There may be more where the hit Queen musical "We Will Rock You" came from.
Guitarist Brian May tells the BBC that the group and writer/director Ben Elton are "working on a sequel, yes. In fact we've already very secretly and quietly work-shopped it...And everybody loved it, so we're looking for a theater and we hope to have a sequel out there 'at some point.' More than this I cannot say."
"We Will Rock You," which weaves Queen's songs into a plot about rebels in an Orwellian future, ranks as the longest-running musical ever at London's Dominion Theatre and played in 14 other nations before its current run through North America. It’s won theater awards in five of those countries -- including the Theatergoers Choice Award for Best New Musical and the Laurence Olivier Audience Award for Most Popular Show In Britain -- and box office figures have been as staggering as Queen's own record sales, which weigh in at an estimated 300 million worldwide. A company is currently touring in North America, and a film adaptation is rumored though has taken second seat behind a planned Freddie Mercury biopic.
Queen begins a tour with Adam Lambert fronting the group on June 19 in Chicago.
