AEG Live would like to invite you to witness the first ever tour of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County – a musical ghost story written by Stephen King, with music and lyrics by John Mellencamp, and musical direction by T-Bone Burnett
Ghost Brothers of Darkland County
Wed, Oct 16th at 7:30pm
This extraordinary collaboration, 13 years in the making, is a haunting tale of fraternal love, lust, jealousy and revenge, performed by an ensemble cast of 15 actors and a four-piece live band, comprised of members of John Mellencamp’s band. The staging of Ghost Brothers is an amalgam of different styles – both old fashioned, resembling an old-style radio show, and yet, modern and unique in its interactive use of storytelling, music and singing to move the macabre Ghost Brothers story forward.
Please RSVP to: Victoria Fortune firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to sharing this experience with you and hope to hear your feedback!
