TWO men wearing Pork Pie hats, suits and sunglasses are on their way to Southend. It can only mean one thing - the return of the Chicago Blues Brothers.

This time Jake and Elwood are on a new mission, promising to be "armed with a new stage set, new moves, and freshly laundered jailsuits" for the brand new Jailbreak Tour.

It features a nine piece live band and will be packed with over two hours of the blues, Motown and soul music, along with some comedy thrown in for good measure.

The Blues Brothers' story started in 1978 when John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd (aka Joliet Jake Blues and Elwood J Blues) first unleashed the might that was to become the Blues Brothers on the NBC show Saturday Night Live in America.

The award-winning Chicago Blues Brothers boast of being the world's leading tribute act to the original Blues Brothers.

As well as featuring hits from both of the Blues Brothers' movies including Everybody Needs Somebody, Raw Hide, Gimme Some Lovin, and Sweet Home Chicago, the show also includes classics from James Brown, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Otis Reading, Cab ‘Minnie the Moocher’ Calloway and many more.

The show takes place on Saturday July 30, at the Cliffs Pavilion, Station Road, Westcliff, at 7:30pm.

Tickets are £26.50 £25.50 £20.50 inclusive of booking fee.
