The Johnny Cash Roadshow returns to Blackpool Grand this April after receiving rave reviews and delighting music fans across the Fylde in 2014.

Clive John, the highly respected singer and songwriter, is back as ‘The Man in Black’ when he takes to The Grand’s stage as Johnny Cash to deliver his uncanny and powerful performance.

The Johnny Cash Roadshow is the only show of its kind to be endorsed by the Cash family, making it the definitive tribute to one of the world’s best-loved musicians.

American singer-songwriter Johnny Cash is widely considered to be one of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century, with his music spanning several genres including country, rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly, gospel and folk.

His turbulent life, career and relationship with fellow country musician June Carter were dramatised in the popular 2005 film Walk the Line, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon.

The Johnny Cash Roadshow is set to be bigger and better than before, now introducing a full live band, brass section and the Carter Sisters, along with narration and on-screen visuals of Johnny Cash’s sensational life and music career.

Featuring all of Cash’s best-known songs, including Ring of Fire, Folsom Prison Blues, I Walk the Line, and Jackson, plus many more, this is the best celebration of Johnny Cash in the world.

Fans of the legend and of live music will not want to miss this acclaimed tribute when The Johnny Cash Roadshow travels to Blackpool Grand for one night only on Sunday 17 April. Tickets are available from blackpoolgrand.co.uk or by calling 01253 290190. Concessions £19.50. Children £10.75 Under 26s Offer: £12.50 (first 50 tickets per performance)
