Smash hit musical We Will Rock You returns to Leeds Grand Theatre in a reimagined staging for 2019.

Featuring 24 of Queen’s biggest hits — including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and We Will Rock You — and Ben Elton’s futuristic comedy writing, We Will Rock You is a musical that boasts the scale and spectacle that marked the band’s legendary live performances.

The show tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown…

Taking on the role of Galileo is Olivier Award nominee Ian McIntosh (Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, The Commitments), he will be joined by Elena Skye (Les Misérables, Kinky Boots) in the role of Scaramouche.

Playing Killer Queen is Jenny O’Leary (Heathers The Musical, Rent), with Michael McKell (Macbeth, Blood Brothers) as Buddy, Adam Strong (Jesus Christ Superstar, Rock of Ages) as Khashoggi, David-Michael Johnson (We Will Rock You, Germany, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Brit and Amy Di Bartolomeo (Bat Out of Hell, Priscilla Queen of the Desert) as Oz.

Since 2002, over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by We Will Rock You’s awe-inspiring production. Before closing its 12 year run at London’s Dominion Theatre in 2014, the show was performed 4600 times.
