Queen musical We Will Rock You is coming back to the West End 21 years after its debut.
The explosive production opened at London's Dominion Theatre way back in 2002, and after a massive 12 years there went on tour the UK and the rest of the world multiple times.

It will return next year for a limited 12-week run from June 2 to August 26, 2023 at the London Coliseum.
Tickers for the new run of We Will Rock You are on sale now via wewillrockyoulondon.co.uk.
We Will Rock You's writer and returning director Ben Elton said: "I'm thrilled we finally have this opportunity to put We Will Rock You back on stage in London, where it was born.
"The show’s original message of the fight to re-establish individuality in a dystopian corporate world is even more relevant now than when we began."
He added: "It will be a completely new production that will burst on to the prestigious London Coliseum stage – but the story, the humour, and of course the Queen music, will hit you harder than ever. We WILL Rock You – again!!
"I hope somebody's squared this with English Heritage because the fabulous London Coliseum is a Grade II listed theatre and We Will Rock You is gonna blow the roof off."
Queen's drummer Roger Taylor said: "Bigger, better, faster, funnier! Here we go again… yeaaaaaaaah!"
The production features 24 massive Queen hits smooshed together by a whimsical sci-fi story, while surviving Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor have dropped by on occasion over the years to perform during its encores.
