Queen stars Brian May and Roger Taylor took to the stage at the end of the final performance of the band's West End musical We Will Rock You to bring the curtain down in style. The show at the Dominion Theatre closed on Saturday night (31May14) after 12 years, and the last ever performance featured a special appearance by the bandmates during the curtain call. May and Taylor performed Queen's iconic hit Bohemian Rhapsody for the stunned audience, and gave an emotional speech to mark the show's closure. May told the crowd, "We want to thank every one of the hundreds of theatre artists, musicians and crew with whom we've had the privilege of working. And of course, the audiences who have rewarded them with more than 4,500 standing ovations."
