THERE is exciting news for fans of Queen and Abba with the announcement that tickets soon go on sale for two blockbuster mega-musicals We Will Rock You (20 Apr – 2 May 2020) and MAMMA MIA! (12 -31 May 2020) at The Birmingham Hippodrome.
Following triumphant 2009 and 2011 UK theatre tours and a 2013 10th anniversary world arena tour, the smash hit Queen and Ben Elton musical, We Will Rock You returns to Birmingham in a reimagined production.
Since 2002 over 15 million theatre-goers in 17 countries have been thrilled by the show’s awe-inspiring production showcasing a number of Queen’s finest hits, including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and, of course, We Will Rock You.
Producer of We Will Rock You, Phil McIntyre said: “We are really looking forward to bringing this true Rock Theatrical back to the Birmingham Hippodrome. We had standing ovations night after night last time round, so we can’t wait to see that happen all over again. May the Rhapsody play on forever!”
The sensational feel-good musical MAMMA MIA! will return to Birmingham Hippodrome as part of a UK Tour celebrating 20 years since the record-breaking production premiered in London in April 1999.
From West End to global phenomenon, MAMMA MIA! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious vision of staging the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs with a sunny, funny tale of a mother, a daughter and three possible dads unfolding on a Greek island idyll. To date, it has been seen by over 60 million people in 50 productions in 16 different languages.
Fiona Allan, Artistic Director and Chief Executive at Birmingham Hippodrome said: “The arrival of these two major musical juggernauts in 2020 continues Birmingham Hippodrome’s reputation for bringing the very best in theatre and live entertainment to Midlands audiences.
We Will Rock You (20th April – 2nd May 2020) and MAMMA MIA! (12th -31st May 2020) will go on sale to Hippodrome Friends and Patrons on 11th March, groups on 26th March and on general sale from 2nd April.
