Following the closure of all UK theatres during the coronavirus crisis, the 2020 UK tour of Queen & Ben Elton’s We Will Rock You has been rescheduled for early 2021, playing many of the original 2020 dates and several additional venues too.

The tour was originally due to open at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre this September. It will now kicking off in Cardiff on 18 January 2021 and 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.

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. Details of how to exchange tickets will follow in the coming weeks.

Queen’s Roger Taylor said: “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.”
