knights of the rose

Just announced: Knights of the Rose – A New Rock Musical with an Insane Setlist!

Get your eyeliner out! It’s time to bring rock back to the West Wnd with Knights of the Rose.

Knights of the Rose | Arts Theatre, Leicester Square | 29 June-26 August | £15-65

The ‘high-voltage musical of Shakespearean proportions’ journeys through an epic knights’ quest of betrayal, love, bloodshed and redemption. The action is all set – of course! – to the grinding rock soundtrack of much loved songs from Bonnie Tyler, Meatloaf, No Doubt and more.

We are excited to see how the ‘rich interwoven literature from Marlowe, Shakespeare and Chaucer’ can be mixed with legendary classic rock music, and whether this might just make a beautiful melange of popular culture evocative of ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Bat out of Hell’ as the producers hope.

Tickets go on sale today (23 March) – so get your leathers on and head to the dark side of ye olde moon!

Watch the videos of our top 5 picks of the set list:

Blood On Blood – Bon Jovi 

Holding Out For A Hero – Bonnie Tyler 

Don’t Speak – No Doubt

Addicted To Love – Robert Palmer

Wherever You Will Go – The Calling
