I could not stand any more of 40 minutes of it and had to go, sound system shocking, acting poor, music awful, I can enjoy anything usually and out of courtesy would never walk out but could not stand another minute, sorry, but I am struggling to understand how anyone would think it is brilliant.Saw it in Milton Keynes and...

Saw this last night at Milton Keynes. We see lots of shows and I have to say this was the best I've seen in ages. All cast are the main attraction and deserve full credit. Songs are sung so well. Loved every minute. Thoroughly recommend it.

When I saw it, it had a Justin Lee-Collins and Shayne Ward in it and other lead characters from whom I saw on Children in Need. It was ok, storyline was clear enough and the music was various great classic rock tunes. I wouldn't go and see it again in a hurry - but I think it was trying to... More

Went to see Rock of Ages in Glasgow last week, this was the 3rd time in seeing the show as previously we had seen it in London and I can only say this was the best yet. The whole cast were amazing especially Ben Richards and Noel Sullivan. Would recommend this show, if you like 80's rock music or just... More

Fell good, laugh out loud, have a laugh,and don't try to take it seriously because it doesn't profess to be a serious musical - if you want that go to a different show. I saw it 6 times in the West End, extrordinary cast there and brilliant theatre (Garrick), and I've seen it twice on tour so far (booked for... More

I have seen loads of musicals and this was by far the worst one. The staging was terrible, the storyline didnt flow and the acting was appalling. The only positive was that Stephen Rolley who was playing Drew had a good voice, oh and Franz was quite funny. Would not recommend this show and glad I didnt pay too much... More

We saw Rock of Ages in London twice and enjoyed it every time. You can let you hair down, sing, clap and I have not seen another performance have a complete standing ovation like this. The 'Narrator' is excellent and very very funny but so are the whole cast. This particular review is about the Rock of Ages Tour but... More

Went to Bristol Hippodrome to watch this. There was a technical failure earlier on but it recovered. Here comes the quandry: Watch the Film first or the Show? My answer to that is watch the show first or you may be disappointed. From early on, you could tell that a lot of the audience had come with the expectation of... More
