Portland Ovations brings the five-time Tony Award nominated Broadway smash-hit Rock of Ages to Merrill Auditorium for one performance only, Saturday, March 30th at 8pm and tickets are selling fast.
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, and now a star studded motion picture, is rockin' its way across the USA. Don't miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!
Rock of Ages is a worldwide phenomenon with a smash hit production in London, 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".
