“X Rocks” Revealed: Get To Know The Girls In Las Vegas’ Newest Topless Revue
Ready for a new kind of wild? Premiering Thursday, August 29th, “X Rocks” at the Rio is about to turn the party up. To get you excited about next week’s debut, we wanted to give you a sneak peek about “X Rocks,” along with fun trivia about the dancers.
For 11 years, husband and wife-team Angela and Matt Stabile produced the popular “X Burlesque” show. With the massive success of “X Burlesque,” the dynamic duo wanted to create a topless show solely dedicated to rock and burlesque.
The show includes songs by artists like Black Sabbath, The Beatles, Metallica, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators and In This Moment, among others. And what’s a rock show without the matching gear? These outfits are smokin’ hot, right down to the Slash-inspired top hats. Stage props include everything from fire and smoke to a motorcycle. Even an ice cream truck. But don’t worry — this won’t be anything like your childhood memory.
