Rock 'n' Roll Paradise
Friday 18 November 2011
Rock 'n' Roll Paradise is a brand new rock 'n' roll show that does exactly what it says on the tin. There's no plot, no storyline, simply a rock 'n' roll show where the music plays the leading role.
The incredibly talented cast bring to life the spirit of the rock 'n' roll era, reminding you at every turn why this music has stood the test of time. Just try not tapping your foot as Jerry Lee rips into Great Balls of Fire with a passion. Feel the shivers in your spine as Roy Orbison soars gracefully through his classic songs. Watch with delight as Eddie Cochran and Buddy Holly explode onto the stage like the first guitar-heroes; with slick moves and engaging energy they power through those wonderfully bright optimistic songs of theirs. And that's just the first half!
The second half opens with a concert within a concert as we're taken through the years of Elvis' later tours, complete with Vegas jump-suits, belts and rings. We are reminded of not only how incredible a performer and singer Elvis Presley was, but also how gracious he was; never taking himself too seriously, and always appreciative. And then from out of nowhere we are back with Buddy, Eddie, The Big O and the others, the energy building to fever pitch, leaving the audience demanding more.
