Six   legends,   six   incredible   stories,   six   unique   talents… one extraordinary coincidence. In   August   1938,   legendary   blues   guitarist,   Robert   Johnson   was   murdered.   A   few years   earlier,   he   had   publically   proclaimed   that   after   a   chance   meeting   with   the Devil   at   at   Mississippi   crossroads,   he   had   sold   his   soul   to   the   Devil   in   return   for guitar   playing   ability   and   worldwide   fame…   At   the   time   of   his   death,   Johnson was    just    27    years    of    age.    From    that    moment    on,    a    string    of    exceptionally influential    and    gifted    musicians    would    all    be    taken    from    the    world    for    too young. July    3rd    1969,    Rolling    Stones’    founder    member    Brian    Jones    drowns    in    the swimming   pool   of   his   East   Sussex   estate…   September   18th   1970,   legendary guitarist,    Jimi    Hendrix,    asphixiates    having    taken    a    dangerous    number    of sleeping   tablets…   October   4th   1970,   Janis   Joplin   overdoses   on   Heroin   in   her Hollywood   hotel   room…   July   3rd   1971,   Jim   Morrison,   lead   singer   of   The   Doors suddently   dies   of   a   supposed   heart   failure…   April   5th   1994,   Nirvana   frontman, Kurt   Cobain   commits   suicide   after   years   of   addiction,   illness   and   depression… July    23rd    2011,    Amy    Winehouse    passes    away,    her    blood    alcohol    content dangerously    high…        All    of    these    premature    departures    were    enveloped    in controversy and mystery. These     six     musical     legends     will     be     forever     united     by     a     strange     set     of circumstances   that   have   immortalised   them   as   the   core   members   of   a   cursed group   of   stars   -   the   so-called   ‘27   Club’   -   the   curse   of   the   27   Club   haunts   the music    industry    to    this    day    Now,    this    electrifying    and    high-energy    new    rock musical   tells   the   incredibly   life   stories   of   these   legendary   performers,   featuring a   soundtrack   that   includes   many   of   the   greatest   rock   anthems   of   the   20th Century   including   Try   (Just   A   Little   Bit   Harder),   Piece   of   My   Heart,   Purple   Haze,   Hey Joe,   All   Along   the   Watchtower,   Light   My   Fire,   People   Are   Strange,   Break   On   Through, Smells    Like    Teen    Spirit,    Valerie,    Rehab,    Sympathy    For    The    Devil,    Paint    It    Black, Satisfaction  and many, many more… Were   they   all   just   unique   but   unstable,   self-destructive   individuals   or   was   there something   far   more   sinister,   even   nefarious,   surrounding   their   popularity   and subsequent   demise?   Did   they   take   their   own   lives   or   did   the   Devil   collect   his due?
