This show stars Adelaide’s leading floor-show artist, Greg Hart, in the starring role of Johnny O’Keefe.

Australia’s King of rock ‘n’ roll is brought to life through the energy, magnetism and amazing rock voice of Greg Hart. The adrenaline-charged show honours the legend of Johnny O’Keefe. Greg’s close affinity with the pioneering rock icon came following his performance as the man himself in the musical SHOUT. Greg’s uncanny resemblance to Johnny O’Keefe, and the sensational catalogue of songs, inspired him to assemble an 8-piece band (including a horn section) to really bring the music to life. You owe it to yourself to see this show!
