"We attended the opening night of We will rock you, this was the fourth time I have seen this show and each time it has followed a slightly different but up to date script. Last nights performance was simply fantastic, from the set, graphics, acting, singing and most importantly the music, it was superb. I've never seen His Majesties Theatre come alive like that, a brilliantly exhilarating experience so very WELL DONE to everyone involved, you did 'Queen' proud, if only Freddie knew how he has touched us all!."
