Dracula's: The Resurrection Tour has returned to the city where it all began. Live on stage at The Palms at Crown Melbourne, 8 Whiteman St, Southbank, the Resurrection is only here from 20-30 May 2021. If you're after a great night of entertainment, get your tickets here. Crown Melbourne is the perfect venue as it adds an aura of excitement entering such an opulent space filled with other entertainment, a plethora of eateries and bars overlooking the night lights of the city, as ginormous torches burst into flames outside.
The Palms is spacious as is the stage, and that gave the show a lot of breathing room to move. The cast made good use of the space on stage as an advantage to entertain the audience from all vantage points. The room seemed at capacity on opening night, filled with a perfect rich palette of blood-red colours and purples to set the mood. If you don't know the story before the Resurrection Tour, Dracula's was born in a dark Melbourne laneway in 1980 and embraced a cult following. However, in 2017 Melbourne's famous theatre restaurant Dracula's closed down their Carlton venue after 38 years. Now, for the first time, comes the show featuring original cast members, amazing Australian talent, aerial feats that are bound to make your jaw drop and costumes that'll catch your attention.
Performed in two parts with intermission time separating the two, so you can replenish your sustenance, this is one punchy gig filled with enough variety to make it a blockbuster - or is that blood-buster! Whichever it may be, it'll have your blood pumping with live rock music from an impressive setlist from the likes of Queen, Rolling Stones, INXS, Led Zeppelin and more. What I thought at first might have been mimed, turned out to be noteworthy powerful live vocals from the two leading men and woman and amazing solo guitar performances from Yano Newman, that was both polished, professional, and impressive. It was inspired and definitely out of the crypt!
The Resurrection Tour doesn't just rise from the depths to mesmerise you with a rock show, scantily dressed beauties with talent, sultry burlesque, creative and impressive sets and costumes but ensnares you with razor-edge comedy, that'll have you laughing and giggling in your seats all night and aerialists that'll have your heart in your mouth! Watch out, coz that's exactly what they want! The entertainment just doesn't let up. Aerialists Duo Synergy (Emma Goh & Scott Reynolds) will have you gasping and were definitely a crowd favourite.
Dress to impress and enjoy options like a VIP Package, where you'll get A Reserve seating, sparkling wine on arrival and a souvenir Dracula's VIP necklace. Limited VIP tickets are available for each performance. Pre-show dinner add-ons are also available for select restaurants within Crown.
