Mark continues his collaboration with the recent grand opening of ROCK OF AGES at the Venetian in Las Vegas.  Mark's iconic body of work from the decade welcomes theatergoers throughout the walls of the 1100 seat theater.  To see the 80s in all it's decadent glory through the lens of Mark "WEISSGUY" Weiss adds to the experience, as he almost single-handedly captured the images of the music  that "Rocked  the Ages!"

Mark "WEISSGUY" Weiss photos have been displayed throughout the Helen Hayes Theatre since the Broadway Musical ROCK OF AGES began its run there In March 2010.  It all started after Mark's pal, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, invited Mark to see him in his 11 week guest starring run as  Dennis Dupree. Mark photographed the Twisted Sister frontman on the infamous album cover "STAY HUNGRY" which featured the rock anthems performed in ROCK OF AGES, "I Wanna Rock"  and "We're Not Gunna Take It."  Weiss also photographed the  "SLIPPERY WHEN WET" album cover which gave us, "WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE"  by BON JOVI.
