“This show Rocks!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The show is not for the very old or the very young. The base will shake you and if you can't get pumped up you have a problem. Great variety of music, but especially made for baby boomers born between 1946-1968. But anyone with a sense of rock or "open minded" thinking can enjoy.
But if you "lived through these times" it is lights out. You can select your seat on Ticketmaster in advance and I did, because I prefer end seats and not too close.

Beer and drinks were flowing all around, but we opted for bottles of water to cool ourselves down. They also give you little lights to wave concert style at selected times.

Bring your sense of humor and your sense of rock and you are in for a treat. Songs like "We Built this City," "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Oh Cheri" will rock you to the core. Great performances too. At the end the leader of the band from White Snake brought the house down.

Some rough language, but only for effect, not in bad taste like some comedy on HBO. I thought it was a pretty good story line too. First rate entertainment that only Las Vegas can offer. If you are tired of paying $200 to see acrobats in leotards bounce from the ceiling then go and see this show. If you don't leave the theater smiling, then have your physician check for a pulse when you get home!

“So much fun!!!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We didn't know what to expect, in spite of other reviews, because music is a very personal thing. Foreigner, Journey, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, etc. Well, we had such a blast. The musicianship, singing and acting was way more than we expected. Outstanding! A very funny audience vibe because drink orders were being taken and sold up and down the aisles along with spiked jello, etc. Funny! A great time and highly, highly recommended!

“Never stopped smiling...”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

I'm a 43 year old guy, while I enjoy theater to some extent, I don't crave it/ What I do love is good old 80s rock...well ROA was a perfect homage to the golden age of hair bands!! Licensed theater meant lots of drinks to keep the laughter coming...def worth getting tickets...

“A good time”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

I thought this was a great musical to see if you are looking to have a good time. I do believe you have to go in with the right mindset to really enjoy it. If you are looking for a deep plot line with dramatics, this isn't the one for you.
