We picked up tickets for this show at the Apollo day of at Hot Tix. If you are a fan of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee, and Carl Perkins this is a must. Great energy and performances.

We didn't really know what to expect, not being big fans of 50's music, but we all enjoyed this show. The stand in for Jerry Lee Lewis was great, a real highlight of the performance. The ending was good fun, with an opportunity to dance along with the final few numbers. Cheesy but good fun.

We really enjoyed the show and had excellent center seats in section 3. The show was interesting with great singers and musicians. It is so pleasant being in an intimite theatre. It is located in the Lincoln Park area so we took a cab from downtown. Highly recommend.

Fabulous show in a small venue! Lots of fun and great music! Not a bad seat in the house! Only minor negative is that it's at the Apollo Theater which is a bit outside the main tourist areas. Needed to take a cab--about a 15 minute ride from our hotel on Michigan Avenue!

We loved this show! The theater is small, but the seats are comfortable (even for us - and we're not small). We sat in the front row and the performers were literally five feet away from us. The show was loud, fun, and kept our attention the whole time. There were four substitutions (a risk you take when seeing the... More

If you love rockabilly music then I have one word to describe the show and performances, "Excellent". Side note, the Apollo Theatre where the show performs is small, so any seat in the house is a good seat.
