She was just a small-town girl, living in a lonely world ... until arriving on the Sunset Strip circa 1987, where she meets a big-city boy. Nominated for five 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical and called "insanely fun" by Time Out New York, the Broadway smash hit Rock of Ages follows two teens with big dreams and even bigger hair as they face speed bumps on the road to love, set to the music of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and more. This hilarious, high-energy production includes such classic '80s hits as "Don't Stop Believin'," "We Built This City," "The Final Countdown," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Here I Go Again," "Can't Fight This Feeling" and "I Want to Know What Love Is." You won't want to miss this awesomely fun show about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on. Learn More

We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We probably wouldn't have attended this event if we hadn't gotten the discounted tickets. I'm so glad we went. My husband and I have been fans of the English Beat for 30 years. We have seen Dave Wakeling numerous times over the years in various bands. We were a little hesitant about this show as the last time we had seen him he was a little complacent and the show lagged. We were very happy with this show. His young backup band were talented and enthusiastic. We brought our 17-year old and his friend with us. My husband and I are familiar with the music of Reel Big Fish and like it, but our son is the true fan. It was our first time seeing RBF live. There were very entertaining. I would have been sorry to have missed this show. It was a fabulous way for our family to enjoy and evening.
The OC's skanking pranksters, Reel Big Fish will return to the Grove of Anaheim along with Birmingham, England’s ska pioneers The English Beat. Supporting both acts is Australia’s The Supervillains.
Reel Big Fish is on tour supporting its latest release Fame, Fortune and Fornication which was released in January. The compilation album is comprised of cover songs from the likes of John Mellencamp, Poison, The Eagles and Tom Petty. The group is also touring in anticipation of its new concert DVD Reel Big Fish Live! In Concert! which hits shelves July 21. The performance footage was taped before a sold-out, hometown crowd at the Grove of Anaheim on January 4, 2009.
By December of 1979, The English Beat were riding high in the UK charts with their first single, a smoking remake of the classic Smokey Robinson tune "Tears of a Clown". Over the course of the next five years The Beat toured relentlessly and released three studio albums: I Just Can't Stop It, Wh'appen and Special Beat Service. Their classic hits include as "Mirror in the Bathroom", "Save it for Later", "I Confess", "Stand Down Margaret" and their serene cover of Andy William's "Can't Get Used To Losing You.”
