Legends in Concert 2009
We saw the Legends in Concert show the other night and just loved it. Where else can you go to see a show with 5 different acts in one two hour show? We saw Alan Jackson, Tina Turner, The Blues Brothers, Rod Stewart, and Elvis. Of course the performers on stage were impersonators, but they acted and sounded real enough. These impersonators must have studied their subjects cause they had the voices, moves, and signature personalities while on stage. As close as you can get to the real thing without cloning.
Alan Jackson (Doug Brewin) started the show with "Good Time", "Don't Rock the Jukebox", "Chattahoochee", and "When Daddy Let Me Drive". He sang a total of about 10 songs, including "Where Were You" and "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere".
Tina Turner (Lori Mitchell Gay) took over the stage singing "Higher", "River Deep", "What's Love Got To Do With It", and "The Best". Lori definitely had Tina's moves and stage attitude. She finished with "Better Be Good To Me", and the crowd pleaser, "Proud Mary".
The Blues Brothers (Justin Clark as Elwood and Bucky Heard as Jake) came on stage in classic Blues Brothers fashion. They kept up the level of energy Tina left the crowd with singing "Give Me Some Lovin", "Everybody Needs Somebody", "Soul Man", and the classic "Rawhide". Everyone was "Shakin Their Tale Feathers" before the ending song for the first half, "Shout".
The excitement continued when Rod Stewart (Rob Caudill) opened the second half with "These Foolish Things", "Forever Young", "Rhythm Of The Heart" and "Some Guys Have All The Luck". He also sang one of my favorite songs, "Maggie May"
The last act for the night was the King of Rock and Roll, ELVIS (Dean Z). He opened with "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Teddy Bear". He said he wasn't feeling good but you couldn't tell. He sang "Love Me Tender", Return To Sender", and "Don't Be Cruel before his big finish with "JailHouse Rock". The entire cast came out at the end of the show.
All the acts were accompanied by the band Kevin Allen (guitar), Mark Owen (keyboards), Lynn Brown (drums), and Brian Zerbe (bass). Also on stage were the back up singers Tiffany Powers and Tori Dey Palumbo, and the wonderful dancers Stephanie Drey, Darcy Jones, Larry Miller, and Jamie Curry. Together they put on a wonderful show.
