This incredible show saw its world premiere in Melbourne in 2013 and since then has toured all the capital cities in Australia (twice), completed two sold-out seasons at The Sydney Opera House and, in November of 2014, rocked an enthralled Kiwi crowd at the prestigious Aotea Centre in Auckland, New Zealand.
In 2015 At Last – The Etta James Story embarked on an extensive tour of regional centres throughout Australia that proved so popular that the majority of shows sold-out weeks before opening.
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 Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones and
Rod Stewart and is acknowledged as inspiring the careers of a new generation of singers from Christina Aguilera, Joss Stone, Adele 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.
Starring the sensational Vika Bull the smash-hit narrative concert tells the story of soul legend Etta James’ turbulent life and features some of her most beloved songs including Tell Mama, Something’s Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, the heartrending I’d Rather Go Blind, her iconic signature song At Last and many more. Vika puts her heart, soul and funk into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by the sizzling-hot The Essential R&B Band.
