Rock of Ages to transfer theatres and extend West End run in 2013

Posted: 18th December 2012
Award-winning comedy rock-musical switches to the Garrick Theatre in January, new tickets now available

The current run of the hilarious and wonderfully preposterous Rock of Ages will be coming to an end at London's Shaftesbury Theatre on 6th January 2013. After nearly 18 months of hilarity and bad hair, the acclaimed award-winning heart-warming story will transfer to a new home on 18th January.

For the foreseeable future, the Garrick Theatre will host the musical with a new no-Sundays schedule currently confirmed until autumn 2013.

Any tickets purchased for shows originally due to be held at the Shaftesbury Theatre after and including 7th January, up until 17th January, can be transferred to a suitable Garrick performance (or refunded) - other Shaftesbury Theatre tickets for shows from 18th January onwards will also be contacted (your ticket(s) should be valid for corresponding Garrick shows).

Meanwhile, if you want to check out Rock of Ages for yourselves, new tickets for the Garrick shows are on sale from us now. Prices start at £39.50 and rise to £95 for the top stalls.

Chris D'Arienzo's comedy musical incorporates many a soft rock classic into this eighties tale of aspiring rock star, Drew, a waiter in a Hollywood bar, and his girlfriend Sherrie, a wannabe actress. It's big hair and big tunes all the way. Featuring a string of hair-rock hits, the score includes Europe's 'Final Countdown', Journey's now ubiquitous 'Don't Stop Believin' and poodle-perm classics from Poison, Foreigner, Whitesnake, REO Speedwagon and even Slade. It's a riot of rock, riffs and kick-ass fun.
