All of your favorite rock and roll hits of the ‘80s and ‘90s are coming back to Palm Springs in a big way – and rest assured, it will rock you. From Queen to Heart to The Killers, the musical essence of these two decades will have you dancing along during the latest show to hit the Hard Rock Palm Springs: “TOP ROCK: An ‘80s and ‘90s Interactive Rock Concert Experience.”

The 75-minute rock and roll performance returned to the Hard Rock’s stage on August 1, opening to Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and ending with “Somebody Told Me” by The Killers. Twelve talented performers sing and dance to a medley of ‘80s and ‘90s hits throughout the show, accompanied by a five-piece band and plenty of audience members who join in on the fun as their favorite songs take the stage.

Audience members have a chance to become part of the show, too, as this interactive experience often has the performers dancing amongst the tables on poles – or on an audience member’s lap!

Artists featured during “TOP ROCK” include Prince, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Aerosmith, Journey and the Eagles. Some songs are performed a capella while others feature a gender switch on the vocals, but all will have you singing along as the show goes on.

“TOP ROCK” is produced by Live It Up Productions (LIU), a production company headed by Palm Springs local Jim Casey. LIU brought “TOP ROCK” back to the Hard Rock Hotel this month after a successful run in Los Angeles.

“TOP ROCK” will continue its run at the Hard Rock Hotel on Friday and Saturday evenings through the end of September. For more information, check out the Live It Up Productions website
