Corrie actor returns to We Will Rock You

Friday, 18th Jun 2010  

We Will Rock You tickets are set to be in demand among Coronation Street fans this autumn.

Former Corrie star Kevin Kennedy, aka Curly Watts, confirmed he will be appearing in the West End production from September.

Kennedy played Pop in the musical during its recent run in Manchester and put in an impressive performance.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, the actor said he is excited to be going back to We Will Rock You, as it is a "great show".

"This will be my fourth appearance in the West End, which is not bad considering I did 20 years of Corrie in the middle of all that," Kennedy commented.

We Will Rock You is based on the songs of Queen and has been scripted by Blackadder writer Ben Elton.

However, Queen band members Roger Taylor and Brian May have been closely involved with the production since it began.

What a fab show! Seen it twice now and when we went again 2 weeks ago I didn't get to see the cast list and knew I recognised 'Pop's' voice but couldn't think who it was. Just Googled it and of course it was Curly Watts!!!
