THE smash-hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages, which came over the Atlantic to the West End to a rapturous welcome by UK audiences, is now touring the provinces.

Its next stop is The Mayflower, Southampton, next month.

Following three years of ovation-inducing performances in London, the legendary 80s-themed musical features with more than 30 foot-tapping will have Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset fans rocking in the aisles.

It runs from September 9 to 13.
