The LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is excited to announce that its spectacular show, “Raiding the Rock Vault,” has signed a long term agreement to continue through 2014. 

“Raiding the Rock Vault” opened in March 2013 and has consistently received critical and audience acclaim, as well as having been rated Vegas’ No. 1 Show.  The show will reopen on January 24, 2014.  

“The LVH is beyond thrilled to have “Raiding the Rock Vault” continue in 2014,” said LVH Vice President of Entertainment, Rick White.  “The show promises to only get bigger and better this year with new cast members, songs and guest stars.  We truly believe it’s going to continue to be known as THE must-see show for visitors and locals alike.”

“We are honored to bring this incredible musical extravaganza back to the legendary stage which was the home of long term residencies by Elvis Presley, Liberace and Barry Manilow, as well as concert performances by many of the top rock, pop and country artists of all time,” said “Raiding the Rock Vault” producer Sir Harry Cowell.  

This amazing concert experience brings the history of rock ‘n’ roll to life with an all-star super group of musicians the likes of which is not seen anywhere in Las Vegas.  The legendary classic rock songs of the `60s, `70s and `80s that everyone immediately recognizes - anthems for a generation - are played with stunning accuracy by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Howard Leese [Guitar] (Heart), sensational guitar player Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake), phenomenal vocalists John Payne [Lead Vocals and Bass] (Asia), Robin McAuley [Lead Vocals] (MSG, Survivor), Paul Shortino [Lead Vocals] (Rough Cutt, Quiet Riot), Andrew Freeman [Lead Vocals and Guitars] (Lynch Mob, The Offspring), extraordinary drummer Jay Schellen (Badfinger, Asia), and keyboard whiz Michael T. Ross (Lita Ford Band).  In addition to this unbelievable roster of rock musicianship, rotating special guests will continue to be a part of the show.  Previous special guests included Lou Gramm, original lead singer of Foreigner, Bobby Kimball, original lead singer of Toto, founding member and lead singer of Yes, Jon Anderson, and Mickey Thomas of Starship.

The show itself revolves around the “Rock Vault,” a giant capsule found in the distant future and opened to reveal the history of classic rock.  Entertaining vignettes by actors, narration by acclaimed actor Richard Malmos, and historical videos on giant screens help move the story through time.  The show is, of course, highlighted by electrfying performances of rock classics from The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Free, The Eagles, Queen, Boston, Kansas, U2, Van Halen, AC/DC, Foreigner, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Supertramp, and many, many more.

Written by musician, producer and vocalist, John Payne (Asia), and Grammy Award-winning record producer David Kershenbaum (Joe Jackson, Tracy Chapman, Supertramp) “Raiding the Rock Vault” was born to give audiences an illuminating look at the history of rock and, for those who lived it, an exciting trip down memory lane. 

“Raiding the Rock Vault” will be performed Friday through Tuesday nights weekly (schedule subject to change) beginning January 24 at 8 p.m. in the LVH Theater.  Ticket prices for “Raiding the Rock Vault” range from $49 to $70 plus taxes and fees.
