    Or any reviews anywhere? I know it's only just opened.

    We like to go to a 'rock' show during our stay and as Rock Vault and Rock of Ages have both closed, this looked to be the next best thing. However the sample songs on their webpage don't really set my ears alight.

    Any other options?

    Thanks!

    I'm all about the bass.

    I caught one of the final RTRV shows at the Trop. It was awesome!
    I can't wait to see it again at HRH!

    its already not selling there pappering the house so we will see how long it lasts

    yes papering the house means givng away tickets not comps by casinso so it looks full just too drive any bussinnes into the venue so u might by a drink a cd or t shirt

    it basicaly means if the show doesnt pick up bussinees its wont be around long

    but its common for major concets and everthing if u kmow the right person papering happens more than u think as so much in vegas never sells. like they pappered black sabbath and garth brooks just too name a few

    We went to see the show last night. We are huge RTRV fans, didn't like Rock of Ages much due to them constantly only playing snatches of songs, very rarely any song in its entirety!
    Thoroughly enjoyed Tenors of Rock, they played a reasonable number of the same set as RTRV e.g. All Right Now, Stairway to Heaven, Livin' on a Prayer, Pour Some Sugar on Me, Love In an Elevator, Highway to Hell, they did a short medley of Led Zep, Here I Go Again, Bed of Roses, Bohemian Rhapsody and even Music of the Night( from Phantom of the Opera), Welcome to the Jungle, Satisfaction, All Day and all of the Night and a couple of Beatles songs.
    Theatre wasn't full, but reasonable crowd. Our only slight criticism was that just like ROA, they played small excerpts from classics such as Sweet Child of Mine, Carry on my Wayward Son and you're left disappointed not to get the full song!
    Very good rapport with the audience, they went out into the crowd a few times and a great reaction, standing ovation at the end. Well worth going to see.

    During my few years on this board, I've become more fluent in paperposterese...."papering the house" means giving away tickets to help fill the theater and hopefully generate some positive word of mouth.

    I often don't understand paperposters posts. I am glad someone can interpret them. I am probably missing some good info!
     
    Maybe not this year. Looking forward to 2021!

    Awe, thank you! We'll be hitting LV next month (21 days but who's counting,:whistle:). As it stands right now we are running here, there, and everywhere (bf is a little cry-ie about this, oh well). But certainly, if you are just going to be around, it would be very nice to meet you and say hi! Again, thank you for your offer, that is very kind of you!

    I saw it on Sunday. It's not a show with a plot like rock of ages. It's more like a concert where the group has a good rappor with the audience.

    I got the tickets for free, so it was worth it. I could see myself paying for it. It wasn't bad.

    Best part of the show is when they are not singing. They do an awesome job of butchering the songs. IMO I dont think the show will be around long
