ROCK OF AGES is the 'insanely fun' (New York Time Out ) worldwide smash hit that features a raucous mix of 28 eyebrow-scorching tunes including Don�t Stop Believin�, We Built This City, The Final Countdown, Wanted Dead or Alive, Here I Go Again, Can�t Fight this Feeling and I Want To Know What Love Is.

Set in LA�s infamous Sunset Strip in 1987, ROCK OF AGES tells the story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small-town girl, both in LA to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. ROCK OF AGES takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair!
