    I am trying to chose between Rock of Ages and Raiding the Rock Vault? For those that have seen both shows, what do you suggest? I would appreciate your thoughts/opinions? Thanks!

    Rock of ages is a show band
    Raiding the Rock Vault are the real band members from the 60's and 70's.
    Just depends what you are into.
    I go to Raiding the Rock Vault every trip.

    Personally, I would rather see Raiding the Rock Vault.

    Rock of Ages is more of a play/musical. I would rather be at a real rock concert where you can stand up and dance and sing along, than sit in a seat and watch a play.... but to each his own.

    Any Classic rock purist will choose Raiding the Rock Vault over ROA. REAL Rock stars.

    It depends on what you're after, really.

    If you're looking for a rock concert-type show put on by veteran rockers, definitely go see Raiding the Rock Vault. Howard Leese alone makes it worth it - a true rock god who's definitely not only in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the strength of the band he was in.

    If you want a plotted show with rock music and dancing in it, Rock of Ages is fine.

    Pretty much, if narrative is more important for you than experiencing the music from a fantastic group, RoA is the pick, if you want more of a concert experience with a great band, it's RtRV.

    For the record, I greatly prefer Rock Vault - it's not often you get to see this kind of lineup at a decent price at such a close proximity. Plus they gather in the hall outside after the show, so you can get their signatures and have a bit of a chat after the show too.
