Channeling the late, great Chuck Berry, Melvin has created a show that truly moves, even by his own high-octane standards.
The result is an amazing mix of classic songs – Sweet Little Sixteen, Memphis, C’est la Vie, Johnny B Goode and more – mixed with dance routines of the kind that have won Brown a faithful following worldwide.
Melvin says: “Chuck Berry changed music for ever. I grew up with his sounds all around me, he made a huge difference to my life and millions of others. If anyone deserves the title of King of Rock ’n’ Roll it’s him. This is a chance to have fun celebrating his music.”
An Edinburgh Fringe favourite in 2017, Brown is a flamboyant wizard of song and tap. A man and a show not to miss in Adelaide. NB: Bring your dancing shoes!
