Etta James Story At The Apex...
At Last - The Etta James Story, starring the sensational Vika Bull, comes to Bury St Edmunds on 12 April.
At Last tells the turbulent life story of soul legend Etta James and features some of her most beloved songs including Tell Mama, Something’s Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, the heart rending I’d Rather Go Blind, her iconic signature song At Last and more.
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.
Vika Bull puts her heart and soul into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by some of Australia’s finest and funkiest musicians. With respect, this is The Etta James Story.
At Last – The Etta James Story will be at The Apex on Wednesday 12 April at 7.30pm. Tickets are £22, ring the Box Office on 01284 758000, or visit www.theapex.co.uk for more information, or to book your tickets.
