'Million Dollar Quartet' ready to rock April 13 at McCain Auditorium

Thursday, April 2, 2015

 


MANHATTAN — The McCain Performance Series is bringing rock 'n' roll to Manhattan in a show inspired by some of the biggest names in the genre who got together for a once-in-a-lifetime jam session. "Million Dollar Quartet" will begin to rock at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 13, in McCain Auditorium at Kansas State University.

The Tony Award-winning Broadway musical was inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time.

On Dec. 4, 1956, these four young musicians were gathered together by Sam Phillips, the "father of rock 'n' roll," at Sun Records in Memphis. "Million Dollar Quartet" brings that legendary night to life with a tale of broken promises, secrets, friendships and celebrations featuring hits including, "Blue Suede Shoes," "That's All Right," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "See Ya Later Alligator," "Fever," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog" and more.

Tickets start at $19.50, plus applicable taxes and fees, and are available now at the McCain Auditorium box office, online at http://www.k-state.edu/mccain, or by calling 785-532-6428.
