The venue will once again host this must see event for any true musical theatre lover, featuring the most famous tunes from all major rock shows in the last 50 years. Directed and devised by Hugh Wooldridge, the production will count on a A-list cast including world-renowned actors such as Adam Pascal, Kerry Ellis and Christian Lund. With musical direction by Stuart Morley and Kevin Amos, the concert will collaborate with a charitable cause which provides fun and entertainment to seriously ill children in hospitals and hospices across the UK.
We wanna ROOOOOCK! This is definitely more than a line from one of the best-known bands in History. It’s more than a song, it’s more than a state of mood – it’s almost a lifestyle. But not the kind of lifestyle that only appeals to this music genre biggest freaks. No, this is a motto for everyone who’s passionate and demanding about live shows. Because when really love theatre – you want to experience it, you want to live it, you want it to rock you! But hardly ever do we have such a great chance to enjoy the most powerful rock tunes written ever for the stage for the last fifty years. Last year, there was a once in a lifetime opportunity taking place at Eventim Apollo Hammersmith. But it seems the crave for more has been just too big. Yes, you guessed right – IT’S BACK!
It’s been finally announced that The Best of Rock Musicals will return to one of London’s most iconic venues by the beginning of summer.

With musical direction by Stuart Morley (We Will Rock You, Big, and Only Fools and Horses) and Kevin Amos (Jesus Christ Superstar) and coreographies by Kevan Allen (Jesus Christ Superstar), the concert will feature an A-list cast from all around the world, including Adam Pascal (Rent); Kristina Love (Tina), Sabrina Weckerlin (Wicked), Elvie Ellis (The Little Shop of Horrors), Christian Lund (Phantom of the Opera), David Michael Johnson (Jesus Christ Superstar); and London’s Kerry Ellis (Wicked), Ricardo Afonso (Jesus Christ Superstar), Patrick Smyth (Strictly Come Dancing) and Debbie Kurup (The Prince of Egypt), all of them accompanied by the West End Chorus and the City of London Philharmonic AllStars.“This event is a must for all who love rock musicals and musical theatre», says director and creator of the show Hugh Wooldridge. «Come along again on our 21st birthday and join in the fun and support this most splendid charity, whilst raising the roof of the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith.”
