EVENT| AT LAST — THE ETTA JAMES STORY (@AtLastEttaJames)

atlastThe smash-hit show, At Last — The Etta James Story, is set return to the UK next Autumn star­ring the sen­sa­tion­al Vika Bull. Hav­ing wowed Brit­ish audi­ences in 2017 as part of an ecstat­ic­ally received short tour, Vika and the phe­nom­en­al Essen­tial R&B Band start a 23 date vis­it, kick­ing off in High Wycombe on Fri­day Septem­ber 21st 2018. Please see full tour dates below.

Fol­low­ing its world première in Mel­bourne in 2013 At Last — The Etta James Story has since repeatedly 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 and 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.

With respect, this is her story. 

Don’t miss re-liv­ing the soul­ful songs of Etta James, chan­nelled through super­star Vika Bull and band, across the UK next spring. Tick­ets go on gen­er­al sale Wed­nes­day 6th Decem­ber 2017.
