Raiding the Rock Vault producer Sir Harry Cowell believes he has found the perfect home for the musical tribute show featuring the music of The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Queen and more of biggest names in rock history. And it’s hard to argue. The show starts its new run inside Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel in March.

“We couldn’t have picked a more fitting show to bring to Vinyl,” Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel, said in a statement. “Hosting a full-scale production in an intimate venue like Vinyl will give fans an up-close rock ’n’ roll experience like they’ve never seen before.”

Raiding the Rock Vault, which has run at the Westgate and Tropicana resorts before this latest move, tells the story of classic rock from the 1960s through the ’80s, performed by members of some well-known veteran rock bands. The show’s rotating lineup includes guitarist Howard Leese (Heart), a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member; guitarist Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio); vocalist Paul Shortino (Quiet Riot); drummer Jay Schellen (Asia, Badfinger); bassist Hugh McDonald (Bon Jovi); and guitarist Tracii Guns (Guns N’ Roses, L.A. Guns).

The show begins its new life at Vinyl March 11 and will run Saturday through Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. Ticket info can be found at
