Johnny Cash tribute artist endorsed by country singer’s family coming to Bromley

PUBLISHED: 11:59 29 May 2014

The songs of Johnny Cash were introduced to musician Clive John 10 years ago by his roadie.

Chris Allan, also a dear friend to John, tragically lost his life to brain cancer aged 28, not long afterwards.

But John grew to love the country singer’s sound and soon he forged a career as a Johnny Cash tribute artist.

“Before Chris died he spent three years travelling with me on the road to almost every gig and was my right hand man and roadie and soul mate,” said John. 
“Shortly before he became sick he gave me a double album of Johnny Cash’s greatest hits.

“I instantly loved the sound and Chris knew I would cover his songs with respect and do it well.”

The Johnny Cash Roadshow is set to come to Bromley’s Churchill Theatre, in Bromley High Street, on June 25.

Despite the fears of his family and friends, John has had huge success as a Johnny Cash tribute artist.

“It is the only show that is endorsed by the Cash family and to my knowledge it is the best theatre production in the world,” added John, 39, from Malvern in Worcestershire. “It is a really fun night.”

Tickets for the show cost between £21.90 and £22.90. To book call 08448 717 620.
