About this show

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!

In the underground nightclubs of 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.

Falling in love with a beautiful club singer, one young man’s vision to bring her voice and her music out of the clubs and onto the airwaves of America will fly in the face of cultural divides and spark a music revolution that will shake the world.

Starring the Queen of British Soul, multi-award-winning recording artist Beverley Knight (The Bodyguard), with original songs by GRAMMY winner and Bon Jovi co-founder David Bryan, and a gripping true-life inspired story from writer Joe DiPietro, MEMPHIS will leave you exhilarated by its explosive blend of electrifying music, soaring emotion and roof-raising energy.

6, 13 and 27 July 2015
