Queen To Stage Sequel To Popular West End Musical

April 15, 2008
Queen To Stage Sequel To Popular West End MusicalQueen’s guitarist Brian May has confirmed that plans are in place for a sequel to the West End musical, We Will Rock You.

May described the task of following up the original as a “real challenge”.

Almost two million people have seen the Ben Elton directed We Will Rock You musical since it opened in 2002.

The production has also gone on to tour theatres in Australia, Europe and the US.

Speaking shortly before he was installed as Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University yesterday (April 15th), May also confirmed that Queen will release a new album later this year.

“The long arm of Queen has pulled me back in at the moment. It is a beast,” he said.

The album will be accompanied by a new tour, which May admitted had become “very consuming”.

“We've chosen our set, we've chosen our environment on tour. It is very exciting, very exciting indeed. Very time consuming but Queen always was consuming."
