Tickets are on sale now. This film closes on Thursday, April 10th.

Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville has made a career of celebrating key figures in American music, his exceptional filmography featuring portraits of George Jones, Brian Wilson, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, among many others. His latest film focuses on performers whose names are less familiar, yet their voices have been heard on some of pop’s greatest hits.

20 Feet from Stardom shines the spotlight on backup artistes, singers with great voices who have stood behind some of rock’s preening frontmen hollering, harmonising and, in some cases, hankering for their own chance to move centre stage. Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder and Mick Jagger are among interviewees here, giving overdue credit to singers they have worked with, though the true stars are the backing vocalists themselves, providing wonderful performances and sharing of their stories, at turns uplifting and tragic, with heart-warming sincerity.
