THE EVENT: the 10th anniversary of We Will Rock You, the musical based on Queen’s greatest hits.
THE HOST: Queen Theatrical Productions.
THE VENUE: the Dominion Theatre.
THE FOOD: crowd-pleasing street market-style bites at the after-show party included paella, Thai green chicken curry served with jasmine rice, and aromatic vegetable tagine with citrus couscous. For dessert, there were chocolate brownies, Sicilian lemon tarts, Valrhona chocolate tart, carrot cake and pretty little cupcakes.
TO DRINK: a no-nonsense line-up of Champagne, beer, wine and soft drinks.
WE LOVED: the show’s thundering finale, when Brian May stormed out soloing with his guitar and Roger Taylor rose from beneath the stage playing a stadium-worthy drum kit.
THE TALKING POINT: the A-list attendance (we stood next to Robert De Niro at the bar).
ON THE GUEST LIST: Brian May and Roger Taylor from Queen, Ben Elton, Robert De Niro, Nick Mason from Pink Floyd, Mike Rutherford from Genesis and a string of other celebs and industry professionals.
