PREPARE TO ROCK THE MAGNIFICENT MILE THIS SUMMER
CHICAGO (March 6, 2012) Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to announce that the five-time Tony Award® nominated musical ROCK OF AGES is returning to Chicago this summer by popular demand, June 5- August 5, 2012, for a highly entertaining, intimate, rock concert experience at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 East Chestnut). Individual tickets for ROCK OF AGES go on-sale Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 10 a.m.
"This is certain to be a high-energy magical experience for all those who attend. Returning to its roots, this will be the first time since it was conceived that ROCK OF AGES will play an intimate venue where the audience will feel like they are part of the hair band party," says Eileen LaCario, Vice President of Broadway In Chicago.
ROCK OF AGES is a worldwide phenomenon with smash hit productions in Australia, London, South Korea and still rockin' on Broadway, featuring 28 classic rock tunes including“Don't Stop Believin'”, “We Built This City”,“The Final Countdown”, “Wanted Dead or Alive”,“Here I Go Again”, “Harden My Heart”, “Can't Fight this Feeling”, “Renegade” and “I Want To Know What Love Is.” And now it will sit down at the Broadway Playhouse in Chicago for nine weeks this summer.
In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city dreamer – and in L.A.’s most legendary rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80’s. It’s ROCK OF AGES, a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more. This five-time Tony nominated musical, with a star studded motion picture in the works, is rockin' its way across the USA. Don't miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!
