Television personality Shane Cortese is set to have audiences jumping in their seats to the “stonking” sounds of his rock ‘n roll show.

The ‘50s Jukebox Tour, featuring Shane, Chet O’Connell and a rockin’ six-piece Class of ’58 band, will begin in Whangarei and travel through to the South Island.

The suave actor and his band stage a tight, fast-moving, upbeat, bright show that revives the magic of Buddy Holly, Del Shannon, Eddie Cochrane, Roy Orbison, Ricky Nelson, Gene Vincent and more.

Songs also include a huge version of Roll Over Beethoven, featuring numerous Beethoven symphonies, and a 20-minute tribute to the king of rock n’ roll Elvis that has left audiences crying.

Shane and his big band will tell Elvis's story through music, tracking his life from Sun Recording Studios through the movie years, the ‘68 comeback special and Vegas before his untimely death in 1977.

Lead singer Shane Cortese became a household name for his portrayal of the evil Dominic Thompson on Shortland Street and later a finalist on Dancing with the Stars. What many people have discovered in the past few years is Shane has an outstanding pedigree in live rock ‘n’ roll music.

Shane has made a name for himself in London’s West End playing Elvis in Elvis the Musical, Ricky Nelson in Rock ‘n’ Roll Heaven, Ritchie Valens in Buddy, Pharoah in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Rocky in The New Rocky Horror Show.

Tickets available from the Marlborough Centre, phone (03) 578 2009.
