BAND ANNOUNCED FOR THE AUSTRALIAN TOUR!
INTRODUCING THE CHAMPIONS HAND-PICKED BY QUEEN’S OWN ROGER TAYLOR & BRIAN MAY!
Producers of the new Australian production of the worldwide smash hit musical WE WILL ROCK YOU, John Frost, Queen Theatrical Productions, Phil McIntyre Entertainment and Tribeca Theatrical Productions, today announced the members of the band. Queen’s own Brian May and Roger Taylor have hand-picked the virtuoso band members they trust with their classic songs, and who will travel with the show for the entire Australian tour.
The band will be led by musical director Dave Skelton who also plays Keys 1. On guitars will be James Barber and Simon Croft, with Andrew Swann on drums, Mark Costa on bass, and James Mack on percussion. Also on keyboards will be Michael Azzopardi and Assistant Musical Director Tim Cunniffe. For individual band member biographies, click here.
John Frost, on behalf of his co-producers, said, “The band for WE WILL ROCK YOU is an integral part of the show, onstage during the production. Band members must be approved by the members of Queen before they are appointed. Our two guitarists for example, auditioned for Brian and Roger and were cast in the original Australian production of WE WILL ROCK YOU, and have since performed in the show all around the world because they are two of the top guitarists in the world.”
With Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors and “a band without parallel in the theatre” behind the cast, the audience can expect WE WILL ROCK YOU to rock as fiercely as the best of Queen’s concerts.
