BACK IN TOWN
Jake and Elwood Blues are back in town to put on the greatest rock'n'roll
show ever seen. However Sheriff McGraw hasn't forgotten the chaos created
the last time these two boys passed through town. To prevent the Blues
Brothers from getting to the stage on time, the Sheriff has sabotaged all
routes of access. Jake and Elwood have to find their own way to the stage.
Despite the Sheriff's efforts, Jake and Elwood are pretty sure they
remember the way, or at least the general direction. To avoid being
detected, they pass quickly through the shopping mall and then sneak into
the back of a warehouse. Unfortunately, Jake and Elwood make a wrong turn
and wind up in prison. However, through their clever maneuvering, they
manage to escape. The Blues Brothers continue on, sneaking through the
sewers and finally reaching the concert hall by passing through an
abandoned building site.
Jake gave a little smile "Watch out!" he shouted. "The Blues Brothers are
back and you'd better be ready".
