The 80’s Welsh answer to Elvis finally has his own tribute show! Expect all the hit’s – “This ole House”,”Green Door”, “Oh Julie”…..and loads more!.
“WHOLE LOTTA SHAKIN'” – A tribute to the 80’s Legend. The rags to riches story based on the 40 hits of 80’s rock n roll icon Shakin’ Stevens.
The first and only theatre touring show celebrating the rise to fame and music of Shakin’ Stevens ending in a concert he would have performed in the late 80’s.
Starring Rebel Dean (BBC Casualty,West End, London Palladium, That’ll be the Day, Rockin’ on Heaven’s Door, Elvis the Musical, Four Steps to Heaven, Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat etc) with live band and projection screen.
The first half follows the steps to stardom of the young Welshman, through his early songs with his first band – The Sunsets,recording studio’s and his big break in “ELVIS THE MUSICAL”.
The second half is a full concert (including the famous denims and pink jacket) as would have been seen during the late 80’s including all the hits “Green Door”, “This ole House”, “Oh Julie”,”You drive me Crazy” and many more.
Rebel said ” I first wrote the show back in 1998 when I was starring in The West End for the legendary producer Bill Kenwright in a very successful musical called “4 Steps to Heaven”. I was about to star as Elvis in “Elvis the Musical” for Bill Kenwright straight after that on a UK tour and thought there have been musicals about Buddy Holly,Roy Orbison,Elvis and others, but none for our homegrown Welsh rocker! I have been so busy touring 200+ shows a year with other shows, making albums,videos and featuring in films to actually get around to making the dream a reality, until now. I’ve had over the years so many people say how similar we are on stage and even his family complimented me when we played Cardiff’s St.Davids Hall, similarly when I met them afterwards.”
