The first North American touring version of the Queen musical, We Will Rock You, opens tonight (Tuesday) in Baltimore.

The show originated in London's West End in 2002 and is still playing there, as well as touring in other parts of the world. It played in Las Vegas in 2004, but did not last very long, and in Toronto in 2007, but this is its first coast-to-coast tour. Brian May will attend tonight's opening with Roger Taylor. He tells us, "It's been a phenomenal success. Way, way more than we ever expected."

We Will Rock You runs in Baltimore through Sunday, and then it's off to Chicago. It's scheduled through next August in Los Angeles.
