GMG Productions and Selladoor Worldwide are thrilled to announce that for the very first time ever, the global phenomenon that is We Will Rock You will be coming to Manila this October! This brand new, reimagined production directed and choreographed by Olivier Award nominee Nick Winston is kicking off a multi-year international tour and audiences in the Philippines will be the first people in the world to witness it.
“The original production has been seen by over 16 million people worldwide. We can’t think of a better title to come back with after such a long intermission – and there is no better place to launch the show than the Philippines. We know Filipino audiences love Queen and Queen music,” shares GMG Productions CEO and We Will Rock You producer Carlos Candal.

The show is set to be staged in the newly constructed Samsung Performing Arts Theatre located in Circuit Makati.
“We are incredibly excited to premiere the show in Manila and for us to play host to all the international producers visiting from around the world.” Mr. Candal continues, “…we want to put the Philippines on the map as a hub for theatrical productions. We know the Philippines has the talent and now we are spoilt for choice when it comes to venues! It feels like things are falling into place. ”
We Will Rock You follows two revolutionaries as they try to save rock n roll in a post-apocalyptic world. In an age where algorithms predict our every preference, We Will Rock You is a musical for our time: a fist-pumping, foot-stomping anthem to individuality.
We Will Rock You is produced by Selladoor Worldwide, Carlos Candal, Gavin Kalin Productions, Limelight Productions and ShowTime Management South Africa.
This brand new international rock-powered production features 24 of Queen’s biggest hits, including “Killer Queen,” “Under Pressure,” “We Are the Champions,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “I Want to Break Free,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” and, of course, “We Will Rock You.” With a futuristic styled set and video backdrop from Tom Rogers and fabulous new costumes from Sarah Mercade, this is sure to be an absolute smash hit.
