Johnny Cash tribute to light up Swan Theatre

Worcester Editorial 28th Oct, 2013 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

THE INCREDIBLE career of music legend, Johnny Cash, is set to be celebrated at the Swan Theatre this week.

The American singer-songwriter, actor and author is considered to have been one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and now the UK’s number one tribute to the ‘Man in Black’ is back on the road with the show hitting the city on Friday (November 1).

Fronted by respected singer songwriter Clive John, and with the backing of The Spirit Band, the Johnny Cash Roadshow pays tribute to Cash with astounding accuracy, truly capturing the essence of what it was like to be at a real Johnny Cash show.

Featuring Jill Schoonjans as June Carter and two more talented ladies as the ‘Carter Sisters’, all aspects of Cash’s musical life will be covered, from his first hits in the 1950s right up to his very last, complete with all the stops that you would expect in between.

The audience will be treated to all the greatest hits, such as Ring of Fire and Walk the Line, as well as the Johnny and June duets Jackson and If I Were a Carpenter, and so many more – all the while accompanied by an amazing video backdrop with evocative images and clips taken during Johnny Cash’s life.

The only Johnny Cash Tribute to be endorsed by the Cash family, and astonishing in its accuracy in replicating Johnny’s unmistakable sound, this show is not to be missed, whether avid Cash fan or simply casual listener.

Tickets for the show, which starts at 8pm, cost £18.50 or £16.50 for concessions. To book call the box office on 01905 611427 or log onto www.theswantheatre.co.uk.
