This Christmas, see a musical inspired by the recording session that brought together these rock ‘n’ roll grandees for the first and only time.
On December 4, 1956, these four star musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis, the studios of legendary record producer Sam Phillips, for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever.
Martin Kemp joins the cast as legendary record producer Sam Phillips, the man who brought the four recording stars together to create music history. Martin rose to fame as the bassist in one of Britain’s best-loved bands, Spandau Ballet, with over 25 million records sold worldwide, and a string of number one hits. No stranger to the screen, Martin became a household favourite playing loveable rogue Steve Owen in Eastenders, for which he won a number of awards. Martin’s numerous TV and film credits include The Krays,Sugar Town, Back in Business, and Love Lies Bleeding, as well as many series of one-off dramas for ITV.
Million Dollar Quartet brings the 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 many more.
Discover the true story of the night that became a defining moment of rock ‘n’ roll history.
