MiG Ayesa Heads Tour of We Will Rock You

The We Will Rock You 10th Anniversary World Arena Tour  kicks off in March 2013 at Nottingham Trent Arena.

It has just been confirmed with Australian rock singer and actor MiG Ayesa playing Galileo. He moved to London from Sydney in 2001 when Brian May from Queen worked on a collaboration with his band Mignition. Ayesa has already played Galileo in the West End (in 2003) and on an international. tour. Other musical theatre credits include Angel in Rent, Danny Zuko in Grease, Burn The Floor and Stacee Jaxx in the Rock of Ages US Tour and on Broadway.

In December 2011 he returned to London to reprise his role in Thriller Live and in May 2012 he returned to the Philippines to reprise his role as Stacee Jaxx in a completely sold out new production of Rock of Ages.

Other casting includes Kevin Kennedy and Brenda Edwards reprising their roles of Pop and Killer Queen from the West End production for the UK leg of the tour.  X Factor finalist Lucie Jones is Meat and Lauren Samuels will return to the role of Scaramouche. Khashoggi will be played by Sean Kingsley.

For the remainder of the World Arena tour, which goes to the 02 Arena in Dublin when it leaves the UK, Pop will be performed by Rob Castell with Jenna Lee James as Killer Queen.

The world tour will visit arenas in Finland, Denmark, Holland, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Turkey, Bulgaria and the UK and Ireland in 2013. Further dates in Japan, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia will be announced shortly.

i will attest to the fact that MiG Ayesa is the reason why Rock of Ages MAnila has been completely sold out, on its first week alone! MiG is just the best! HE gives his all in every performance! So proud of you MiG! -T2

I haven't seen MiG play Galileo but have heard amazing things about him so will certainly catch his performance on the arena tour.

I saw MiG many times as Galileo at the Dominion in London. The whole production is amazing and always will be.

MiG is the perfect choice for the world tour of We Will Rock You! I've seen MiG in Rock of Ages and Burn the Floor on Broadway, and he is absolutely stunning on stage. He has a gorgeous and memorable voice, and an amazing stage presence. This tour is going to ROCK!
