After 12 years on the West End, WE WILL ROCK YOU will close on 31 May 2014 at the Dominion Theatre.
Having rocked over 6.5 million people in a record-breaking 12 years, the smash hit Queen & Ben Elton musical is the longest running show ever at the Dominion Theatre by a margin of nine years, and amongst the Top 10 longest running musicals of all time on the West End stage.
WE WILL ROCK YOU has now been performed in 28 countries around the globe and been seen by a more than 16 million people. In 2011 the show won the prestigious Olivier Audience Award, the only category voted for entirely by the public.
When the show closes on 31 May 2014, WE WILL ROCK YOU will have been performed at the Dominion an astonishing 4,600 times.
Co-creators Brian May, Roger Taylor and Ben Elton said: "We want to thank every one of the many hundreds of incredible musical theatre artists, musicians and crew with whom we've had the privilege of working at the Dominion since 2002. And of course the incredible audiences who have rewarded them with over four and a half thousand standing ovations!”
David Pearson, Dominion Theatre General Manager, commented: “It has been a privilege to have hosted WE WILL ROCK YOU for the past 12 years. To have the show rocking the Dominion and seeing a standing ovation night after night has been quite amazing. We wish the show every success for the future, as we now prepare to accelerate our restoration and refurbishment programme ready to welcome an exciting new production in 2015.”
