London has a new kick-ass rock musical

The Shaftesbury Theatre is the new home for the hilariously rockin’ worldwide smash hit musical Rock Of Ages.

Set in 1987 on the Sunset Strip in LA the musical Rock Of Ages tells the story of Drew a timid lad from Michigan who works as a busboy at the Hollywood bar, the Bourbon Room, whilst waiting for his big break as a guitarist in a glam metal band. He then meets and falls in love  Sherrie, an aspiring actress from small town Kansas, who is also in LA chasing her dreams of making it big.

Rock Of Ages takes you back to the time of big hair, big egos and big bands playing big guitar solos.

The show features many 80’s rock tracks including Don’t Stop Believin’,We Built This City, The Final Countdown, Wanted Dead Or Alive, Here I Go Again and I Want To Know What Love Is.

Big-hair Metal went out of fashion in the 90’s, but will this musical help revive the image of  hairspray, eyeliner and leopard print spandex leggings with obligatory bulge?

This star studded cast includes Justin Lee Collins who plays Dennis Dupree and Shayne Ward.

If you have ever secretly wanted to be a latex clad, backcombed hair and eyeliner rocker, then this is the musical  for you, so grab your Rock of Ages tickets from, dress up in your best Motley Crue gear embrace your inner rocker and strut your stuff down to the Shaftsbury Theatre in London for a  Rock ‘n Roll experience.

If you do miss this hell-raising musical, then don’t worry the film rights to Rock Of Ages have been sold to Warner Bros and the Rock of Ages film is expected to hit our cinemas in 2012!
