Recreating the incredible 1970 Joe Cocker Mad Dogs & Englishmen concert, in its entirety, for two huge encore performances at The Gov - after the sellout success of Mad Dogs - The Full Cocker in 2017. The same big ensemble will be squeezing on stage once more. Thrill to the spectacle of a red hot 18-piece superband in all its wild splendour, with two drummers, two keyboards, horns, a nine-voice choir and big-voiced Adelaide blues stalwart Steve Brown singing Joe Cocker's finest anthems -- The Letter, Cry Me A River, Space Captain, Delta Lady, With A Little Help From My Friends and more.

Presented by:
David and Miles Sly

The desire has long burned within dynamic father-and-son drumming team David and Miles Sly to recreate Cocker’s legendary 1970 Mad Dogs & Englishmen live album – and now they recreate their winning 2016 Fringe sellout show for two more encore performances. They found the perfect ally for this project in Adelaide blues stalwart Steve Brown, whose voice authentically revives Cocker's finest performances. Many of Adelaide's finest musicians across generations have also been assembled in the huge band, complete with a sensational nine-voice soul choir. Yes, the Slys get by with a lot of help from their musical friends, and everybody's feelin' alright.
