Rock anthems and power ballads
The ultimate musical for all rock fans is finally coming to Munich. The Rock of Ages soundtrack consists of the greatest power ballads and rock anthems of the 80s, such as “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake, “The Final Countdown” by Europe, “Can’t Fight This Feeling” by Reo Speedwagon, “I Want To Know What Love Is” by Foreigner, and many more. But it’s not just music that makes this show a super bash. Rock of Ages also impresses with lots of humour and self-irony.
We celebrate the soundtrack of an entire generation!
Rock of Ages is the live spectacle that doesn’t take itself too seriously and is guaranteed to leave out no cliché of the unmistakable 80s. Love story or rocking homage, musical or parody? Rock of Ages is simply everything and definitely too much of each. The audience experiences real rockers, a wacky live band and the genuine attitude to life of a time that was really sexy. Over 25 legendary world hits are guaranteed to make our theatre shake too.
Rock of Ages is set in Los Angeles in the 80s: studded belts and ripped jeans rule the legendary rock club “Bourbon Room” on the infamous Sunset Strip. This is where small-town girl Sherrie meets big-city boy Drew – but the love story between the naive waitress and the serene bartender fails before it has even begun. Because the city wants to clean up the Sunset Strip – the existence of the “Bourbon Room” is threatened. A benefit concert by the successful rock band “Arsenal” is supposed to bring money into the empty coffers of the club operator. But with the appearance of the eccentric lead singer Stacee Jaxx, disaster takes its course …
I WANNA ROCK!
Since its acclaimed Broadway premiere, Rock of Ages has embarked on its unprecedented triumphal march around the world. Even Hollywood could not resist the charm of this pure rock nostalgia: Stars like Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alec Baldwin succumbed to the electric guitar frenzy and conquered the screens with the film adaptation in 2012. We are looking forward to Rock of Ages 2023 conquering the Republic from Munich. So, secure your tickets, strap on your air guitars and rock along!
