Fans urged to buy tickets now as final seats remain for January smash hit

The Winter Gardens Blackpool has released extra tickets to cope with demand for the 2020 Blackpool tour date of Queen and Ben Elton’s smash hit musical We Will Rock You, set to rock the Opera House Blackpool from Monday 06 – Saturday 11 January 2020.


Since going on sale earlier this year, rapid ticket sales have made it one of the best and fastest selling shows so far of 2019/2020. Following the sell out of both Saturday performances and only a limited number of tickets remaining to the Friday, the balcony has been released for the midweek performances to cope with demand.


Since 2002 over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by We Will Rock You’s awe-inspiring production showcasing a number of Queen’s finest hits, including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and, of course, We Will Rock You. Before closing its glorious 12 year run at London’s Dominion Theatre, the show was performed an astonishing 4600 times.


Michael Williams, Managing Director, Winter Gardens said: “This show has sold quickly from the first release date and is set to be one of the busiest runs of recent months. Ticket sales haven’t dropped off

and with now only a few weeks left before the cast arrive to rock the Opera House it will certainly be one of our star performers.”


Featuring 24 of Queen’s biggest hits and Ben Elton’s hilarious futuristic comedy writing, We Will Rock You boasts the scale and spectacle that marked the band’s legendary live performances. This global phenomenon will continue to be one of the most spectacular musicals to tour the United Kingdom & Ireland.

Taking on the role of Galileo is Olivier Award nominee Ian McIntosh (Beautiful – The Carole King Musical / The Commitments), who will be joined by Elena Skye (Les Misérables / Kinky Boots) in the role of Scaramouche. Playing Killer Queen is Jenny O’Leary (Heathers The Musical / Rent), with Michael McKell (Macbeth / Blood Brothers) as Buddy. Adam Strong (Jesus Christ Superstar / Rock of Ages) will take on the role of Khashoggi, with David-Michael Johnson (We Will Rock You, Germany / Jesus Christ Superstar) reprising the role of Brit and Amy Di Bartolomeo (Bat Out of Hell / Priscilla Queen of the Desert) playing Oz.
