Following a three-year run in London’s West End, audiences around the country will get the chance to enjoy ROCK OF AGES The Musical as it continues a UK tour arriving in Edinburgh from 19th - 24th May and Glasgow from 4th - 9th August.
Rock of Ages

Set in Hollywood’s Bourbon Room around the mid-to-late 80s, we follow young busboy Drew (Noel Sullivan), who dreams of being a rock star in his own glam-metal band.
He meets country-girl Sherrie (Cordelia Farnworth) – who, like thousands of other hopefuls, has just arrived in town with dreams of making it big.
Enter Stacee Jaxx a charismatic, sexually-charged, narcissistic rock singer who threatens to steal Sherrie away from Drew!
Noel Sullivan In the middle of all the chaos and the competing for young Sherrie’s affections, two German developers are trying to close down the bar and take over the strip!
Set in the late eighties, this is pure jukebox musical territory, with a playlist that is soft-rock to its carefully manicured core. ROCK OF AGES The Musical is the ultimate rock mix-tape musical, a hilarious story of dreams, love and - of course - rock.
A modern twist to the plot demonstrates that it knows exactly the demographic it is playing to. Here are strong female roles, with lots of skimpy outfits; this show is not for the faint hearted!
This 80s-themed hilarious musical features over 30 hair-raising 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”.
Rock of Ages is a kick ass musical filled with spandex , studs , skimpy outfits and a collaboration of some of the best rock ballads of all time! The music is delivered by astonishingly talented musicians who are the true stars of the show!
Grab your leather jacket, bring out the glitter and get ready to rock!
