Memphis The Musical - Launch Event Footage feat Beverley Knight
Following last week’s Memphis The Musical launch event at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, we are pleased to make available the video footage from the event.
The footage features interviews and the unforgettable performances from the two leads, Beverley Knight, Killian Donnelly as well as Bon Jovi’s David Bryan, who composed the original score for the musical.
Inspired by true events from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, Memohis follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break.
“David Bryan evokes the powerhouse funk of James Brown, the hot guitar riffs of Chuck Berry, the smooth harmonies of the Temptations and the silken, bouncy pop of the great girl groups of the period,” wrote Charles Isleworth, of the New York Times.
Memphis The Musical opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London from October 9, 2014.
