“Rock of Ages,” the Broadway musical that’s also been made into a movie starring Tom Cruise, has landed in Las Vegas as the latest in a line of productions to be formatted for the Sin City stage. 

Its website says the two-hour performance celebrates the "great rock music of the '80s." It's set along the Sunset Strip and tells the tale of two young people -- Drew (Justin Mortelliti) and Sherrie (Carrie St. Louis) -- who move to Los Angeles in 1987 to pursue their dreams.

The show opened Jan. 5 at the Venetian.

The love story features familiar, sing-along songs such as "Don’t Stop Believin’," "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Want to Know What Love Is" and "We Built This City."

“Rock of Ages” is performed at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and Sundays. On Saturdays, the shows are at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. The musical is dark on Mondays.

Tickets are $57-$167 (before fees). They can be purchased on the website or by calling the Venetian Box Office at (866) 641-7469.
