Press and Journal: By Sheryl Livingstone.
With an electrifying guitar solo, pyrotechnics and fishnet clad ladies dancing in cages appearing in the first few seconds, I knew this was going to be a night like no other. And that’s exactly what Vampires Rock is – a musical like nothing before.
Now in it’s 10th year, the smash-hit rock musical returned to Aberdeen’s Music Hall on Saturday and follows the supremely evil Baron Von Rockula, owner of the Lie and Let Die Club.
In search of a new bride, the Baron – played by Steve Steinman – must convince the unsuspecting Pandora, who auditions for the new singing position to cross over to the dark side to live forever in Rock ‘n’ Roll Hell.
Using a mixture of musical theatre, stand-up comedy and audience participation, this musical is an explosion of energy and fun.
A string of rock classics including Guns n Roses Sweet Child O’ Mine and Alice Coopers Poison, had the audience singing it’s heart out while a performance of Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell recieved a standing ovation.
Steve Steinman once again wowed crowds with his huge voice and comedy flair while John Evans as Bossley the janitor had the audience in fits of laughter with his sometimes racy antics.
Next year will be the last run for Vampires Rock. So if you want to experience this one of a kind musical you’d better not miss it.
