Big hair, tight pants, neon colours, and lots of fun music are what most people will remember the 1980s for. Rock of Ages was a musical then a film starring Tom Cruise and Russell Brand and now is a musical again. If you are looking for a fun night out with plenty of great music then this is the musical for you.
Nominated for five Tony Awards, the musical is one that has had fans leaving for many a night with a smile on their face and humming any of the songs from the show. In a nutshell the story of the show is about a young guy named Drew from Detroit and a young girl named from a small town who dream of making it big in the music business. While they set about trying to make their dreams come true when they both move to Los Angeles they end up falling in love.
Filled with songs like Don’t Stop Believin’, We Built This City, The Final Countdown, Wanted Dead or Alive, Here I Go Again, and I Wanna Know What Love Is Rock of Ages brings all the classics of the era. Part cheese and all fun I defy you not to be singing at the top of your lungs and dancing in the aisle by the end of the show.
