It was my first time seeing him and if I didn’t know better I would have sworn it was Shaky. BRILLIANT!”
It was a GREAT night.
This was absolutely BRILLIANT , so much so I went home and got all my Shaky vinyl out! Ha ha.
Very good and what a FANTASTIC band, full of energy. Non stop entertainment, definitely worth seeing!
BRILLIANT show. We really enjoyed it!
BRILLIANT show. Not to be missed!
We travelled nearly 5 hours to see this show and it was well and truly worth it. Thank you for bringing the teenager out in me again!
GREAT show. Huge tribute to a British Legend, knock out performances!
It was VERY GOOD . I enjoyed hearing the Sunsets & early 80’s album tracks in particular.
Really GREAT night. Can’t wait to see it again.
BRILLIANT show, not to be missed if you love Rock n Roll!
We had a FANTASTIC night. So good!
What a GREAT show!
Thoroughly enjoyed the show tonight. My Granddaughter Harley sang “Green Door” all the way home!
ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT . Shut your eyes and you were him. Will definitely see you again!
The only theatre touring tribute show in the world celebrating Shakin' Stevens, the U.K.’s most successful pop artist of the 80’s! Expect all the hits, "This Ole House", "Green Door", "Oh Julie"... and loads of nostalgia.
"Whole Lotta Shakin'" - A Tribute to Shakin' Stevens. The rags to riches story based on the 40 hit’s of the Rock ‘n’ Roll icon and legend.
The second half is a full concert (including the famous denims and pink jacket) as would have been seen during the late 80s including all the hits “Green Door”, “This ole House”, “Oh Julie”, “You drive me Crazy” and many more.
Rebel Dean has the look, the moves and the voice so perfected that some people have commented "It's like watching the man himself".
Having toured the World's top theatre's for most of his professional life, Rebel has played live to over 1,000,000 people and is a consummate performer in his own right.
There has never been a theatre show celebrating the mega hits of the most successful rocker of the 80's until now! So come on this rockin' trip down memory lane, whether you're young or old! ~ By Dylan Clarke.
Whole Lotta Shakin'
Chosen from 10,000 applicants to perform on BBC1's 'Even Better than the Real Thing' hosted by Paddy Mc Guinness.
Kicking off with clips from 80s TV programmes he took me back to my teenage years. Musically the show started with the 3 non-Christmas number ones, and then rewound to tell the story of the Sunsets era. It was great to hear songs including Sea of Heartbreak, Donna, Sea Cruise, Sweet Little Sixteen and I Hear You Knocking (the latter interestingly performed after Rebel talked about the A Legend album, but using the Now Listen arrangement).
There were lots of great visuals on the backdrop of photos, tickets, posters, and newspaper clippings. The show then moved on through the Elvis musical and Oh Boy / Let's Rock shows featuring Elvis and Eddie Cochran medleys in the same style as Shaky's performances in those shows.
The second half of the show was dedicated to the 80s era, with a great selection of hits and album tracks. Rebel's singing and movement throughout were superb, it really was like being back at a Shaky gig in the early to mid-80s. He also had great rapport with the audience, wandering the aisles shaking hands several times. The band were excellent, particularly the drummer and I was super impressed that the lead guitarist was still a teenager.
A fantastic evening's entertainment and highly recommended! ~ Andy Gurd. 8/1/17
