Another Milestone For Elton/Tim Rice Musical

Written by Chief Editor.

The Lion King has passed another historic milestone this week, welcoming its 100,000,000th guest worldwide.

Since its Broadway premiere on November 13, 1997, 25 productions have played in 100 cities around the world on every continent except Antarctica.

To celebrate the achievement, a new music video was released today, featuring 100 cast members from seven companies of the show singing Circle of Life in five languages on location across three continents.

The video was shot at landmarks of the cities currently hosting the show. The Lion King can currently be seen on New York's Broadway; London's West End; Hamburg; Tokyo; Madrid; Scheveningen, Holland; on an international tour now playing South Korea; and on tours across Japan and North America.
