Here we go again … hit musical Rock of Ages is heading back to Aberdeen.
The hugely popular show will roll into His Majesty’s Theatre for a week-long run in January next year.
And tickets for the show are set to be popular with theatre fans when they go on sale on April 24, say theatre bosses.
Ben Torrie, director of programming and creative projects for Aberdeen Performing Arts, said “We are absolutely delighted to welcome back the global smash-hit Rock of Ages to His Majesty’s Theatre.
“This hilarious, high-energy show is crammed full of classic rock hits and is guaranteed to have audiences leaving the theatre on a high.”
The show, which will run from January 29 to February 2, won over audiences when it appeared at HMT as part of its first UK tour in 2014.
It features more than 25 rock anthems from the ‘80s, including We Built This City, Don’t Stop Believin’, The Final Countdown and I Want To Know What Love Is.
Set in Los Angeles during the ‘80s, it centres on a small town girl and city boy meeting on Sunset Strip as they follow their dreams.
The show premiered on Broadway in 2009 and was nominated for five Tony Awards.
It transferred to the Shaftesbury Theatre in 2011 and the Garrick in 2013, and embarked on a UK tour in 2014.
The musical was also adapted for the big screen in 2012 with an all-star cast including Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston and Tom Cruise.
Casting for the new tour has not been announ-ced, but its 2014 outing saw Noel Sullivan in the lead role as under-dog Drew.
Noel found fame in 2001 with pop band Hear’Say and has since starred in hit musicals including Grease, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and We Will Rock You.
At the time he said it was a classical musical with a couple of twists – and also incredibly funny.
He said: “It has its tongue firmly planted inside its own cheek and it pokes fun at the jukebox musical.
“People come along just expecting to hear the music and they go away having laughed non-stop all night.”
