What can I say !! Absolutely brilliant show. Very cleverly done, loved the format. Fantastic band fronted by Jamie Rodden as the man in black. Janie Rodden was simply outstanding !!!! His rendition of ‘Hurt’, performed with tears running down his cheeks, was simply breathtaking !!! Easily five stars from me !! Bravo

This show was packed out. So many Johnny Cash fans here! The most popular songs were played well. ‘Johnny’ sounded like Johnny, with his back story being depicted on a screen behind the band. This show was driven through with the enthusiasm of the audience! One for the fans!

Loved it, and it was over too soon. It's a winning format, and I'm not a huge Johnny Cash fan, but the performance was outstanding. Genuinely moving at times. Wonderful.
