Trivia

The concert scenes were shot at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. It had fallen into disrepair and was due for a renovation after filming was completed. This essentially meant that the production team could trash the theater, knowing that it was going to be refurbished after they had gone. See more »

Goofs

When Auden walks straight out into the street, one car barely misses him and two more (blue car and the same orange car that Nada and her band arrive at the theatre in) skid to one side and almost crash. In the next shot, the blue car is still there, but the orange car (which should have been blocked in by the blue car) is gone. See more »

A Classic Rock Parody Equal to Spinal Tap
22 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a great parody! I love it! Being a musician I loved how all the acts play off King Blues. Lee Ving is Piggy and is at his best in this movie. Malcolm Mcdowell plays the part of the Egotistical Rock Star as only he can. Howard Kaylan of Flo and Eddie (AKA the Turtles) plays a great parody of Jerry Garcia. Fabian and Bobby Sherman make great henchmen for bad guy Colin (Ed Begley Jr.) Lou Reed As Folk Singer Auden is eccentric and closes the movie as only he can. Director Allan Arkush captures the world of Rock Concerts perfectly with all the characters you would fine at any event. If you can't tell I love this movie. A must see for any rocker who enjoys a good comedy about the industry. Needs to be on DVD!!
