READY TO ROCK: We Will Rock You – The Arena Experience is coming to Newcastle

Ben Elton’s award-winning musical We Will Rock You has been transformed into an arena spectacular that will hit the Newcastle Entertainment Centre in January 2024.

Featuring over 500 performers We Will Rock You – The Arena Experience brings the music of Queen, including Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust, I Want to Break Free, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Somebody To Love, Under Pressure and A Kind of Magic back to an area setting.

The show features Mass Staging by Maureen Bowra with Nigel Turner-Carroll as Associate Director, Music Direction by Dennett Hudson, Stage Design by Frances Story, Lighting Design by Trudy Dalgleish and Sound Design by John Taylor.

“This show is a celebration of some of the best rock music ever written – it’s just hit after hit after hit! For the last two decades,” CEO of AVT Live Entertainment Group, Tim O’Connor said.

“We Will Rock You has played in theatres all over the world, bringing the music of Queen into a more traditional theatre setting.

“With this show, we’re taking it back where it belongs, into an arena setting with pumping sound and lights and all the energy of a rock concert that we’ve so missed through the pandemic. Rock is back, baby, and we will rock you!”

The We Will Rock You – The Arena Experience tour opens at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in January 2023 and will roll into Newcastle Entertainment Centre on 19 – 21 January 2024. Tickets for the Newcastle shows will be on sale soon. Visit to find out more.
