We Will Rock You Reviews
Allan Evans from Wigan,
A HIGH SCHOOL PLAY AT BEST
My wife and I were so looking forward to this. Went to the Empire tonight... as usual a belting venue! We Will Rock You.... Absolute rubbish! It was like watching a high school play. The lads sang quietly and the girls screeched their way through what should be Queen hits. Poor Freddy will be spinning in his grave! You could not hear any of the words being sung. So bad we left at the interval! Ben Elton's attempt at adding humour just doesn't work. In my opinion save your money for Shrek in December.

WE WILL DEAFEN YOU
We waited 2 yrs due to Covid so were looking forward to the show. Great views but music was way too loud so singers had to scream the songs out spoiling the effect. Not keen on much of the script, jokes incredibly corny and at times disrespectful, by referring to Queen as girls. Dancing was very amateur and the choreography could be much improved. The sets were bleak and the entire production rather negative. If you’re a hardened Queen fan I don’t think this will be for you. Sorry to the cast, which included some talented singers. You can only work with what you’re given.

WE WILL ROCK YOU
Not good.It was a bizarre storyline and was like a year 6 production at school.

SEEN BETTER SCHOOL PLAYS
Oh dear! Story line was awful, singers were a mixed bag, women a lot stronger than the men. Acting especially poor, jokes, if you can call them that, were pathetic and tbh so bad it was embarrassing! We, along with quite a few others left either before or during the interval! However much we tried to enjoy it, wasn't going to happen! Seriously, save your money! 😒
Dave Harris from Bristol,
SIXTH FORM PRODUCTION
Went on a Friday evening to the Bristol Hippodrome. Swathes of drunk groups, some of whom were ejected by security. Never seen anything like it in all my years of theater going. The show was awful. Terrible production values. The set was basic. The entire cast couldn't dance more than 3 steps in time. Female leads shrieking out the hits drowning out the weak male counterparts. Still none the wiser as to what the storyline was. The jokes seem to consist of song titles woven into poorly scripted chatter. Honestly. One of the worst shows I've seen, only made better by the fact I left at the interval and had a pint with the wife discussing how hilariously shoddy the whole thing was. I've seen better Christmas pantomimes at my kids primary schools. Queens hits have little or nothing to do with this monstrosity. Butchered every one.
L M from Bristol,
I hate to write a negative comment as I’m sure each member of the cast worked incredibly hard BUT it was a truly awful show. The script was dreadful. I’ve seen pantomimes that showed more depth of storyline. In general, the entire show came across as am dram which was disappointing considering the pedigree of the cast. Really not worth the 3 hour traffic jam on the M5 or the price!
Sue from Bristol,
Was really excited to see this. The lead characters were good singers but the sound was awful. We were in row G in expensive seats but the loud band drowned out singers. I knew the story line was nonsense but was expecting some great songs and a feel good evening. Like other reviewers we left at half time. Waste of money.
