Dee Snider returned to the Great White Way earlier this week joining “Rocktopia” at the Broadway Theatre in New York City. The singer belted out the Twisted Sister hit “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and dedicated the tune to the striking teachers in Oklahoma.
Tens of thousands of Oklahoma teachers and educators poured onto the lawns and streets surrounding the state capitol on Monday as part of a massive walkout over state school funding. Under gray morning skies, a group of music teachers hefted brass instruments and blasted into the opening chords of a classic rock song synonymous with fist-pumping, 1980s MTV and big hair.
The producers of the Broadway concert ROCKTOPIA are thrilled to announce that rock icon Dee Snider, lead singer of multi-platinum-selling band TWISTED SISTER, will triumphantly return to Broadway as a special guest vocalist in the show for the fourth week of its limited engagement, April 9 – 15, 2018. An explosive concert event that fuses the most iconic 20th-century rock with world- renowned classical masterpieces, ROCKTOPIA features the works of musical innovators across centuries—including Journey, Mozart, Queen, Beethoven, Aerosmith, Handel, Led Zeppelin, Tchaikovsky, U2, Heart, Puccini, The Who and more—performed by an elite lineup of vocalists, a five- piece rock band, a thirty-person choir, and a twenty-piece orchestra. ROCKTOPIA celebrates its opening night at the Broadway Theatre tonight, Tuesday, March 27. Tickets are now on sale at Telecharge.com.
TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider returned to Broadway on Monday, April 9, joining the company of "Rocktopia" at the Broadway Theatre. Last seen in "Rock Of Ages", Snider will bring down the house through April 15 as he sings his band's classic "We're Not Gonna Take It". In keeping with the theme of "Rocktopia" — a seamless blending of classical music and face-melting rock — Snider's tune is also given an instrumental twist performed by violinist Máiréad Nesbitt and guitarist Tony Bruno. TheaterMania was on hand for his first performance and has posted the video clip below.
Looks like Rocktopia wants to get twisted.
