More Dates Added For John/Rice Classic

Written by Chief Editor.

What's been described as Detroit's most eagerly awaited return will take place next year: The Lion King, with songs by Elton and Tim Rice, will play the Detroit Opera House for a limited engagement.

It begins on the 27th of January, and runs through the 20th of February. When the show played a four-week engagement at the same venue in 2017, it was sold out.
Tickets go on sale today. Options include Premium Ticket Packages, offering a prime seat location, souvenir programme and exclusive cinch bag.
