Guests can take a trip down rock music’s memory lane with the opening of “Raiding the Rock Vault” at the LVH Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, formerly the Las Vegas Hilton.

Using narration and video clips, the musical extravaganza weaves together the history of rock 'n' roll from 1948 to 1989. It features classic anthems from AC/DC, the Doors, the Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Queen, the Who and other bands.

The music is performed by a cast that brings together many well-known names from the world of rock. The guitarists include Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns) and Howard Leese (Heart). Lead vocals are sung by Robin McAuley (McAuley Schenker Group), John Payne (Asia) and Paul Shortino (Rough Cutt and Quiet Riot).  

The show is written by Grammy Award-winning record producer David Kershenbaum.

The musical journey begins at 9 nightly (except Fridays) in the LVH Theater, the showroom in which Elvis Presley performed 858 consecutive sold-out shows.

Tickets start at $49 and are available through Ticketmaster or by calling the hotel at (800) 222-5361.

The “Rock Star” package, priced at $100, includes a seat in the first five rows, a T-shirt, a signed album, and a meet-and-greet opportunity.
