Combines two guilty pleasures in one, and a hefty dose of self mockery...

The Sunday Times

Closed 6 Jan 2013

Hair band devotees rejoice: The anthems of the '80s are back. The new musical features the hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and many more.

Rock of Ages celebrates (glam)rock music of the 80's featuring Material by Bon Jovi, Journey, Whitesnake, Poison, Pat Benatar and many more. Expect to rock along with old favourites including 'I wanna know what love is', 'Wanted dear or alive', 'Every rose has its Torn', We built this city'.

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl meets a big city rocker in LA's most famous rock club and they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80s. It's ROCK OF AGES, an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits such as Don't Stop Believin', Dead or Alive, We Built This City, I Wanna Know what Love Is and The Final Count Down.

Don't miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!
