Owner description: Rock of Ages, the "insanely fun" (Time Out New York) worldwide smash hit musical featuring a raucous mix of 28 eyebrow-scorching tunes, is now rocking nightly at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Set in L.A.'s infamous Sunset Strip in 1987, Rock of Ages tells the story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit and Sherrie, a small-town girl, both in L.A. to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. Rock of Ages takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair! This hilarious, feel-good love story celebrates the great rock songs of the '80s including such sing-out-loud songs as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is", "Here I Go Again", "Don't Stop Believin'", and more. Parental Advisory Rock of Ages is all about having a good time but you should be aware that some of the costumes, dancing and language might not be appropriate for kids under the age of 14 (kids under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult). Remember, if you do bring them, they'll get to see you rockin' like you did back in the day! AGE LIMIT Under 14 Must Be Accompanied By An Adult Under 5 Will Not Be Admitted Into The Theatre

“Really great show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

This show is really fun. The cast is great, the band is great, the story is fun....Way better than the movie. Go to this show if you like Rock and Roll and dont want to watch another fluffy Cirque show.

“Slow start but rocked it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I thought it was a bit slow to get going, but it then it got good! Did not expect it to be so funny! Yes, as mentioned, there is sexual humor so not for everyone (but if you don't appreciate that, you shouldn't be in Vegas!). The music was great and I thought the leading lady had an amazing voice and did a fantastic job. The narrator was pretty funny too and was able to handle some unexpected comments from the audience with quick wit. Enjoyed all the music and it was a great night out with friends!

“Not for kids, and a bit clunky, but Vegas fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Went here in Nov 2013. Had great seats, maybe 7 rows back in the middle.
Pros: it's fun reliving the music! None of the singers were bad, and a few of the leads were really good. Costumes. Environment (temperature, seats, etc). Cons: it seemed like they took someone else's show production and made it R-rated (penis jokes, camel-toe T-shirts), but sometimes that just seemed clunky. Like an add-on that wasn't well integrated.
Overall it is good Vegas fun.
