THERE is a wonderful line-up of one-nighters at the Victoria Hall this month.

The Johnny Cash Roadshow, which will be at the Hanley venue on Thursday, October 10, is a show not to be missed by avid fans or the casual listener. Prepare for a musical adventure unrivalled by any other that truly celebrates the career of a music legend, Johnny Cash.

The UK’s No1 Tribute, fronted by respected singer/songwriter Clive John, with The Spirit Band, re-create with astounding accuracy and truly capture the essence of what it was like to be at a real Cash show. Featuring Jill Schoonjans as June Carter and two more talented ladies as the Carter Sisters, all aspects of Cash’s life are covered with impeccable taste.

On Thursday, October 17 Buddy Holly And The Cricketers will be at the Victoria Hall.

This breathtaking show has rock ’n’ rolled audiences across the globe from Cardiff to California, Barking to Bangkok and Swindon to Sweden and is guaranteed to have everyone singing along to the music and dancing in the aisles. It stars some of the finest actor-musicians in the UK whose combined West End credits include Buddy, Lennon, Forbidden Planet and Jailhouse Rock and was endorsed as Britain’s most popular Buddy Holly act when the boys guested on BBC One's Saturday night live programme, The One and Only, hosted by Graham Norton.

Reduced Shakespeare Company – The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (abridged) will be at the same theatre on Sunday, October 20 at 7.30pm.

Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield; and directed by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor all 37 plays are portrayed in 97 Minutes.

An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longestrunning comedy having clocked up nine years in London's West End at the Criterion Theatre.

Now revised for 2013, join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

On Saturday, October 26 at 7.30pm there will be the American Superslam Wrestling.

It's back with an explosive evening of top line action for all the family to enjoy. A brand new line up will make one of Britain's longest established wrestling arenas, even better than before. So whether you have or have not seen this before, it will be fun for all of the family.

Bandwagon Productions and Warren Grant present Hats off to Led Zeppelin - The Official UK No. 1 Tribute to the greatest rock band ever on Wednesday, October 30.

You’ll feel like you’ve travelled back in time when you experience these four top class musicians recreating Led Zeppelin’s magical concerts.

Featuring Peter Eldridge from the West End production of We Will Rock You; Jack Tanner and Kevin Oliver Jones from the world tours of Thriller Live and Dancing in the Streets; and Simon Wicker as Bonzo incarnate, this is a truly sensational live show.

Tickets for all of the above shows can be purchased at the Box Office, by calling 0844 871 7649 or by visiting www.atgtickets.com/stoke
