If there was ever a moment to top Tom Cruise's epic volleyball scene from Top Gun, this is it. As mentioned last week, the cast of the Rock of Ages movie is going to rip the (nonexistent) roof off Sun Life Stadium from 1 p.m. until they finish.
Bon Jovi's "Wanted: Dead or Alive" and Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" are on the agenda for the massive stage show. We're betting that the pyrotechnics -- and hopefully some vocal gymnastics by Mary J. Blige -- are going to be ridiculous too.
Even if you can't make it -- day job, doh! -- New Times will bring you literally as much coverage from today's event as is legally possible. Get the directions and all the particulars from the event invite below.
Are you ready to get your faces melted? Director Adam Shankman invites
you to the set of New Line Cinema's arena-rock love story Rock of
Ages, who is throwing one head-banging concert party for the upcoming
filming of a scene in the Fort Lauderdale area.
Come and bring
your friends to all be extras (16 years and older only please), and join
us on the "Rock of Ages" set, and rock out like it's 1987 with our cast
to the sounds of such hits as "Wanted: Dead Or Alive" & "Don't Stop Believin'."
DATE: Monday, July 18th
TIME: 1:00pm - Work Finished
DRESS: Like the 80s! Big hair, make-up, and ALL BLACK rockin' clothes.
Exit 2X (Sun Life Stadium Toll Plaza) off of either North Bound or
South Bound Florida Turnpike. After exiting Turnpike, enter stadium
through Gate 2 to park.
