Rolling Thunder Vietnam

The sensational Australian concert drama Rolling Thunder Vietnam – Songs That Defined A Generation returns to Brisbane and the Gold Coast in March.

The powerful production, comprising brilliant songs, stunning video footage and an emotive story, has become one of the most talked about musical and theatrical events since its world premiere in 2014. It is a vibrant and stirring show with humanity and heart.

The Director of the Australian War Memorial, Dr Brendan Nelson, is Patron of the Rolling Thunder Vietnam tour in 2020. 

“The show brings to life stories of courage, endurance, sacrifice and love in the context of the Vietnam War,” Dr Nelson said. “The soundtrack of the show is the pulse of this generation; music that is magnificent and uplifting… Rolling Thunder Vietnam should be seen not just by the men and women who were young in the ‘60s and ‘70s but by their children and grand-children. To see this show is to understand us, who we are now, and one of the most significant events that changed and shaped us.”

Under the musical direction of Chong Lim, Rolling Thunder Vietnam earned plaudits from audiences and critics alike. In an era of political uncertainty and terrorist attacks, the show about social unrest, uncertainty, loss and the value of connection, is as resonant and timely as ever.

Rolling Thunder Vietnam showcases an outstanding cast, including TOBY FRANCIS (Once, Kinky Boots) TOM OLIVER (Velvet), ANNIE AITKEN (Thoroughly Modern Millie) and MATT PEARCE (Rent, Calamity Jane).
