Queen-inspired musical, ‘We Will Rock You,’ moving to Mahalia Jackson Theater after Hard Rock collapse

“We Will Rock You,” a rock musical experience inspired by Queen’s biggest hit songs, originally scheduled to perform at the Saenger Theater, will relocate to the Mahalia Jackson Theater on Oct. 29.

The traveling musical currently touring North America moves due to the ongoing situation at the Hard Rock Hotel collapse site, Saenger Theater officials announced.

The 2002 rock musical experience features many of Queen’s hits, which resurfaced in popularity following the Oscar-winning film, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Tickets purchased online or by phone through Ticketmaster will automatically be exchanged, and those ticket buyers will receive comparable tickets via email from Ticketmaster.

Tickets purchased at the Saenger Theatre box office will need to be exchanged in person at the Mahalia Jackson Theater box office.  The box office is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets for the Mahalia Jackson Theater performance of We Will Rock You on Tuesday, Oct. 29th will go on sale soon at the Mahalia Jackson Theater box office, Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-982-2787.

“We Will Rock You” follows two revolutionaries, Galileo and Scaramouche, on a quest to save rock n’ roll in a post-apocalyptic world where there are no musical instruments and rock n’ roll has died. They join a small group of societal outcasts, the Bohemians, as they fight to take back the iPlanet from the all-powerful Globalsoft, led by the Killer Queen. They fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of rock ‘n roll.

While “We Will Rock You” is a quirky, eccentric and heartfelt story of outsiders, it’s also a creative cautionary tale for the cyberage. It reflects the scale and spectacle that marked Queen’s live performances and earned the band its pinnacle position in rock history. Show producers say the audience can expect the musical to rock as fiercely as the best of Queen’s concerts.

The original West End production featured music supervision from Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen, fashioned around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs including: “We Are the Champions,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “I Want To Break Free,” “Somebody To Love,” “Killer Queen,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Under Pressure,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites The Dust” and, of course, “We Will Rock You.”
