The Rock of Ages Las Vegas show follows the lead of the original 2006 Broadway musical and the 2012 movie that stars, among other actors, Tom Cruise. The show celebrates the "great rock music" of the 1980s while also telling the story of two young people who move to Los Angeles to pursue their music dreams. The Sunset Strip is the setting, and both the songs and the hair are big. Also of sizeable proportions is the amount of attention that the Rock of Ages Las Vegas show is getting. Opened on January 5, 2013, it has fast become one of the hottest shows in a town that is known for its many great on-stage performances.


The Venetian is the place to go if you want to see the Rock of Ages Las Vegas show. One of the most renowned resorts in the city, it occupies a privileged location along the famous Vegas Strip and offers a luxurious take on Venice, Italy. The resort even has a replica of the St. Mark’s Campanile and canals that can be used for gondola rides. Shops, bars, restaurants, and a glorious casino are just some of the resort’s other features. In other words, anyone who is heading to The Venetian to see the Rock of Ages show can find plenty of things to do before or after the actual performance. It should be noted that while the Rock of Ages Las Vegas show has plenty of comedic, feel-good appeal, it comes with a parental advisory. Some of the language, dancing, and costumes might not be appropriate for kids under the age of 14. Youngsters who fall into this age category must be accompanied by an adult.


Rock of Ages is set in the year 1987. As mentioned in the opening paragraph of this article, the famous Sunset Strip in Los Angeles is the setting. It is there that Drew, a boy from South Detroit, meets Sherrie, a small-town girl. Both are in Los Angeles with the purpose of chasing their dreams and making it big. As is true of so many young people, and people in general, they are also looking for love. Helping to tell the story are 28 of the greatest rock and roll songs from the 80s, with examples including "Don’t Stop Believin’," "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "Here I Go Again," "We Built This City," and "I Want to Know What Love Is." At times, this inventive show directly addresses the audience, so don’t be surprised if you literally get caught up on the performance.
