Will Rock Of Ages Cut The Mustard In The West End?

As Exclusively revealed by on January 26th 2011 Rock Of Ages tickets are now on sale for the shows opening this September at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London. The show, having already been successful in the U.S, Canada and Australia will arrive in the capital to try and become the new number one rock musical on the west end stage, but how will it fare?

The Rock Of Ages stage show is a production that doesn't take itself too seriousely combining a cheesy but fun storyline with 28 classic rock anthems from the 1980's from legendary rock bands like Bon Jovi, Journey, REO Speedwagon and Twisted Sister and producers hope that the show will appeal to the 35 to 55 age group both male and female to get the tills ringing.

As the UK struggles to fight its way out of recession and back to prosperity a little light entertainment is most welcome which should see Rock Of Ages tickets fly off the shelves as the London theatre going public lap up a little nostalgia and a feelgood night out out, and with a movie version of the show due for release starring Tom Cruise and Russell Brand all the initial indications are that Rock Of Ages tickets could become very hot property indeed!

Although rock musicals are nothing new to the west end, the Rock Of Ages show is the first one to define a whole decade with hit after hit blasting out getting the audience to have a great time singing along to their favourite songs from the '80's almost guaranteeing a great night out and should appeal to a wide audience including people who would not normally go to the theatre as well.

So will Rock Of Ages tickets be the new number one sellers in London? Only time will tell but one thing is for sure, if you fancy a little fun and escapism for a couple of hours to forget about the harsh reality of modern life then a trip down to the Shaftesbury Theatre this September could be just what the doctor ordered!
