Complete with trademark Pork
Pie Hats and sunglasses, the legendary Blues Brothers are back and on a new
ARMED with a new stage set, new moves, and freshly laundered jail suits, Jake
and Elwood are coming to St Helens Theatre Royal with their brand new Jailbreak
Tour, on 21 May, 2016.
Celebrating over 30 years of The Blues Brothers phenomenon, this non-stop revue
is packed with over 2 hours of the very best Blues, Motown and Soul music from
both of The Blues Brothers movies, along with some side splitting comedy thrown
in for good measure!
It was all the way back in 1978 that John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd (aka Joliet
Jake Blues and Elwood J Blues!) 1st unleashed the might that was to become
Blues Brothers' on the NBC show 'Saturday Night Live' coast to coast in the
United States of America.
Did Belushi and Aykroyd realise they would initiate an abundance of folk wearing
pork pie hats and dark glasses, all professing to be on a mission from God?
Possibly… However, what they did become were the ultimate ambassadors of the
music they loved!
Featuring an elaborate 9 piece LIVE band, The Chicago Blues Brothers show is
packed with all your favourite hits from both of the Blues Brothers movies
including Everybody Needs Somebody, Soul Man, Respect, Shake a Tail Feather, Raw
Hide, Gimme Some Lovin, and Sweet Home Chicago.
The show also includes unforgettable classics from James Brown, Ray Charles,
Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Cab 'Minnie the Moocher' Calloway and many more!
Theatre manager, Chantelle Nolan said:-
"Chris Hindle and Gareth Davey's performances in The Chicago Blues Brothers,
along with their accompanying live band is guaranteed to get you off your seat,
dancing and jiving in the stalls! Join us for an unforgettable evening of rip
roaring entertainment but don't forget your pork pie hat and sunglasses!"
