If you’re looking for a fun and entertaining night on the town head to Legends in Concert Myrtle Beach. The all-star show features a new line-up of tribute artists each season, performing tributes to today and yesterday’s greatest musical acts. Plus, the show is held in a state-of-the-art yet intimate theater creating a club type atmosphere on the Grand Strand.
During my visit to Legends in Concert in Myrtle Beach Tina Turner, Johnny Cash, Rod Stewart, Adele and Elvis performed. Tina Turner (Lori Mitchell-Gay) took the stage first and shimmied her way through sizzling hits like “What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Simply The Best,” “Good to Me” and “Proud Mary.” Gay embodied Tina’s signature style and dance moves and hit all of the high notes.
Johnny Cash (Paul Eve) took the stage next and launched right into “Folsom Prison Blues.” His voice really carried during selections like “Get Rhythm,” “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” and “I’ve Been Everywhere.” Capturing the essence of The Man in Black in every song, the highlight of his set for me was certainly “Ring of Fire,” which also showcased the talented Legends in Concert dancers.
By this point in the show the audience was feeling lively, which made the next performer – Rod Stewart (Rob Caudill) – even more of a hit. His vocals were spot on and his performances of “Forever Young,” and “Have I Told You Lately” were powerful. The sex appeal was amped up during renditions of “Hot Legs” and “Do You Think I’m Sexy” got the audience on their feet, but the soulful “Maggie May” was my favorite Stewart song performance. The surprise of the night was Adele (J.C. Brando). Her soaring vocals shined on Adele songs like “Skyfall,” “Rolling in the Deep,” “Set Fire to the Rain” and “Rumor Has It.” Brando has Adele’s mannerisms and inflections down to an art. Even her talking voice sounds convincingly like the famous singer’s. “Some Like You,” the last song of her set, stole the show for me. It was a moving rendition of a soulful song and she sold every single note.A night at Legends in Concert Myrtle Beach SC wouldn’t be complete with Elvis (Jay Dupuis) closing the show. The king took the stage for an energetic and entertaining tribute. “Burnin’ Love,” “Suspicious Minds” and “Can’t Stop Loving You” were some of the standout performances. The entire set was hand-clapping, on-your-feet fun, with Dupuis really playing up all of Elvis’ moves. A patriotic medley ends the set with vocals shining on “America the Beautiful” and “Glory, Glory Hallelujah.” Legends in Concert ends the show with a song and dance medley featuring all of the performers. Its worth noting Legends is one of the only shows in Myrtle Beach that serves alcohol. This made for a spirited atmosphere where the entire audience seemed to be enjoying themselves.
