Chicago Blues Brothers will be coming to the Hippodrome in Bristol.


THIRTY years of rock, rhythm and blues will arrive at Bristol's Hippodrome next month as one of the world's best Blues Brothers tribute acts hits the stage.

The Chicago Blues Brothers are returning to the UK after their successful Sweet Home Chicago tour.

The production celebrates more than 30 years of the Blues Brothers phenomenon and is jam-packed with more than two hours of the very best blues, soul and Motown.

The Blues Brothers first started making music in 1978 when John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, aka Joliet Jake Blues and Elwood J Blues, performed on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.

Now this tribute show features hits from both of the cult duo’s movies, including Everybody Needs Somebody, Raw Hide, Gimme Some Lovin’ and Sweet Home Chicago.

The show will be at the Bristol Hippodrome on July 19 from 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £22-26.90, are available from the theatre’s box office on 08448 713012 or online via

The Mercury has teamed up with the Hippodrome to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show.

The competition will close at 10am on June 19.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.
