Verdict: Four stars 

FOR a story written almost two decades ago, We Will Rock You could not be more relevant to present-day society. 

The jukebox musical was built around a narrative created by Ben Elton which takes you to a future where the earth has been renamed iPlanet and is controlled by a cooperation called Globalsoft.

In this world, all sense of pop culture is lost as everyone wears the same clothes, has the same opinions - and rock n' roll is simply a historical myth forgotten about.

But the overriding theme of the show is how we have let computers take over our lives instead of living in the moment - sound familiar?

Glasgow Times:

It's at this point in the story we are introduced to Galileo played by the talented Ian McIntosh. A free spirit desperate to experience real life, Galileo is different from most on iPlanet - and for that reason, he is a threat. 

We follow him on his journey as he meets love interest Scaramouche, played by Elena Skye and the bohemians who are a group desperate to find out about their non-computer controlled past. 

Glasgow Times:

The futuristic plot is then built around some of Queen's biggest songs - and it is a move that works beautifully.

From I Want to Break Free to Somebody to Love, both McIntosh, and Skye put on show-stopping performances of songs which are notoriously difficult to sing. Their voices are simply outstanding and provide the right sort of tribute to Freddie Mercury who was the ultimate showman. 

Glasgow Times:

Buddy played by Michael McKell brought the comedy factor to the show. He had the audiences in stitches with his rendition of a wannabe rock n' roll star who doesn't quite know what it all means. From facial expression to comic timing, he was a standout star who provided laughs throughout.

This was bolstered by the rest of the cast who through their choreography and vocals, brought to life some of Queen's greatest hits including Under Pressure, Radio Ga Ga and Don't Stop Me Now. 

Glasgow Times:

Subtle tributes to Freddie Mercury and the rest of Queen throughout the show reminds the audience who the real star of We Will Rock You is. Their music was theatrical and could not be more suited to the stage. 

With the release of Bohemian Rhapsody last year, a new generation is being introduced to one of music's greatest singers - meaning demand for shows like this will always be high.

The plot may seem a bit whacky at points but the themes are very much in keeping with current times. 

We Will Rock You is a musical which entertains, makes you laugh and most importantly - you leave appreciating just how good the music of Queen is. 

Catch We Will Rock You at the Theatre Royal until Saturday, December 28.
