“Awful”

Written on: 01/09/2011 by jjulaa (5 reviews written)

Where do I start! Although I would hate to hurt the feelings of the performers in this musical, I have to say it really was awful almost to the point of being unbearable. I went with a large group of people all of whom were equally dissatisfied with the lack of a storyline that made any sense or was related in any way to the songs. It was very very random. There were parts that were clearly supposed to be funny, but unfortunately nobody laughed and very few people clapped at the end of the… Read Full Review

“Very very Disappointing!!”

Written on: 31/08/2011

I went too see this show this week-end and have being looking forward too seeing it for quite some time. It was the worst show I have every gone too see. Poor poor acting, singing was ok only. What I mean by this is if you are a Queen fan, which I am, the singing was no where near the quality you would expect from a show called… Read Full Review

“gordi”

Written on: 15/08/2011 by gordi (1 review written)

So disappointed, I have been dragged up on Queen thanks to my Dad (but have grown to love them) Hearing the songs played so loud does send a shiver down your spine but not one song did the cast do justice too (the male lead in particular was awfull) The story is so thin it is untrue, Ben Elton needs to take a long hard look at himself it was just simply awfull and cringeworthy(Guess we can now guess who actually were the funny writers in the young ones, black adder etc) If you are a Queen… Read Full Review

“Dire.”

Written on: 11/07/2011 by halffullgirl (1 review written)

This show was the biggest pile of rubbish I have ever...endured. I love musicals and I love Queen so how can it have gone so wrong? Anyone who says that this is Glee does Queen is insulting the talented cast of Glee. At least their show is funny and doesn't have awkward tumbleweed moments! God, the jokes were crass and repetitive, the leading lady's sarcasm was so incessant that I nearly stormed the stage and punched her in the face, and they killed off the only decent character/human being at… Read Full Review

“Awfull, really awful........Queen fans stay away !!! ”

Written on: 08/07/2011 by Jenfav (1 review written)

What a big disappointment....!!!! I love Queen's music, but this show did absolutely nothing for us in respect of Queen's music... There was absolutely NO atmosphere , and the one person who did clap during the first half, was looked at by everyone and instantly stopped. It was like a cross between Glee / Karaoke / high school musical. It had more amusing moments than musical moments, but i went to a musical not a comedy !! Ok to be fair the actual singing was good, but the story very week and… Read Full Review

“Good start could be better”

Written on: 30/05/2011 by wewillrocku (1 review written)

Grew up loving queen songs. Wasn't really true to the story of queen or the band at all. Had an american guy singing freddies greatest tunes in a cheesy american accent - not good. The leading lady had a superb voice, but was like a limp lettuce on stage. The two characters of black/african origin were excellent! The futuristic story line was a good one, but what did it have to do with queen???… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/05/2011 by Musicloverlover (1 review written)

When I was younger I was a huge fan of Queen's music and Ben Elton's comedy. This show has basicly managed to pee all over that. What a complete and utter load of rubbish, it was the longest 2 and a half hours that I have spent in the Mayflower theatre. When the interval came I managed to get 2 pints down my throat to numb the pain and if I hadnt been with family and friends I would have gone home after half an hour of this complete tripe.

“This is a great musical for kids and carefree adults....”

Written on: 07/05/2011 by Neil9327 (3 reviews written)

This is a great musical for kids and carefree adults. As someone said earlier it is basically a remake of "Glee" or "Grease" but using the music of Queen. Quite camp.
But it is definitely not made for real "Queen" fans, or indeed any "rock music" type of people, who would regard this musical as an insult or at very least a sissy adaptation (who wants to see Justin Bieber or Britney Spears types of people, when they were hoping for Ozzie Osborne or Iggy Pop)

I think there ought to be a "Queen"… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2011

As a massive theatre goer I'd been wanting to see this for years but never quite got round to it. When I saw it was on at my local theatre I booked two tickets for the opening night which happened to by my husbands birthday. WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH. Awful. I spend the whole of the first half willing for the interval to arrive so I could talk my husband into leaving. As it happened I didn't have to do much to talk him into it as he felt the same way. Think there were some very talented… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2011

i really enjoyed the show the music is fab and i am a great fan of queen. I thought the two who played the lading roles were fab. The story line and jokes were cheesey but i still had a laugh. Rhydian was good in his role but was expecting more singing from him as he has a fantastic vouce.Al in all very enjoyable… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/04/2011

I saw the show in London, just before Christmas last year and was so impressed, I'm going to see it again in Cardiff...this time, taking my kids and husband with me!

