Rock Of Ages is the Broadway musical which sets a love story to a soundtrack of classic 80s rock tunes.

A celebration of rock culture in 1980s Los Angeles, Rock Of Ages is set in the city in 1987, when a small town girl meets a big city rocker in LA’s most famous rock club. They fall in love to some of the greatest songs of the decade.

Rock Of Ages features the classic tunes We Built This City, The Final Countdown, I Wanna Know What Love Is, Here I Go Again and Don’t Stop Believin’.

Created in London by the creative team behind the show’s Broadway production, Rock Of Ages has audiences rocking out in the aisles.
