Raiding The Rock Vault

Raiding The Rock Vault Creative and Dreams Music Network, LLC and Fred Cannon are proud to welcome RAIDING THE ROCK VAULT to our family of groundbreaking visionaries.

In 1976, Cannon met Simon Napier-Bell. They became friends and have followed each other’s careers throughout the many decades. When Simon joined up with Sir Harry Cowell, Cannon knew they’d produce something exceptional. What he didn’t know is that they had also partnered with his old friend John Payne from Asia. Together they created an exciting project, RAIDING THE ROCK VAULT, which is now receiving rave reviews in Las Vegas and is bound to become a classic rock show that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

RAIDING THE ROCK VAULT is “The Story of Classic Rock,” comprised of members from some of the greatest rock bands in history.

Narrated, sung and acted along with compelling imagery and historical footage, RAIDING THE ROCK VAULT transports the audience through a magical musical journey from 1950 to 1990, with classic anthems from The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Eagles, Queen, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Van Halen, Journey, Toto, Free, Bryan Adams and more, truly boasting “The Greatest Set List Ever.”
