Buddy Holly – a Legend Reborn is coming to town starring Marc Robinson, a winner from ITV’s legendary Stars in Their Eyes show, bringing to life classic hits such as Peggy Sue, That’ll be the Day and Oh Boy.
Backed by a band reminiscent of the Crickets in their Fifties heyday, Buddy Holly – A Legend Reborn on 9 November is an authentic slice of rock ’n’ roll nostalgia that ensures Buddy’s incredible legacy of unforgettable hit songs lives on.
This year marks the 55th anniversary of the day that Buddy Holly was lost to the world in an airplane crash along with Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. Buddy Holly – a Legend Reborn takes an all-new show on the road commemorating the “the day the music died”.
Boasting a repertoire of more than 30 of Buddy’s greatest hits, the show includes some hidden gems especially for the 55th anniversary tour.
“Altogether Buddy recorded 109 songs,” says Marc. “Obviously, the best-known songs like Heartbeat, Peggy Sue, Oh Boy and That’ll Be The Day enjoy a warm reception, but we’ve been surprised by the depth of knowledge of our audiences.”
Indeed, Marc says that the cast was spurred to learn the song Valley of Tears following repeated requests for its inclusion when the show first hit the road.
Show producer Michael Taylor says the show is a theatrical treat whether you are fanatical about Buddy Holly or simply want to enjoy a night of hit-packed music performed by superbly-talented musicians. “Book your seats for the only local date on the show’s nationwide tour,” he says, “that’ll be a very special day, guaranteed!”
