“We Will Rock You” close on 31st May
What now for the stars of the show?
After 12 Years on the West End, the hugely popular show, ‘We will rock you’ will be closing for the final time. Although with 4500 performances and 6.6 million tickets sold across 12 years, what will the musicians do now?
WELL, THE TIME IS NOW AND THE BAND IS SPACE ELEVATOR!
Musicians from the popular west end show are collaborating with a new lead singer known as The Duchess to form the next best thing in British rock.
The Space Elevator line up have also worked in other West End shows including Rock of Ages, Rocky Horror, Wicked, Footloose, The Sound Of Music, Flashdance and Quadrophenia but now the focus is on the new music.
A final question was put to lead singer The Duchess…as to whether it was the show that gave them the Space Elevator idea? She commented that
When asked whether it was the show that gave them the Space Elevator idea, The Duchess replied with “the music of Queen massively influenced Space Elevator’s sound, Freddie’s voice and Brian’s guitar especially, plus the bombastic theatrical sound of Queen. The song We Are The Losers is a complete homage to the sound of Queen with an obvious nod to We Are The Champions!”
Space Elevator consist of guitarist David Young (We Will Rock You/Curved Air), Elliott Ware (The Who/Rock of Ages/We Will Rock You/Sunny Afternoon) on keys, Neil Murray (Whitesnake/Black Sabbath/Gary Moore/The Brian May Band, We Will Rock You) on bass and Brian Greene (George Benson/Curved Air) on drums along with mysterious lead singer “The Duchess”.
