The future of ‘We Will Rock You’

On May 28th, 2014, the long-running musical We Will Rock You finally secured the rights to the Queen song catalogue it had been covering under a previous arrangement. This not only allowed the show to continue into the foreseeable future, but also opened up a number of possibilities for new productions and revivals around the world.

The musical, first staged in 2002, tells the story of a group of rebels who fight against an oppressive regime that has outlawed rock music. The score is made up entirely of Queen hits, reworked into new arrangements by award-winning composer Ben Elton.

Under the old arrangement, the rights to perform the songs expired after a certain number of performances, meaning that any future productions would have had to replace them with other material. This was a major stumbling block for many potential producers, as We Will Rock You has become one of the most popular and successful musicals of all time.

The new agreement means that the show can continue to be performed indefinitely, and that producers will no longer have to worry about losing the rights to its key songs. This is great news for fans of the musical, and gives hope that we will see many more productions in years to come.
