Get ready, South Africa! ‘Rock Of Ages’, one of the world’s greatest musicals, is making it’s way to Gold Reef City. Having spent six years on Broadway, Rock of Ages 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 the production is finally landing in South Africa!
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. It takes audiences all the way back to 1987 to the fabled West Hollywood club, the ‘Bourbon Room’, set on LA’s infamous Sunset Strip. The musical tells the story of Drew, a city boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small-town girl, who 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 were the epitome of decadence, superficiality, oversized egos, never ending guitar solos, extreme clothes, and outrageous hairstyles!
