Wednesday January 13 2010



It's one of the most successful
musicals of the past decade and has been seen by six million people all
over the world to date. Now We Will Rock You by Queen and Ben Elton is finally coming to Ireland -- and there's an added surprise in store for Queen fans.The band's lead guitarist Brian May, who teamed up with drummer Roger Taylor
and comic Ben Elton to put the musical together, will be playing live
in the stage band on the opening night in the O2 venue. All three have
a very hands-on approach to the musical, and in the past Brian has
performed at different opening nights across the world.He tells the Irish Independent:
"I like to keep busy and I think the show is a great night out. It's
also very, very funny, thanks mainly to Ben. It's been in the Dominion
Theatre in London
for the last nine years and is still a huge hit. We were tied into them
for seven years and it was only in 2007 that we were allowed to bring
it out on tour. So we formed a second company and it's always out on
the road."

Nice article.  There were some great moments of reflection from Brian.  Unfortunately, I still haven't seen the musical.  I have the soundtrack though.  As far as I'm aware, the musical, with the exception of Las Vegas, never reached the States.  I think that's a mistake.

I find it sad that journalist doesn't know the difference between astrology and astronomy. What if Brian was a doctor in astrology lol!
