Memphis

£22.00-£92.00

Direct from its smash hit Broadway run and a triumphant 55-city North American tour, the multi award-winning musical MEMPHIS is set to be London's hottest new destination!

With an original score by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan and a book by Joe DiPietro, Memphis takes place in the segregated '50s, where a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun fell in love with everything he shouldn't: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer. In the underground nightclubs on 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, the soul of a new era is dawning as the first incredible sounds of rock 'n' roll, blues and gospel are emerging into the mainstream.

The show won four Tony Awards in 2010, including Best Musical.

MEMPHIS will leave you exhilarated by its explosive blend of electrifying music, soaring emotion and roof-raising energy.
