A live documentary in the style of "VH1 Storytellers" meets "Inside the Actor's Studio," RockTellz & CockTails will take audiences on an interactive journey through the stories, momentous turning points, the highs and the lows of rock 'n roll's most celebrated and fascinating stars. Featuring live performances, captivating Q&A sessions, archived film, recordings, photos and backstage footage, RockTellz & CockTails will bring back the intimate, artist-centric shows of yesteryear that helped put the Las Vegas Strip on the map.

I'm passionate about bringing fresh and exciting entertainment offerings to Las Vegas and RockTellz & CockTails will be a musical journey unlike any other."

"I've always been curious about the stories behind my favorite songs and how the artists created these moments in time," said Creative Director Steve Cohen. "RockTellz & CockTails will bring fans a new understanding of the artistic lives of their favorite performers, while presenting their legendary hits in a new and unique way. Envision being told when and how a song was written and then hearing it, sometimes stripped down, sometimes bigger than the original, just a few feet from the artist! It will be an exciting night of music."
