A show which pays tribute to an American blues band is coming to Weston-super-Mare next week, and readers could win front-row tickets to see it for free.

The Chicago Blues Brothers: Motown Mission is going to The Playhouse, in High Street, on September 21 at 7.30pm.

The award-winning spectacular is Europe’s biggest and best-loved production of The Blues Brothers.

The show is a musical mash-up which has jump-started the legacy of Jake and Elwood Blues, played by Chris Hindle and Gareth Davey respectively, for a new generation with its modern twist on a cult classic.

Back with a new mission for 2018, The Chicago Blues Brothers are heading for Detroit to take on some of the biggest and most loved Motown anthems along with the Blue Brothers classics.

Hits from Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, James Brown, The Temptations, and The Four Tops will also be performed.

The duo are backed by the multi-award-winning CBB Band and the Sweet Soul Sisters, along with a new stage set and state-of-the-art full stage projection.

The Chicago Blues Brothers is performed with class and showmanship by a troupe of some of the finest entertainers working in modern musical theatre.

The show pays homage to the American blues and soul revivalist band which was founded in 1978 by comedy actors Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live.

Dan played lead vocalist Jake while John portrayed harmonica player and vocalist Elwood.

Tickets, priced £24.50, are available at or on 01934 645544.

The Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer two readers a pair of tickets to the show.
