Million Dollar Quartet to launch UK tour

Million Dollar Quartet is embarking on its first ever UK tour, opening at the Leicester Curve on 14th September 2016.

The tour will also play the Sheffield Lyceum, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Malvern, Birmingham Hippodrome, Edinburgh Festival Theatre, Leeds Grand, Glasgow King’s Theatre, Southampton Mayflower and Bristol Hippodrome with further spring 2017 dates to be announced.

Million Dollar Quartet opened on Broadway in 2010 before transferring to the West End the following year. The show is inspired by the true story of the famed recording session where Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll" brought together icons Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley.

Million Dollar Quartet  includes more than 20 rock ‘n’ roll hits, including Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, I Walk The Line and Great Balls of Fire. The show is written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux. Ian Talbot directs with casting to be announced.
