With Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors and 'a band without parallel in the theatre' behind the cast, the audience can expect We Will Rock You to rock as fiercely as the best of Queen’s concerts.

The original Australian tour of We Will Rock You opened at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre in August 2003 with a record advance, and Brian May and Roger Taylor in attendance.

An expansive and dazzling collection of genre-defying bangers, Delirium scored immediate acclaim and climbed the top ten in no less than 14 different countries.
Delirium’s first offering was the Grammy-nominated chartbuster ‘Love Me Like You Do’ that swiftly broke the world record for most streamed song in one week, skyrocketing to #1 in 80 countries including both Australia and New Zealand where it was certified double and triple platinum respectively. The next cut from Delirium was ‘On My Mind’, a swagger-charged anthem that reasserts Ellie as one of music’s most surprising and confident performers. Last month Ellie served the one-two punch of ‘Army’ and ‘Something In The Way You Move’, the former a sweeping ode to authentic friendship and the latter an irresistible thumper - both tracks have critics applauding Delirium as her finest album to date.
