Following a three-year run in London’s West End, audiences around the country will get the chance to enjoy Rock of Ages as it embarks on a UK tour, opening at The Palace Theatre, Manchester on 5th May 2014.

The show will then tour to ATG venues all over the UK coming to The Churchill Theatre, Bromley on Monday 16th Jun – Saturday 21st Jun.

Rock of Ages is the ultimate rock mix-tape musical, an hilarious story of dreams, love and rock. A celebration of classic 80s rock culture, the show tells the story of a small town girl and a big city rocker falling in love to the greatest songs of the decade. Featuring memorable tunes such as ‘We Built This City’, ‘The Final Countdown’, ‘I Wanna Know What Love Is’ and ‘Don’t Stop Believin’, the show brings its wild celebration of Los Angeles rock culture to the UK.
