LAS VEGAS (August 22, 2022) – Raiding the Rock Vault will be celebrating its 1,500th performance in the custom-built showroom inside Duomo at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino on August 26.

Conceived 10-years ago by legendary Manager Simon Napier-Bell (Yardbirds, Marc Bolan, Wham!, George Michael), Simon’s now famous observation was, “the idea for Raiding the Rock Vault came to me when I was sitting rather full of champagne late one night in a rock club in Bangalore, India. The covers band was playing one classic rock song after another. I realized this was the greatest set of songs any band could ever do. So why not put together a band of great named rock musicians and play them for the world as a complete show.”

Enter partner Sir Harry Cowell, who assembled a band, a production that included a visual media history of rock, and a crew that has been loyal and committed to the show ever since.

The first performance was in Los Angeles at the Mayan Theatre on November 29, 2012.

In short order, Sir Harry secured a residency at LVH that debuted on March 9, 2013 to great success and the journey has happily continued, winning an unprecedented 8 consecutive Best Of Las Vegas, voted by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal and consistently a top-ranked show on TripAdvisor.

“It is rewarding to reflect on the evolution of the show over the decade, the partners who supported us along the way, the fan base that increases year-in year out and become an established part of the Vegas entertainment fabric. It just feels like home,” says Sir Harry. 

Raiding the Rock Vault tells the story of classic rock from the 1960s to the 1980s presented by rock stars who performed them.

The production brings the history of rock ‘n’ roll to life, featuring classic anthems by the biggest acts in music, including The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Free, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Boston, Kansas, Aerosmith, Van Halen, AC/DC, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Heart, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and more.

Raiding the Rock Vault will perform Saturday-Wednesday, at 8:00pm, from September 3, 2022 with a Rock Star Package upgrade available with any ticket for $99, which includes a meet and greet with the rock stars prior to the show, a souvenir VIP laminate, and concert program.
