mark your calendars:
"we will rock you"-- the rock theatrical album in stores nov. 11th
bbc's "children in need" telethon nov. 15th (check your local listings for specific times)
greetings and blessings to you all from a very damp and cold central londontown. things have been busy on all fronts, but the reason for this update is to let you all know that (finally) the music from "we will rock
you"--the rock theatrical--hits stores on monday, november 11th. i've had the privilege of hearing a pre-release of the record this week, and i'm truly excited for you all to get to experience this music not just from inside the dominion theatre.
the thing that thrills me the most about this album is that it was recorded completely live during three separate performances. everyone wanted to retain the excitement and the magic of the live performance of our show. we felt this could only be accomplished if we recorded the project
completely live. Brian May has been painstakingly working on this record in his studio-- making sense of the hundreds (if not thousands) of hours of recorded material that went to tape.
not only does the recording showcase the amazing talent of our cast and band, but it also breaks the mold of the standard "cast album." it is a full-on rock/pop record-- one that is not only an amazing sounding album,
but is also vibrant, exciting, full of emotion and incredibly moving. listeners will get to experience much of what the audience does each night at the dominion theatre. when you hear it, i think you'll agree that a new
standard has been set for cast albums; the bar has been raised.
spread the word. let your family and friends know that monday, november 11th is the magical day!

also, on friday, november 15th, we will be performing on the bbc's huge charity telethon here in the uk called "children in need". this organization "...provides practical and lasting support to thousands of youngsters aged 18 and under, including those that have disabilities or psychological
disorders, and those who have encountered serious illness, abuse, poverty or neglect... making a positive difference to children's lives." we will still be performing our normal show on the 15th, but we'll then move on to the bbc studios to perform what at the moment stands as: "another one bites the dust", "we will rock you" and "we are the champions." rumor has it that even brian may and roger taylor will be joining us...
