We Will Rock You Uk tour rescheduled to 2021 with new dates for Queen musical | Music | Entertainment


The Queen musical ran for 12 years from 2002 to 2014 at the Dominion Theatre in London, but has since had a revival in the form of a UK tour. Sadly, We Will Rock You’s 2020 dates have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, new and extra dates have been announced for 2021, starting in Cardiff on January 18 and finishing in Southsea on June 5.

A statement read: “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.”

Meanwhile, Queen and Adam Lambert’s 2020 UK and European tour has been postponed to 2021 as well.

Previous ticket holders can transfer to the newly announced dates, which look very much the same as before, but just a year on.

The trio will perform in the UK during June 2021, with dates in London, Manchester and Birmingham.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Queen, so understandably, the band were “devastated”, but at least post-pandemic dates are now in place.
