But unlike other tribute shows, this one will begin its tour performing to a very select audience: inmates of a Midlands jail!

Richard Day, show producer and frontman, said: “Johnny Cash was famous for his prison performances, he found them incredibly rewarding and they matched his values and beliefs of forgiveness and redemption.

“We wanted to create an authentic tribute to Johnny Cash and June Carter, so we are starting with the same philosophy.”

“This is no ordinary show,” added Lizzy Rushby (June Carter-Johnny’s wife).

“Unlike other shows, we also recreate the onstage interaction between Johnny and June.

“The spectacle also features projections, and we vary musical styles, from early rockabilly hits, to country, bluegrass, and his comeback American Recordings, including Hurt, which brought Johnny to a new generation of fans.”

Cash and Carter, Together, is staged at Melton Theatre on Thursday, October 4, from 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £16/ £14/ £13. They are available at www.meltontheatre.co.uk or by calling the box office on (01664) 851111.
