The show is a concert experience in which videos of Johnny Cash from episodes of “The Johnny Cash Show” will be displayed on a screen above the stage that will be accompanied by a live band and singers.

“The concert experience will showcase iconic performances from the TV show and highlight the spirit of the legend by revisiting some of his memorable words and anecdotes,” stated the news release.

Throughout the show, audiences will hear some of the man in black’s big hits, including “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” and “I Walk the Line.”

Other onstage performers will be splitting vocal performances of several of Cash’s hits.
