Flying Saucer to host Million Dollar Quartet 'pop-up' show

Posted 3:57pm on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013

If you've ever wondered why your weekday lunch can't have more pizzazz, well, stop yerself right there. We've got some news that may shake your nerves and rattle your brain.

If you happen to be noshing at the Flying Saucer in downtown Fort Worth on Wednesday at noon, you'll get a side dish of Broadway, when members of Million Dollar Quartet pop in for a mini-show.

The touring musical, which premieres at Bass Hall on Tuesday (March 5), is set on December 4, 1956, when a twist of fate finds Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley in the same recording studio at the exact same time.

Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll," brought the four legendary musicians together at Sun Records, and the resulting evening became known as one of the greatest rock 'n' roll jam sessions in history.

The 20-minute show is free and open to the public. Noon Wednesday, March 6, on the patio of Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, 111 E. Third St., Fort Worth. Million Dollar Quartet is presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth, and will run at Bass Performance Hall March 5-10. For more information, visit www.basshall.com.
