I think this show had great potential to be great. And there was certain elements that I enjoyed but many were over done and over played.
The show is set in the future, where kids don’t listen to “real” music (although I resent the fact that there is something that defines if music is “real or not”). Among these deprived children there are two rebels who believe there is more out there then the GaGa world. One of the rebels was a “dreamer” who dreamed of music lyrics. The other had no…

Don’t wish for plot. Don’t wish for character development. But if you have a hankering for real rock music, We Will Rock You is in town. Join hundreds of Queen-lovers for the product of Queen (music & lyrics) and Ben Elton (Story & Script) at the Orpheum theatre in Downtown Minneapolis. Set in the plot of a stereotypical musical romance, the real star of the show is Queen’s powerful (and often deafening) music. But beware, it may contain some dangerously valid arguments about the…Continue
Upon arriving at the Orpheum on Tuesday night, I had no idea what to expect from We Will Rock You. But it’s fair to say that awful computer-generated graphics, two-dimensional characters, and an underwhelming plot isn’t what I had anticipated.
We Will Rock You is the story of Galileo, or “Gal” for short, who lives in a futuristic society without rock or any kind of individuality. Gal teams up with…Continue
We Will Rock You was yet another, additional disappointment to the jukebox musical theatre collection. This somewhat tribute to the rock legend Queen fell just short of its potential with such a distasteful storyline and script. Vocally, the show was phenomenal consisting of pure, natural talent. Unfortunately, all of the talent in the world could not save a show with a plot such as this one. It was inconsistent, and altogether very difficult to grasp. The musical takes place in the…Continue
We Will Rock You, a futuristic setting in which rock music has been outlawed by GlobalSoft, a company who seemingly took over Earth and censored everything they did not agree with such as rock music and free thinking. This show was meant to be a massive tribute to the marvelous band Queen with a well written story-line to pair. Or so was attempted with the end result being a patched together, sub-par musical that has managed to make its way onto the Broadway…Continue
We Will Rock You Review
Freddy Mercury is turning in his grave as the cult musical We Will Rock You, originally produced on West End, now tours America. The musical, based on the songs of British…Continue
First and foremost if you are epileptic please do not see this show. There is no epilepsy warning on this show. The lights can induce seizures and this show is not worth it. The lights were one of my biggest problems with the show. It is a musical not a rock concert. At a lot of points throughout the show the lights passed through the audience which is not only distracting but blinding. You can still have the effect of the lights without making it hard to watch the show. In the…Continue
I had not been looking forward to seeing “We Will Rock You.” Believe me, I love Queen, but I read the summary and listened to the soundtrack, and I hadn’t really cared for either of them that much. “We Will Rock You” is a jukebox musical that uses Queen songs to try to tell a story. The show was written by Ben Elton in 2002, and all the songs are written by Queen. “We Will Rock You” is set exactly 300 years in the future in a world controlled by a single corporation, where music is outlawed…Continue
I don’t want to say I hated it, but I did in fact hate it.
I saw We Will Rock You at the Orpheum Theater. It is running from November 19th through the 24th.
We Will Rock You is the story of a future without rock and roll when earth is under the control of a music-oppressing former video game…Continue
I didn’t like We Will Rock You, I do, however, like Queen.
Yeaah, they’re kind of campy, and kind of overplayed, but, I do appreciate them a lot. Of course, there’s Freddie’s vocals, and then there’s the fact that they had a strange talent for producing earbugs.
There’s plenty of people with good singing voices, but very few can take their…Continue

We Will Rock You rocks, pun intended. It’s a brilliant show with brilliant music, brilliantly woven…
We Will Rock You
We Won’t Rock You
I think the title explains my opinion of the show. This was not a show I would pay regular ticket price for. I would maybe spend $25 for rush ticket, but not full price. I saw the show We Will Rock You on Opening Night last Tuesday at the Orpheum theatre. It was a story of a future dystopia where everyone acts, thinks, and sings the same thing. There’s no creativity or rock and roll allowed. It’s there we…Continue
We Will Rock You opened in Minneapolis on Tuesday night at the Orpheum Theatre. The music, both instrumentals and singing (especially from the leads) was spectacular. So good that I did not even realize the other elements of the show were below average until the curtains closed for a last time.
The dilemma in the story line was that in the future all the music creativity has been taken away. People only made music electronically, with the sole motive being profit. This was…Continue

Having never heard of the musical We Will Rock You before the performance, I was very pleased to hear that the story included music from the British rock band Queen! The musical is focused on a futuristic world in which a group of Bohemians struggle to bring back the free exchange of thought, style, and music while everyone else dresses, acts and thinks the same exact…Continue
On Tuesday, November 19, I went to see We Will Rock You at the Orpheum in Minneapolis. It’s a dystopian story where kids are being held slaves by the internet and rock and roll is banned, as is any music not created by the government, set to music by the band, Queen. I didn’t have super high expectations for the show and I wasn’t wrong.
There were some good things to the show. One of these things was the singing. All the singers were amazing, especially Erica Peck, who played Oz,…
Rock musicals are clearly the only thing better than musicals. That in mind, I was utterly exited to witness We Will Rock You- a new musical featuring hit music from Queen. The show follows outcast high school graduates Galileo Figaro and Scaramouche as they journey through the iplanet-once known as earth- in a search to find the ancient art form of rock music. With a live rock band, projections galore and eye-wrecking strobe lights, this…Continue
