Although at first I thought this was a hoax, it does seem that outside line is actually the registrar for this domain.
@peterkoz1: what is your source (apart from the website) and do you have more details?

ADDED: I found additional information here:

Queen Theatrical Productions, the team behind award winning musical ‘We
Will Rock You’ is preparing to launch the UK’s first ever theatrical
iPhone App.

‘We Will Rock You - The Game’ is a management simulator which puts the
user to the test as the show's producer. By making the right decisions
the user’s goal is to take the production of the smash hit musical We
Will Rock You from a small school hall right up to the real venue at
London's Dominion Theatre.

The game will be free and available worldwide to download at the iTunes App Store in September 2009

Since opening in the West End in May 2002, We Will Rock You has become
a theatrical phenomenon. The London Dominion Theatre production has
remained consistently one of London’s most popular shows among
theatre-goers. Last year, 2008, it achieved the distinction of
achieving the year’s biggest selling week in the West End. The show now
rates as the 9th longest running show in London theatre history,
sharing the top 10 with such theatre landmarks as The Mousetrap, Les
Miserables and Phantom of the Opera.

In addition to the London production, We Will Rock you has been
produced in 12 countries around the world, and earlier this year took
to the road in the UK with a highly successful touring version which in
the coming week moves from a sell-out Birmingham season to play Bristol
and Edinburgh.

The iPhone game is a natural extension to the producers’ Schools Will
Rock You initiative launched in 2006. Originating from show creators
Ben Elton, Brian May and Roger Taylor and the producers of the original
West End show, in a theatre ‘first’, SWRY was set up to encourage the
fostering of musical and drama performance in schools by making
available licences to schools to stage their own production of the hit

Under the programme, Schools Will Rock You was geared to provide the
production tools, expertise, information, and online support to schools
and societies to help them create their own production of the show. To
date, more than 500 schools throughout the UK have participated.

The original producers of We Will Rock You are Phil McIntyre
Entertainment, Queen Theatrical Productions and Robert de Niro’s
Tribeca Productions.

Now, with the iPhone game, anyone can be a producer of their own
version of the show that continues to make a big noise across the globe.

We Will Rock You continues to rock London’s Dominion Theatre booking through to 2010.

The UK touring production opens at Bristol Hippodrome September 16. It reaches Edinburgh Playhouse November 3.

There have been adverts for this in the WWRY show programmes for quite a while.

Will it be as hilarious as the show itself?
