This smash-hit show saw its world premier in Melbourne in 2013 and since then has packed theatres throughout Australia and New Zealand. In 2016 the show returned to Melbourne for a sell-out season at The Arts Centre and July saw the show triumph for a third season at The Sydney Opera House.

In the spring of 2017 At Last – The Etta James Story toured the UK, selling out theatres in London, Liverpool, Manchester and across the country, receiving 5 star reviews and multiple standing ovations wherever it played. Starring the sensational Vika Bull At Last tells the story of soul legend Etta James turbulent life and features some of her most beloved songs including Tell Mama, Something’s Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, the heart rending I’d Rather Go Blind, her iconic signature song At Last and more. Vika puts her heart and soul into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by some of Australia’s finest and funkiest musicians.

During a long and tumultuous career that saw her win six Grammy Awards and a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Etta James has influenced a vast array of artists from Diana Ross, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart and is acknowledged as inspiring the careers of a new generation of singers from Christina Aguilera, Joss Stone, Adele and the late Amy Winehouse.

Sadly, Etta’s frantic recording and touring schedule coincided with her ever-growing addiction problems and over time she not only sang the blues…she lived the blues. Mercifully, her passion for life and strength of character saw her conquer her demons and she continued to record and perform into her seventies.

With respect, this is her story.

"It is possible to believe when you leave the theatre that you have never heard a better version of I’d Rather Be Blind, that songs of heartbreak and female dominant Blues such as Tell Mama, Something’s Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, Roll With Me Henry and the ironic Out On The Street Again have never been heard in quite the same way before, it is a testament to Ms. Vika Bull that the music that was always so beautiful is, in Ms Bull’s hands to be seen as exceptional." Liverpool Sound and Vision

"A fantastic night of storytelling, classic soul and jazz songs and brilliant musicianship."  North West End
