SET VISIT: ‘Rock of Ages’!

We head to Miami, Florida to visit the set of Rock of Ages I have visited dozens of movie sets over the past four and a half years - fantasies, action-thrillers, comedies, and dramas - but I've never stepped foot on the set of a musical until last August, when I found myself immersed in glam rock awesomeness on the Miami set of Rock of Ages. As I mentioned in my set visit preview a few weeks ago, director Adam Shankman and his crew transformed a few blocks of Miami into a fantastic, 1987 version of Hollywood's Sunset Strip for this adaptation of Chris D'Arienzo's Broadway stage play.

When I first arrived, we not only saw iconic Strip locales such as the Rainbow Room, Guitar Center, and Tower Records, but there were also a slew of 80s cars driving to the set. Among them were a Pontiac Fiero, Volkswagon Cabriolet, Chevy Monte Carlo, Datsun 280Z, Chevy Chevette and even a Dodge Reliant K (a.k.a. the K-Car). There was also a Shell gas station they used for the production, and it was said that when shooting wasn't taking place, several cars were seen pulling into the station, drawn to the $1.17 per gallon price on display.

Ren goes up against Bomont's reverend (Dennis Quaid) to challenge the ban with the help of the minister's daughter (Julianne Hough, Dancing with the Stars) and in the process reminds the entire town that dancing is more than youthful exuberance-it's a celebration of life.
