Show Information


Featuring some of the greatest rock'n'roll songs ever written – Hound Dog, Blue Suede Shoes, Walk The Line, Matchbox, Fever, Memories are Made of This and Real Wild Child – global smash Million Dollar Quartet returns to Southampton for one week only. After worldwide success in the West End, Las Vegas, Canada and Broadway, this energetic musical tells the story of Sun Records and the day that Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins recorded some of the most iconic rock'n'roll songs of all time.

Inspired by the true story of the famed recording session where Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock'n' Roll" brought together four musical icons. On December 4, 1956, history was made when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. It brings to light the extraordinary story of broken promises, secrets, and the once-in-a-lifetime celebration of four friends that is both poignant and heart-warming.

Million Dollar Quartet transports you to Memphis, 1956 and brings that legendary night to life. Featuring a score of rock'n'roll hits which take you inside the recording studio with four major talents who play together as a red-hot rock'n'roll band for one unforgettable night. The recording session would become an iconic moment in music history, with the four of them being dubbed the "Million Dollar Quartet".
