We Will Rock You achieves the highest number of paid admissions in one week for any West End show in 2008
The Queen musical We Will Rock You , claims to have achieved the highest number of paid admissions in one week for any West End show in 2008 - week commencing 29 Dec 2008, attracted over 20,000 ticket buyers across six days at the Dominion Theatre.
“It is a testament to the incredible word of mouth on the entertainment value of the show,” said show General Manager, Peter Gibbon Hansen. “There isn’t another new musical since we opened in 2002 which has lasted as long as Queen & Ben’s show, and last week’s figures show that across the Christmas – New Year period it was the No.1 choice among theatre-goers”.
We Will Rock You's Dominion run is presently booking through to 3 October 2009.
Along with its West End residency the show will also go out on the road this Spring with a five-city regional tour beginning at Manchester Palace theatre on March 25, subsequently reaching Sunderland, Birmingham, Bristol and Edinburgh.
The show opened at the Dominion theatre 14 May 2002, following previews from 26 April 2002. The show has been seen by over 4 million people in London .
It has songs by Queen and book by Ben Elton. It is directed by Christopher Renshaw, choreographed by Arlene Phillips, with designs by Mark Fisher and Willie Williams.

On Planet Mall all musical instruments are banned. The company computers generate the tunes and everyone downloads them. But resistance is growing. Legend persists that somewhere on Planet Mall instruments still exist......
