rock of ages - 2017 & 2019
Having spent six years on Broadway, Rock of Ages then went on to Las Vegas, a nation-wide tour of the U.S. as well as productions in Tokyo, Toronto, Sydney, Mexico City, Panama City, Manila, Malta, Singapore and now Gold Reef City, Johannesburg!
Featuring 28 nostalgic rock anthems including the music of Pat Benatar, Styx, Twisted Sister, Poison, Foreigner, Reo Speedwagon and more, Rock Of Ages pays homage to the big rock concerts of the 80’s. Taking audiences all the way back to 1987 to the fabled West Hollywood club, the ‘Bourbon Room’, set on LA’s infamous Sunset Strip - tells the story of Drew, a city boy from South Detroit and Sherrie, a small-town girl that have both landed up in LA to chase their dreams of making it big. Rock Of Ages celebrates a time when big glamour rock bands where the epitome of decadence, superficiality, oversized egos, never ending guitar solos, extreme clothes and outrageous hairstyles!
