The Rock of Ages movie adaptation filming has reached stadium size. After filming Tom Cruise's flowing locks during June inside Revolution in downtown Fort Lauderdale and turning a nearby landfill into the Hollywood Hills, the cast and crew are setting up next week for the most grandiose shots yet, at Sun Life Stadium.
The event is open to the hard-rocking public, ages 16 and up. Aside from getting to watch Cruise perform Bon Jovi's "Wanted: Dead or Alive" and Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" and the chance to be a tiny little screaming speck in a major motion picture, take part in a spectacle that will likely be remembered as the most fans inside Sun Life Stadium since well before the 2011 Marlins campaign began.
All the glory takes place on Monday, July 18. So start requesting the day off now, and go get some tight black leather and Aqua Net. Full details below.
