Raiding The Rock Vault

If you’re a fan of classic rock, then you’ve got to get tickets for Raiding the Rock Vault the next time you’re in Las Vegas. You may not have heard of this show before (I didn’t before seeing it), but after experiencing it first hand last month when we came out to Vegas, I can tell you that it’s DEFINITELY worth checking out if you’re a fan of live music, performed by members of some of the greatest rock bands in history.

Raiding The Rock Vault is The Story of Classic Rock, a 2-hour classic rock experience that transports the audience from the 1960s to the 1980′s with classic anthems from The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Eagles, Queen, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Van Halen, Journey, Free, Bryan Adams and more. They’ve dubbed it “The Greatest Set List Ever,” and for good reason.

But this isn’t some lame cover band performing hits from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. No, these iconic songs are performed by an all-star band with names that you’re sure to recognize. Try these names on for size:

  • Howard Leese -Guitar (Heart, Bad Company)
  • Tracii Guns -Guitar (LA Guns, Guns n’ Roses)
  • Robin McAuley -Lead Vocals (MSG, Survivor)
  • John Payne -Lead Vocals, Bass (Asia)
  • Paul Shortino -Lead Vocals (Rough Cutt, Quiet Riot)
  • Jay Schellen -Drums (Hurricane, Asia)
  • Andrew Freeman -Lead Vocals (Lynch Mob, Offpsring)
  • Michael T. Ross -Keyboards (Lita Ford)

Raiding The Rock Vault - Band Members

This fully live concert experience features a stunning light show, video screens, actors, DJ Narrator, and high quality concert sound production in the famous showroom at the LVH Hotel and Casino, formerly the Las Vegas Hilton. Sure, it’s a bit of a hike getting down here, but it’s totally worth it!

Still not convinced? TripAdvisor ranked it #4 of 537 attractions in Las Vegas, with an overwhelming number of 5-star reviews. That right there tells you something right there.

Overall, it was a pretty amazing show. All of the band members were great, but I was particularly impressed with Andrew Freeman and Tracii Guns. Both of them put on epic performances, and you could see that they were having a blast up there, and that they weren’t just there to collect a paycheck.

The show also features special guests from time to time as part of its Icon Series, and the one and only Lou Gramm (founding vocalist of the rock band Foreigner) will be performing in five shows from October 18-22. How awesome is that?!

Ticket prices for Raiding The Rock Vault range from $49 to $125 (plus fees) for a special Rock Star Package (which includes tickets in first five rows, t-shirt, concert program, album, meet-and-greet and VIP pass).

For an up-to-date schedule or to purchase tickets, visit the LVH box office or log onto thelvh.com, vegas.com, or ticketmaster.com. Tickets can also be purchased by calling 702-732-5755 or 800-222-5361.

After you check out the show, be sure to come back and let us know what you thought of it!

    <3 this show! I live in Las Vegas and I've been 6 times! My 7th time will be to see Lou Gramm next week (saw Jon Anderson last month perform with the band!) The musical talent in this show is phenomenal. You won't be dissapointed.

Watch The Terrifying Final ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Trailer

Published

on

Universal Pictures just released the final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, which is set to stampede into theaters on June 22nd, 2017.

It’s been 4 years since Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment, and Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. But when the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire must rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.

But that’s not all. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition discovers that a shadowy arms company has created a genetically-engineered dinosaur called the Indoraptor, described as “the most dangerous creature that ever walked the earth,” that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times!

Naturally, it’s up to Owen and Claire to save the world, because as Dr. Malcolm wisely reflects, “those creatures were here before us and if we’re not careful they’re going to be here after us.”

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this!

Watch The Official Trailer For ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

Published

on

Disney has released the official trailer for their upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, giving us fans a peek at the next standalone installment of the Star Wars franchise. Like many of you, I was a little hesitant about a Han Solo origin story.

But after watching this trailer, I’m all in!

The trailer for Solo opens with young Han being recruited for a job. He tells Tobias Beckett that he’s a driver and that he’s waited a long time for a shot like this. Becket warns him that once he joins, he’s part of this life forever. And so it begins.

Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars sagas most unlikely heroes.

We wish we could just make the jump to May 25th already when Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters, but this trailer will have to tide us over until then.

Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ In A Major Key Sounds Pretty Crazy

Published

on

Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” perfectly captured the teenage angst of the early ’90s, a dark and moody grunge track track that helped propel the band from cult fandom to mainstream success.

The song was originally written in minor key (which is sad, bleak and eerie by definition), but a group called Sleep Good decided to take their signature hit and pitch-shift it to a major key, completely changing the tone of the song and turning it into a happy-go-lucky pop punk hit that’s surprisingly catchy.

While I know I should hate it on principal alone, I can’t stop listening to Nirvirna – Teen Sprite for whatever reason. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of Everclear, Weezer, and other bands from the 90’s..

Give it a listen and let us know what you think of it.
