David Stone stars in Man in Black: The Johnny Cash Experience. This remarkable concert is a Broadway-quality show that plays predominantly to a new generation of fans too young to have known the real thing in its zenith. It is NOT a cheap "impersonation."
David Stone's Man in Black: The Johnny Cash Experience takes the audience through the late country legend's career, covering Early Johnny Cash, Johnny Cash & June Carter, and the Folsom Prison Concert Era. Those who see his performance will know what it must have been like to see the real Johnny Cash in concert -- his voice, mannerisms, and his band are wholly true to the legend.
