LAS VEGAS, NEV. The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and Greg Thompson, the producer who brought sexy shows back to Sin City, are launching an all-new, late night, rock n roll explosion, Greg Thompsons Erocktica Live! Sex, Sweat & Rock n Roll, premiering Feb. 18, 2005.

Thompson, along with long time choreographer, Mistinguett, have produced sexy late-night productions for Playboy, E! Entertainment Television and HBO. The duo currently produces Skintight at Harrahs Las Vegas.

Erocktica is the first show of its kind in Las Vegas, said Thompson, For starters, we are the first to incorporate a live band into a late-night production show, featuring classic rock n roll from bands like Guns N Roses, Aerosmith, Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Journey and Foreigner, just to name a few.

The Mistinguett dancers will be sexier than ever, and some of the hottest rock vocalists in the business will take the stage nightly including, the star of Greg Thompsons Erocktica Live!, Gabriella Versace, who gives new meaning to the expression totally exposed rock n roll. Singer, dancer and Italian bombshell, Versace, along with rocker Raymond Ray-J Jones and the sexy Mistinguett dancers head up Erockticas top-notch ensemble.

All-star classic rock band US/UK was assembled by Thompson exclusively for Erocktica Live!. This Las Vegas super group tears up the stage with their renditions of Aerosmiths Walk this Way, AC/DCs You Shook Me All Night Long, and Highway to Hell, to name a few.

To complete the rock n roll package, Mistinguett designed an array of the most stunning and sexy costumes for Greg Thompsons Erocktica Live!. Fishnets, feathers and leather are just a few of the provocative elements used to create the barely-there ensembles, hand crafted at Thompsons Seattle-based production facility.

Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as they take in something never before experienced in Las Vegas, said Mistinguett. Rock music is one of the sexiest forms of musical expression and Erockticas high-octane rock n roll vibe combined with beautiful, erotic dancing is a winning recipe.

We want audiences to see and hear something fresh, fun and provocative, and this show promises just that, Thompson said. This is not pretty boy, showgirl rock n roll and it is definitely not sexy acrobats& This show is in-your-face, MTV-style classic rock n roll and its going to be hot.

Greg Thompsons Erocktica Live! performances are offered nightly at 10 p.m., Wednesday through Monday (dark Tuesday). Tickets are $49.95 plus tax and available at the Rio Box Office.
