The Rhapsody Is Coming: Queen And Ben Elton's We Will Rock You Announces U.S. National Tour

BURBANK, Calif., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Queen Theatrical Productions, Tribeca Theatrical Productions, Phil McIntyre Entertainment and NETworks Presentations are pleased to announce the first North American tour of the worldwide smash hit musical, Queen and Ben Elton's We Will Rock You .

The 'rock theatrical', built around 24 of Queen's biggest hits delivered in a show that boasts the scale and electrifying spectacle that marked the bands' legendary live performances, will launch a national tour in Baltimore, MD, at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center, in October 2013.

This hilarious, multi-award-winning and record-breaking phenomenon is created by celebrated British comedian and writer Ben Elton (TV's "Mr. Bean" and "The Young Ones"), and boasts a fantastic score of Queen's biggest songs including "Another One Bites The Dust", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "We Are The Champions," "Bohemian Rhapsody" and, of course, "We Will Rock You."  

Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor are musical supervisors to the show, taking an active role in casting the singer/actors and musicians for every production worldwide. On occasion, they have made surprise appearances with the cast to uproars of delight from the audience.

Unprecedented success around the world has now paved the way for We Will Rock You to launch its first North American tour. 

The show is in its 11 th year at The Dominion in London's West End, one of London Theatreland's biggest theatres, making it the venue's longest-running production ever. The previous record holder was the original production of Robert Stigwood's Grease which ran at the Dominion for 3 years and 3 months.  We Will Rock You is now officially the 9 th longest running show in the West End.

At the 2011 Olivier Awards, the UK equivalent of the Tony Awards, We Will Rock You was crowned the UK's favorite show. In the only award category voted entirely by members of the public, the musical came out on top, beating a shortlist including Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys and Les Miserables.

Outside of the UK, the show has now been seen in local productions in 17 countries, playing to an audience of over 15 million people.
