Queen musical closing on London’s West End

A stage show featuring music from British rock band Queen is set to close on London’s West End this summer (14). We Will Rock You opened in 2002 and has become the longest-running production in the history of the Dominion Theatre.
The musical was created by Brian May, Roger Taylor and Ben Elton, and is based around the band’s hit songs Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga and Another One Bites The Dust, among others.
A joint statement from May, Taylor and Elton, reads, “We want to thank every one of the many hundreds of incredible musical theatre artists, musicians and crew with whom we’ve had the privilege of working at the Dominion since 2002. And of course the incredible audiences who have rewarded them with over four and a half thousand standing ovations!”
Dominion Theatre general manager David Pearson adds, “It has been a privilege to have hosted We Will Rock You for the past 12 years. To have the show rocking the Dominion and seeing a standing ovation night after night has been quite amazing. We wish the show every success for the future.”
The news comes days after Taylor and May announced they are teaming up with singer Adam Lambert for a 19-date North American tour this summer (14).
