Million Dollar Quartet- Live at the Paramount

Add to Calendar 09/13/2017 12:00 AM 10/30/2017 12:00 AM Million Dollar Quartet- Live at the Paramount There was no plan for Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins to record together on December 4, 1956, but as fate would have it, they did and left behind a historic and mind-blowing album. Million Dollar Quartet tells that story, with all the raw energy and monumental talent you’ve come to expect from these music giants. Nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Musical and a win for Best Supporting Actor, Million Dollar Quartet features some of the biggest and best songs of all time, including “Peace in the Valley,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “I Walk the Line,” “Hound Dog” and “Great Balls of Fire.” This is the show that ran in Chicago from 2008 to 2016 and spanned more than 2,500 performances. Critics called it “the most exuberant theatrical event,” “dazzling from first beat to last” and “the best live rock ‘n’ roll show I have ever seen.” It is the third longest-running show in Chicago theatre history and the Paramount is about to do its production of it. Be there. paramountaurora.com/events/million-dollar-quartet/ Paramount Theatre, 23 E Galena Blvd, Aurora, IL 60506, USA
