Queen Musical Opens at Hippodrome Tonight With Guitarist Brian May

Baltimore or Less – We had no interest in seeing the much-maligned Queen musical “We Will Rock You” – which in 2002 opened in London’s West End to scathing reviews before crossing the pond in 2004 for its lone American run in the more forgiving pomp-and-romp theatrical circuit of Las Vegas – which kicks off its first North American tour this week with a five-day, eight-performance run at Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theater. But now comes word that Queen guitarist-cum-astrophysicist Brian May will not only be in town, but also on stage for the show’s opening this Tuesday, October 15th, at 8 p.m.

“They really don’t need me,” May was quoted telling the Baltimore Sun’s Tim Smith in a phone interview from Las Vegas. “It’s really a cast-iron show. But I’ve got to be there on opening night, and if I’m there, I would rather participate than just be an uncle to the show. I’d like to get out there and interact with the cast.”
