Rolling Thunder Vietnam | Evening Performances
The powerful Rolling Thunder Vietnam takes audiences on an exhilarating and emotive 'Magic Carpet Ride'.Acclaimed as “a musical and dramatic triumph” that “reaches deep into the soul”, the uplifting rock drama features epic and stirring songs from the ‘60s and ‘70s, deeply-affecting stories of courage, sacrifice, resilience and love, and stunning visuals.
With a dynamic young cast backed by some of Australia’s most illustrious rock musicians, the show brings to vivid life a tumultuous world of anti-war protest, romance and revolution. The Vietnam War – the world’s first televised war – inspired many of the greatest rock songs ever written and produced, including classics by John Fogarty, Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Gladys Knight and Paul Simon.
Rolling Thunder Vietnam recaptures the pulse, fortitude and spirit of an extraordinary era through the intimacy of its storytelling, original war footage and the great songs that defined a generation: Fortunate Son, The Letter, Born to be Wild, What’s Going On, We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place, Killing Me Softly With His Song and Bridge Over Troubled Water, among others.
Get ready for the rock drama event of 2023.
