LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Rock.com, the “Official Site of Rock Music,” has launched its new travel site, Travel.Rock.com, the world’s first website devoted entirely to rock music–themed travel. Designed for the concert goer wanting to save both time and money, the site allows visitors to shop 24/7 for the best possible deals on last-minute concert tickets, vacation packages, car rentals, cruises and more. Travelers can select from more than 55,000 hotels and resorts worldwide, including over 12,000 Hot Rate hotels, 28 car rental companies, all major cruise lines, and hundreds of airlines. And to accommodate the needs of global customers, the hotel booking engine is available in 12 languages and can book hotel rooms in more than 160 currencies.
“We’re making rock and roll dreams come true,” stated Rock.com founder and CEO Steve Newman. “Travel.Rock.com is destined to become the coolest travel service on the planet.”
Travel.Rock.com is launching with “The Beatles Story,” a 6-night UK package that includes tickets to a production of “We Will Rock You,” featuring the music of Queen. Future trips may be built around the results of several Rock.com international “You Rock” Award polls where, for the first time, a truly global audience can vote in some expected categories — such as greatest rock band, song, and singer — and in some unusual categories as well, such as rockers they’d like to bring back from the dead and bands benefiting the world community most. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
