ROCK OF AGES TENTH ANNIVERSARY TOUR COMING TO VITERBO FEB. 6
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Celebrate the bombastic 1980s with the rock music anthems of the decade as the 10th anniversary tour of Rock of Ages comes to the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6.
Nominated for five Tony Awards®, including best musical, Rock of Ages captures the era that was the big, bad 1980s Hollywood. Know What Love Is, Feel the Noise, and Take Your Best Shot at one of the Sunset Strip’s last epic venues, a place where the legendary Stacee Jaxx returns to the stage and rock-n-roll dreamers line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Featuring the music of hit bands such as Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister, and Whitesnake among many others, this tenth anniversary production features a dynamic new cast revisiting the larger than life characters and exhilarating story that turned Rock of Agesinto a global phenomenon.
Described as a jukebox musical with “a scrappy blend of 1980s nostalgia and legit rock musicianship,” Rock of Ages includes hits Every Rose Has Its Thorn, I Wanna Know What Love Is, Here I Go Again, and Don’t Stop Believin’.
Immensely popular with audiences, Rock of Ages ran on Broadway from 2009–15. A screen adaptation was released in 2012. Book is by Chris D’Arienzo with arrangements and orchestrations by Ethan Popp.
This performance is part of Viterbo’s NexStar Season and is sponsored by Altra Federal Credit Union and in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. The La Crosse Tribune and 101.1 FM The River are the media sponsors.
