It’s the only show to be endorsed by the Cash family and described as the finest tribute to a true legend - the Johnny Cash Roadshow which stops at the White Rock in Hastings on August 30.

The Johnny Cash Roadshow will perform material from throughout Cash’s career including ‘Walk the Line’ and ‘Folsom Prison Blues’, recorded with Sun Records in the 1950’s to ‘Hurt’, Johnny Cash’s last release in 2002, recorded by Rick Rubin for his American Recordings label.
The show includes all the favourites, ‘Man in Black’, ‘Boy named Sue’, ‘The Ring of Fire,’. and the duets Johnny and June sang, including ‘Jackson’.
From start to finish the band take the audience through the Johnny Cash live show experience.
