We Will Rock You Bites The Dust Nov 27th

We love rock n roll. We love Freddie Mercury. We were ready and willing to be rocked.

Daily Variety is reporting We Will Rock You the hit(?) musical based on the hit (!) songs by the band Queen will bite the dust after a string of 520 performances at Paris Las Vegas. The Show 'won't' Go On after Sunday, Nov. 27.

The question is... what happened? How do you f* this up?

While a good idea in theory, the true output of We Will Rock You was quite lousy... a half baked cheesy high school play wrapped around some of the most groundbreaking rock music ever created. Regardless of "We Will Rock You"'s fate in Vegas, its still scheduled to continue its runs in England, Spain, and Germany with 2006 bringing new productions in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban, South Africa as well as Zurich, Switzerland.

The death of We Will Rock You appears to be part of the Harrah's Entertainment shakeout... the first strands of which we've seen with Celine Dion's announcement that she's going preggo and not renewing at Caesars in 2007, the hiring of Wayne Fucking Newton at the Flamingo (and the potential non renewal of Gladys Knight's showroom contract), the more than rumored implosion of Ballys - and the great Jubilee showgirl ass that shines over the intersection of Flamingo Rd and the Strip.

This is just the beginning. Expect all new Harrah's properties to be "in play" as regards to entertainment, dining, shopping... the whole deal.

Harrah's sucks.
