Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre

Presented by The MJR Group by arrangement with Neil O'Brien & Room 8

The smash-hit show, At Last: The Etta James Story, is set return to the UK next Autumn starring the sensational Vika Bull. Having wowed British audiences in 2017 as part of an ecstatically received short tour, Vika and the phenomenal Essential R&B Band start a 23 date visit, including a date at Bournemouth Pavilion.

Following its world premiere in Melbourne in 2013 At Last - The Etta James Story has since repeatedly packed theatres throughout Australia and New Zealand. In 2016 the show returned to Melbourne for a sell-out season at The Arts Centre and July saw the show triumph for a third season at The Sydney Opera House.

Telling the story of soul legend Etta James’ turbulent life and features some of her most beloved songs including Tell MamaSomething’s Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, the heart rending I’d Rather Go Blind , her iconic signature song At Last and more.

Vika puts her heart and soul into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by some of Australia’s finest and funkiest musicians.

During a long and tumultuous career that saw her win six Grammy Awards and a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Etta James has influenced a vast array of artists from Diana Ross, Janis JoplinStevie WonderThe Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart and is acknowledged as inspiring the careers of a new generation of singers from Christina AguileraJoss StoneAdele and the late Amy Winehouse

Sadly, Etta’s frantic recording and touring schedule coincided with her ever-growing addiction problems and over time she not only sang the blues…she lived the blues.

Mercifully, her passion for life and strength of character saw her conquer her demons and she continued to record and perform into her seventies.

With respect, this is her story.

Phenomenal vocals – outstanding! Broadway World
