San Diego, March 27, 2012 -- Take a trip as we ROCK THE DOME - get whirled on animated flights through space and fantasy landscapes, spinning abstract art and never-ending tunnels and passageways, all synched to awesome classic rock music. The dazzling imagery of mesmerizing retro graphics and full-dome CG is a flashback to another era -- pumped through our 16,000-watt digital surround sound system in 32 million pixels on a 76-foot dome -- and you help choose which song comes next! The Beatles or Rolling Stones? Led Zeppelin or Metallica? U2 or Pink Floyd?

ROCK THE DOME is an interactive digital concert featuring some of the greatest bands of all time. A mix of classic rock selections from the late 60's through the early 90's, it's much more than a soundtrack, featuring interludes and vignettes of the sights and sounds that symbolized the evolution of rock history. Pulsating graphics fill the screen while the Dome's state-of-the-art sound system play your favorites like you've never heard them before. Sit back and relax as you become completely immersed in a 360-degree swirl of imagery and music.

And … the audience helps DJ! At every show, audiences get to vote for which rock classic plays next. Each show features a unique playlist partially determined by your votes! They're all here - artists include The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, U2, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, Van Halen, The Doors, AC/DC, Rush, Jimi Hendrix, Midnight Oil, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
