ROCK OF AGES
ALL-STAR REUNION CONCERT
SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 2021

Stephens Auditorium is pleased to announce another Broadway livestream experience for our community. The five-time Tony Award-nominated musical Rock of Ages, the 30th Longest Running Show in Broadway history, will play a one-night only, bi-coastal livestream jamfest Rock of Ages: All-Star Reunion Concert on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 7:00PM CT.  Proceeds from tickets bought from this link https://www.stellartickets.com/o/rock-of-ages/events/rock-of-ages-live-all-star-reunion-concert?aff=iastate support Stephens Auditorium.  Tickets available beginning on Tuesday, March 16 at 12pm. Ticket purchasers will have the option of watching the concert live and/or on demand for an additional 24 hours.

“Until we are able to welcome back Broadway to Stephens, we believe offering livestream opportunities for our audiences and the community is the next best thing,” said Tammy Koolbeck, Stephens Auditorium Executive Director.  “Rock of Ages will be a lot of fun and as the image says – you can ‘stream at the top of your lungs’ so buy a ticket and support Stephens Auditorium.”

Tony-nominated Broadway Producers Matthew Weaver, Scott Prisand, and Joan Grande with Diamond Dog Entertainment are thrilled to announce the show will feature a soon-to-be-announced “supergroup” of Rock of Ages stars from across the globe.   The Rock of Ages: All-Star Reunion Concert will feature live performances of the greatest hits of the 1980s, like you’ve never heard them before – blasting worldwide right off the legendary Sunset Strip itself, from the Rock of Ages Hollywood stage at The Bourbon Room, with special surprise performances from New York City. The night will be tailormade for audiences yearning to stream at the top of their lungs – whether a long-time fan, or someone just lookin’ for “nuthin’ but a good time” to break up a year of Zoom meetings.

“If ever there was a show created to make you feel good, sing along, and forget your worries, it’s Rock of Ages,” says producer Matthew Weaver. “We are so pumped to be able to reunite some of the best performers from Rock of Ages’ storied past for one euphoric night, to help global audiences escape to the Sunset Strip for a virtual party of rock ballads and revelry. Come one, come all. Make your own Jell-O shots, stretch out your dominant air-guitar hand, and grab your lighter! This is going to be the most fun night of 2021.”

The music that ignited a generation soars to new heights in the critically-acclaimed and audience-adored hit musical Rock of Ages. “Even doubters will be wiping tears from their Wayfarers” as the show’s uproarious, tongue-in-cheek original love story erupts into an exhilarating musical experience that delivers “the kind of operatic ecstasy you read about only in bathroom stalls” (Entertainment Weekly). An “absurdly enjoyable” musical that’s “as guilty as pleasures get,” (New York Times) Rock of Ages is set to the greatest rock anthems and power ballads of the 80s, like you’ve never heard them before.  Featuring such hits as “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “I Wanna Know What Love Is”, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” “Here I Go Again”, “Don’t Stop Believin’” and many more, theatergoers are invited to raise their lighters, crack open the wine coolers, and bask in “the kind of craft that makes escapism all the more satisfying.” (Variety) 

Rock of Ages: All-Star Reunion Concert is produced by Matthew Weaver, Scott Prisand, Joan Grande with Diamond Dog Entertainment, Hillary Weaver, Janet Billig Rich, Darcie Crager, and Michael Maddox. The original Broadway Production of Rock of Ages was produced by Matthew Weaver, Michael Cohl and S2BN Entertainment, with Carl Levin, Jeff Davis, Barry Habib, Scott Prisand, Reagan Silber, Paula Davis, Relativity Media, Janet Billig Rich and Hillary Weaver.

General public on-sale begins Tuesday, March 16 at 12:00PM (noon) (CST). Early Bird pricing is $27 through March 21, with general pricing of $33 per ticket starting March 22. Ticket purchasers will have the option of watching the concert live and/or on demand for an additional 24 hours.
