Hey WWRY Friends,
We have some exciting news and we want you to be the first to know.
The incomparable Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen will be returning to Toronto to participate in upcoming episodes of Canadian Idol, the immensely popular TV show broadcast nationwide on CTV.
The two rock legends will "workshop" with this year's Idol competitors. What this means is that they will work with and give advice to the Top 7 finalists.
Brian and Roger will also perform on Canadian Idol.
In all, there will be two "We Will Rock You: The Music of Queen" themed episodes of Canadian Idol broadcast on CTV on August 6 and 7. Mark your calendars now.
Better yet, if you want to be part of the excitement, if you want to be there "live" when Brian and Roger's performance will be taped, we have the inside information:
On the regularly scheduled Wednesday, August 1st performance, Brian and Roger will join the entire company of WE WILL ROCK YOU in Toronto at the Canon Theatre and perform live in the encore of "Bohemian Rhapsody." The seven remaining Canadian Idol finalists will also be part of the encore and Brian and Roger will also perform one extra song, which will be a surprise (we don't even know the song they will choose until that night).
Those of you who have already purchased tickets to the August 1st WE WILL ROCK YOU performance at the Canon Theatre in Toronto are in for an amazing and rare performance.
If you want to be part of this historic event, there are a few seats still available. But hurry, once the news spreads, the tickets will go fast
