The Chicago Blues Brothers

This award-winning spectacular is Europe’s biggest and best-loved production of the Blues Brothers – and it’s coming to Middlesbrough Theatre on Saturday, March 11.

The show is a high-octane, adrenaline-pumping musical mash-up that presents the best material from the original Blues Brothers movies and is jam-packed full of songs by legends such as Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Tina Turner, Cab Calloway – plus many other blues, soul, Motown and funk classics and a few surprises thrown in along the way.

It’s a show that truly captures the sound, energy and persona that propelled the film to a cult status that still thrills audiences worldwide today.

Back with a brand-new production for 2017 with an elaborate all-new stage set, the Chicago Blues Brothers are taking you back to 1980 to finish the concert at the Palace Ballroom Hotel.

This show is a powerhouse two-hour song-fest with over 40 hits performed live on stage in the concert that never finished.

The Chicago Blues Brothers is a joyous hoot, a musical riot, a juiced-up jamboree of the coolest, funkiest soul, blues and Motown hits performed with style, class and showmanship by a troupe of some of the finest entertainers working in modern musical theatre.

Infectious, dazzling, riotous, exuberant and spirited, the legacy of Jake and Elwood has been jump-started for a new generation with an energy that’s impossible to resist.

The Chicago Blues Brothers are on a mission once again – in a high-octane, on-stage party you can’t afford to miss.
