This is my first time in London and I just saw this musical last night. Obviously, I went because I'm a huge Queen fan....um, yeah wow...that was one of the coolest shows I've ever seen. Very, very cool! Does anyone know if there are any plans for an American tour of the show? I would LOVE to see it again.

So glad I saw that, it wasn't planned. I just went to the box office a few hours before and bought a ticket and got 3rd row. That'll be a show I'll never forget!

I haven't heard anything about an American tour. I saw it about two years ago (at least I think it was two years ago). Quite Good. I wasn't blown over by it. I'm just not a big fan of musicals that just spring up from putting together an artist or groups songs. Mamma Mia is worse.
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

They may because. I was looking at Playbill.com's job thing or whatever, and it said needed performers for "We will rock you." I really want to see it.

Though am not too mad about the show itself with the ridiculous story line, but there were/are some incredible performers in the show. Already to see people as Jenna Lee James or Mazz Murray is worth seeing it!

I completely agree that the storyline was ridiculous (saw it in Vegas), but the show was really fun and entertaining, almost like a rock concert. It was a "rock theatrical". Tony Vincent was great as Galileo and so was the rest of the cast. I just wish that I could actually see the full 2+ hour version in London with an intermission! I love Queen and I thought the show was mindless fun!

The show is what it is....but as a soundtrack, it is senseational.....the OLC is fabulous.....the arrangements/orchestrations and the performers...... Kerry Ellis must be mentioned, of course, as her version of No-one But You was so freaking great!!
