Reality TV star Audrina Patridge (“The Hills” and “Dancing With the Stars”) took the stage at Crossroads in House of Blues at Mandalay Bay on Sunday as part of the Hell Bent for Vegas Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy Camp.
While filming a segment for her new luxury lifestyle show “1st Look,” Patridge took vocal instruction from rock star turned camp counselor Lita Ford (The Runaways).
On Sunday evening, the two performed an original song — no “Kiss Me Deadly”? Bummer! — while fellow campers joined them on guitar, bass and drums. Zakk Wylde, best known as the guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, opened for the ladies with a performance of “Crazy Train.”
Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy Camp provides music fans the opportunity to jam with legendary rock stars, write and record original songs, participate in classes and perform onstage.
Mandalay Bay and Crossroads at House of Blues host the Gene Simmons Rock Camp from March 27-30 and Blues Fantasy Camp from April 10-13.
