Ben Elton is onboard for West End follow-up

Queen are currently planning a sequel to their West End musical ‘We Will Rock You’.

The show, based around the band’s songs, has been running at the Domino Theatre in the heart of London since it opened in 2002, and there have been various spin-off performances around the world.

Now Queen‘s Brian May has announced the band and original scriptwriter Ben Elton are working on a follow-up.

“We have been talking about it for a long time,” the guitarist told The Independent. “Now Ben has supplied us with a fabulous script the train is rolling! Watch out!”

There is currently no indication when the new show will open, or whether it will replace the original ‘We Will Rock You’ on the stage.
