We Will Rock You Wins Olivier Award!

Guitars will be thrashed in celebration as long-running Queen musical We Will Rock You wins the BBC Radio 2 Olivier Audience Award.

The rock musical, which has called the Dominion theatre home since 2002, triumphed in the only category decided entirely by members of the public who have been voting via www.olivierawards.com

We Will Rock You, which features the music of British rock royalty Queen alongside a story by Ben Elton, is set in a futuristic world where rock music is banned and where a group of rebels, the Bohemians, hope for a hero.

The axe-wielding, leather-clad, voluminously-coiffured musical came out top in the category which saw more than 43,000 votes cast, beating a shortlist including Billy Elliot The Musical, Jersey Boys and Les Misérables.

Thanks to all who voted!
