Queen guitarist Brian May plans to build on the incredible success of stage musical WE WILL ROCK YOU by creating a rival show.

The revered musician is about to embark on a UK tour of the established hit musical, which opened in 2002 at London's Dominion Theatre, but is keen to begin a fresh project as well.

He says, We hope to have two going at once. We are looking for a new London theatre.

"Theatres are booked up, but you never know when one will be free."
