Press Release: Tour Dates Rescheduled for 2021


Following the closure of all UK theatres, the 2020 UK tour of Queen & Ben Elton’s smash hit musical ‘We Will Rock You’ has been rescheduled for early 2021.

The producers of ‘We Will Rock You’ did not want to disappoint fans who had bought tickets, so they have been working hard to reschedule as many of the shows as possible giving people something to look forward to in these unsettling times.

We are delighted to announce the good news that the musical extravaganza will once again rock theatres across the UK from January next year, playing many of the original 2020 dates and several additional venues too. Kicking off in Cardiff on 18 January, the tour will then play in Milton Keynes, Southend, Stoke, Bristol, Wimbledon, Bournemouth, Ipswich, Bromley, York, Newcastle, Northampton, Peterborough, Norwich, Reading, Liverpool, Birmingham and Southsea - with more dates to follow. Details of how to exchange tickets will follow in the coming weeks.

Brian May said: “Happy to say our magnificent UK tour of ‘We Will Rock You’, the Rock Theatrical, will rise again! The Coronavirus has had us all on the run - but Live Theatre will win in the end!!! Keep hold of your bookings and The Vibe will be yours in 2021!”

Roger Taylor added: “This is great news, I’m so pleased to see the show on the road again.”

Ben Elton agreed: “I was so pleased to get the great news that ‘We Will Rock You’ is to be remounted next year after being forced to close mid-tour and I hope Queen’s incredible music can help to make us feel like Champions again.”

‘We Will Rock You’ has seen unprecedented success in theatres and arenas all around the world since it began in 2002 and this 2020 UK tour has been no exception. The show has received continuous rave reviews and standing ovations in every town and city it has visited and will be ready to pick up exactly where it left off in January 2021.
