We Will Rock You in London
This epic show finally closed in its 10th year of ga-ga rhapsodies. We Will Rock You is the Queen musical that dominated the London Theatre scene for so long.
It’s a safe, happy, Ga-Ga world. Everywhere the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions, think the same thoughts and listen to the same music: on Planet Mall, all musical instruments are banned and the Company Computers generate the tunes and the kids download them.
It’s an age of Boy Bands and Girl Bands. Of Boy and Girl Bands. Of Girl Bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway. Hits are scheduled years in advance, but resistance is growing!
An underground movement of music lovers is looking for a leader to take them out of the subway and into the real world of rock ‘n’ roll: enter Galileo.

Nearest Hotels to the Dominion Theatre
The closest hotel to the Dominion theatre is the 3 * St Giles Hotel. Its central position and excellent facilities make this a great base for a theatre break. Some of the rooms are a bit small, but this is only a three star hotel in the very centre of the West End where space is a premium so what do you expect. I’ve stayed there twice and would do again quite happily.
If you like a bit of posh, or you are celebrating a special occassion and you want a 4 star hotel then the Radisson Edwardian Kenilworth or Bloomsbury Street are also just behind the Dominion on the junction of Great Russell Street and Bloomsbury Street.
And if you don’t fancy one of those (although goodness knows why) then there is the 4* Rathbone Hotel just the other side of Tottenham Court Road and in Bloomsbury, around the British Museum there is an excellent collection of smaller 4* townhouse hotels – the Montague has got to be the pick of the bunch.
Pre-Theatre Dinner Deals for We Will Rock You
Lastly, if you don’t fancy staying overnight at all, or if you have already booked your hotel, or you are staying with friends (or you already live in London!) then we have a good range of ticket and dinner packages available.

gets better and better: great music - obviously - and the story is terrible so all in all a great night out.

The music of Queen is outstanding and that alone is the best part of this show [We Will Rock You]. Took 2 teenage boys with me, who loved this show. For me, the story was so silly, it felt like an 11 yr old had written it. This I found very irritating and it didn't get any better through the show.

Ben Elton's Musical bonanza celebrating the music of Queen does it exactly what it says on the tin, it will rock your socks off!
A journey to the future where individualism and alas, rock music is strictly forbidden!
The story follows the two main protaganists, Galileo and Scaramouche as they embark on an mission to bring back what was lost along side a string of Queen hits.
The three female leads in the musical all were similar and quite ear bursting at some points. I also think the choreography of the dancing was messy and hard to focus on. The stage was bere and too big, sometimes the cast would be wandering around on stage looking lost whilst singing and repeating the same actions.
If your a Queen fan then this musical is for you, the references to Queen lyrics and other famous artists was funny. I saw the musical five years ago when it first opened and have to say that it was much better then. I would recommened to sit in the stalls as you feel much more part of the action there. Even if you are not a fan of the music of Queen you will enjoy it as a musical on its own.
