Rock of Ages at the Venetian in Las Vegas in more than just a concert featuring music of the 80’s. It is a musical! It has a story line, multiple love stories and great music all the way through.
Before the show started, we had the opportunity to look at some pictures of the artists of the 80’s.
I am so pleased we had the opportunity to see the show. It was very well done and most enjoyable. I was afraid the music would be too loud, but that was not the case. The music was loud, but it did not blow my head off.
Back in the 80’s when our sons were teens, I was particularly fond of David Lee Roth, lead singer of Van Halen. I even had a poster of him in my bedroom. I don’t remember where the poster came from, but I remember the poster.
We were living in Augusta, Maine at the time. It was a most momentous occasion when Van Halen came to town to give a concert. That was a major thrill. The concert was held at the Augusta Civic Center.
I was so excited. I would actually get to see David Lee Roth in person. Because of previous commitments, Steve and I could not attend the concert until after it started. We entered the back of the concert hall and waited a moment for our eyes to adjust to the dim lighting. Our eyes adjusted, but our ears never adjusted to the loud head splitting music. I can’t even say for certain that we stayed for a whole song. After that I continued to like David Lee Roth and Van Halen, but only when I could control the volume.
Our outing to see Rock of Ages was even more fun because we went with our friends, Debbie Drummond and Michael Petit. I think you will enjoy this fun, high energy show as much as we did.
Have you seen the show?
