The Blues Brothers - The Smash Hit will be showing at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry from Monday to next Saturday (April 29 to May 4).

Featuring original members from the West End productions, The Blues Brothers – The Smash Hit will be bringing the classic hits and capers of Jake and Elwood Blues to life live on stage.

Last time round they smashed box office records, crashed, crooned and rocked their way into the lives of everyone who came along.

Armed with new twists, new moves and freshly laundered suits, Jake and Elwood are on a mission to bring ‘Soul and Blues’ into the heart of the West Midlands.

Joining them on stage are the fabulous Bluettes: three sassy ladies with attitude and voices to knock you off your perch and an incredible Blues Brothers band. As well as some new songs The Blues Brothers will be performing all of their classics - Everybody, Gimme Some Lovin, Think, Shake a Tailfeather, Sweet Home Chicago, plus loads, loads more.

Once the show starts, no one can sit still - with their improvised dance routines, Jake and Elwood Blues are both unusual and as fast as lightening. The lively rhythm and blues and the powerful soul by the Brothers turn every audience upside down.

Fans are advised to dust off their pork pie hats, dig out their shades, put on their best dancing shoes.

During the Seventies, the crazy duo were born from a comedy act by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, and after the success of their first album, Briefcase Full of Blues, and an American tour, a chaotic, spectacular comedy film followed, filled with music and special guest appearances.
