The smash-hit show, At Last – The Etta James Story, will open at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre before embarking on a spring tour
The show, starring the sensational Vika Bull, makes its U.K. debut at the Epstein Theatre on Tuesday, 28th March 2017
Following its world premiere in Melbourne in 2013, At Last – The Etta James Story has since packed theatres throughout Australia and New Zealand. In 2016, the show returned to Melbourne for a sell-out season at The Arts Centre and July saw the show triumph for a third season at The Sydney Opera House.
Telling the story of soul legend Etta James’ turbulent life, the show features some of her most beloved songs including Tell Mama, Something’s Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, the heart rending I’d Rather Go Blind, her iconic signature song At Last and more. Vika puts her heart and soul into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by some of Australia’s finest and funkiest musicians.
During a long and tumultuous career that saw her win six Grammy Awards and a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Etta James has influenced a vast array of artists from Diana Ross, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart and is acknowledged as inspiring the careers of a new generation of singers from Christina Aguilera, Joss Stone, Adele and the late Amy Winehouse.
Sadly, Etta’s frantic recording and touring schedule coincided with her ever-growing addiction problems and over time she not only sang the blues… she lived the blues.
Mercifully, her passion for life and strength of character saw her conquer her demons and she continued to record and perform into her seventies. This is her story, told with respect.
Epstein Theatre General Manager Rebekah Pichilingi commented, “Etta James was an absolute legend with a phenomenal talent so don’t miss this amazing show!”
Tickets are now on sale so don’t miss re-living the soulful songs of Etta James, channelled through superstar Vika Bull and her band at the Epstein Theatre on 28th March.
Tickets are priced at £27.50 and are available from the Box office, by telephone on 0844 8884411 or online at www.epsteinliverpool.co.uk.
