Million Dollar Quartet

Posted on by Jaela Hall Posted in Around Town, Explore Chicago, Theatre | Comments Off

wallpaper-002If you have a love for music, you most likely appreciate the work of the greatest artists known to man, right? Artists such as Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash were unparalleled in their talent and the impact they had on music as a whole. If you consider yourself a music aficionado, you might also know about a special night when four young musicians gathered at Sun Records for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. The new smash-hit musical, Million Dollar Quartet, is a production inspired by the famed recording session bringing together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time in Memphis on December 4, 1956.

This widely successful production summons that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Matchbox,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Hound Dog” and much more! Seeing as the production has been extended through August 2014, there will be heaps of opportunity for you to get a seat. 

To attend what is sure to be a rockin’ night at the Apollo Theatre Chicago, get your tickets ASAP!
