THE award-winning Chicago Blues Brothers are bringing a brand new show to Glasgow.

Motown Mission will arrive at the King's Theatre on August 31, promising to be a high energy, all-singing, all-dancing songfest featuring more than 40 smash hits.

Fronting the nine-piece band is Chris Hindle as Joliet ‘Jake’ Blues and Gareth Davey as Elwood Blues. Chris said: “One of the things I love about being a Chicago Blues Brother is the chance to carry on the legacy of the legendary John Belushi as Jake Blues; he was a crazy, funny guy who was unpredictable and wild – very much like me.

"Motown Mission is a great show – we perform original music from the Blues Brothers films as well as many hits from the 50s, 60s, and 70s and wherever we go, audiences know most of the numbers – it’s a total blast from start to finish."

The Chicago Blues Brothers capture the sound, energy, humour and characters that propelled John Landis’ classic 1980 film to worldwide fame, resulting in the likes of John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Carrie Fisher, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles achieving worldwide cult status.
