'Exciting new production' to replace We Will Rock You

The Dominion Theatre's General Manager David Pearson said it had been a privilege to have hosted We Will Rock You for the past 12 years, adding:

"To have the show rocking the Dominion and seeing a standing ovation night after night has been quite amazing.

"We wish the show every success for the future, as we now prepare to accelerate our restoration and refurbishment programme ready to welcome an exciting new production in 2015."

Queen musical to end after 4,500 standing ovations

We want to thank every one of the many hundreds of incredible musical theatre artists, musicians and crew with whom we've had the privilege of working at the Dominion since 2002.

And of course the incredible audiences who have rewarded them with over four and a half thousand standing ovations.
