Sing along to a gory feast of rock anthems

Long before the world became obsessed with the likes of Twilight and True Blood, hit musical Vampires Rock paved the way for all things supernatural, and it’s descending on the Waterside on Saturday for a night to remember at this spooky time of year.

Telling the story of Baron Von Rockula (Steve Steinman), Vampires Rock has become one of the most successful touring theatre shows in the country today.

The show is set in the aptly named Club Live & Let Die. The Baron is on the lookout for a new bride when along comes Pandora, a naive and geeky young singer looking to audition for a place in the club’s resident rock band.

Cue lots of comedy, fantastic costumes and a fair amount of fake blood as the Baron attempts to teach Pandora the ways of ‘Rock’.

And of course the tale is told through a whole horde of rock anthems known and loved by all ages including hits by Guns n Roses, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Meat Loaf and Queen.

Vampires Rock creator and star Steve Steinman said: “The problem with a lot of musicals is that you have to see them a few times before you know the songs and can sing along, but the singing along is the fun part. I wanted to create something where you could come to the show and be part of it from the very first time.

“I wouldn’t say Vampires Rock is a cult, but once you’ve been to see it you keep coming back.”

The show on Saturday starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £24.50.