The storyline was nothing like I expected. It's futuristic and reminiscent of Rush's '2112' where rock music is banned. I wonder if that's where Ben Elton got the inspiration for it?

Some of the costumes are tatty, in a goth/grunge/punky sort of way, but they're meant to be. They reflect the characters identities...they're… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2011

My husband and I went to 'we will rock you' to celebrate our second anniversary. I am not a rock fan myself, but went because my husband was so excited to watch the show.

It is HORRIFIC! DISGUSTING AND AWEFUL to say the least!

Our disappointment was so high, we walked out in the intermission,

There was not only no storyline, but no show or entertainment, a couple of ugly voices singing ugly songs and wearing ugly clothes!

There was nothing memorable from this musical except how BAD IT… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2011

I am a big Queen fan and me and my fianc went to see the show in the Wales Millennium Center in Cardiff, we were both greatly disappointed to say the least, all in all the singing talent is excellent but the story line is pretty pathetic and the humour is very childish at best. The only way I can describe the show is GLEE DOES QUEEN. We only paid around £20 per ticket and were really glad we didn't pay anymore. The best part of the show was seeing Brian May come out on stage and perform 30… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2011

We Will Rock You is by far the best musical I have ever seen. I am very rarely speechless, but having seen this I was lost for words for a fair while! The cast is extremely powerful, the vocals are incredible, and the set and production are amazing. From the opening scene I was on the edge of my seat. I took my younger sister, who at 11 is too young to be overly familiar with Queen music, and she was dancing and watching with an open mouth throughout. The storyline I felt was, contrary to other… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2011

Wish I had seen this site before I went to the show -- would have saved me about 30 quid.

I've seen literally over a hundred musicals in my lifetime, too many to remember. This is the first time EVER in my life I walked out of a show, BEFORE INTERMISSION even. I lasted about an hour, debated whether I wanted to watch anymore of this, or go to bed in my hotel. Bed in my hotel won out.

Like a lot of people also say in their reviews, the singing talent is EXCELLENT. The story, dialog, jokes… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/03/2011

Great fun. Don't expect the strongest story or the cleverest jokes - you won't get them. But expect enormous fun and great songs, well performed, and excellent dancers. Go along, enjoy it, laugh at the jokes (especially in the second half), clap along, sing along and come out remembering why you love Queen's music and with a smile on your face. I'd recommend it as a fun, cheesy, show. Take your friends and have a good night out!… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2011

I have seen more than 15 musicals and this was the first one I have ever walked out of. I left at the interval and I don't think I was the only one. The girl who played Scaramouche (I think she's called Danielle Hope) had very questionable vocals. The "humour" in the show is at best infantile and is based on the crude and spewing out various song lyrics which is not very inventive. A muscle bound bloke called Leon Lewis spent most of his time on stage doing a gun show. If I wanted to watch that… Read Full Review

“Absolutely outstanding show and performances. ”

Written on: 24/03/2011

Absolutely outstanding show and performances.
True - the story line is thin, but you can't really consider yourself a fan of rock if you don't like this. 3 hours of hits get the crowds to an ecstatic level, which is truly something for a musical!

In case you are a fan of Queen and classic rock music I will quote someone else: "Just go!"... Bring your best mood and be prepared to be blown away!… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2011

This was easily the worst show my boyfirend and I have ever seen 'Kentucky-fried cr*p' to quote one of the irritating and puerile lines from the script. We left at half time. The story is weak, the dialogue is poor and quite honestly it is deeply uncomfortable watching. Having seen excellent shows like Oliver! this won't put me off musicals, but it has put me right off anything written by Ben Elton. He should be ashamed… Read Full Review
