is heading to the New Theatre in Peterborough from next April 19-24, 2021. Tickets are now on sale so bBook early to secure the best seats in the house by visiting www.newtheatre-peterborough.com or call the Box Office on 01733 852992.
