40 years after the cult movie was released, the hit show from London's Westend will be on its anniversary tour in 2021!
40 years ago, on June 16, 1980, the movie "The Blues Brothers" premiered in Chicago. The legendary appearance of John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd on the US television show "Saturday Night Live" in 1976 is considered as the birth of the crazy music duo. Unfortunately Aykroyd's congenial partner John Belushi died two years later at the age of only 33. Jake and Elwood Blues ™ - the stage names of the Blues Brothers - remained immortal! In 2021, the cult brothers, characteristically dressed in black suits, black hats and sunglasses, returned and conquered the stages of Europe again with the successful live show "THE BLUES BROTHERS - The Original Production from the London Westend".
On the big anniversary tour through Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the live spectacle is guested in Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna and Zurich, among others. Dan Aykroyd himself and Judith Belushi, the widow of John, are in charge. Twelve musicians and singers perform all of the legendary hits by the Blues Brothers: from “Everybody needs somebody” to “Peter Gunn”, “Respect”, “Minnie the moocher” to “Jailhouse Rock” and “Soulman”.
Tour dates are coming soon.
„Singing along and dancing in front of the seats is a must here. The musical show, which defies legendary rhythm and blues, rock 'n' roll and soul hits, is exciting.“
„Brad Henshaw lived up to Jake's physiognomic and vocal excellence - congenially he slips into the role of the snazzy, detached, charismatic and amiable blues brother.“
„Brad Henshaw and Mark Lawson, who take on the roles of the famous main characters, delight the audience as brothers "Jake and Elwood Blues".“
„ Music spectacle with excellent actors“
„Brad Henshaw as Jake Blues and Christopher Chandler as his brother Elwood Blues know how to authentically implement their roles and sweep the audience away from the beginning to the last minute.“
