As if beautiful half-naked women dancing around onstage weren't exciting enough, the new topless revue "X Rocks" adds high-voltage shock by setting 17 sensual performances to an intense soundtrack of favorite rock songs.
Showcased at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas (move over, Chippendales), "X Rocks" is unlike other revues in that the burlesque factor is just one heart-pumping element of the show. Cutting-edge scenery and head-banging music from artists such as Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Nine Inch Nails and Muse turn this spectacle up to 11.
"X Rocks" fills the void left behind by "Crazy Horse," which closed last year — especially since one of the dancers, as well as a producer, hail from this past favorite show. Nonetheless, "X Rock" maintains its own signature style with a heavy metal Americana look and feel.
interrupting the show, John Bizarre, a comedian featured on "The Tonight Show," performs a standup act that pokes fun at dating, marriage and sex.
In Sin City, glistening naked flesh can be a cliché. But with its rip-roaring soundtrack, "X Rocks" finds a way to stand out.
