Celebrating the legendary Buddy

Aaron Wise 3rd Jan, 2018   0

BUDDY Holly – a Legend Reborn is coming to Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall to celebrate more than 80 years since the birth of the true rock’n’roll legend.

Marc Robinson, a winner from ITV’s legendary Stars in Their Eyes show, will headline the spectacular live production on Friday, January 19, 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 is an authentic slice of rock ‘n’ roll nostalgia that ensures Buddy’s incredible legacy of unforgettable hit songs lives on.

The show features Marc Robinson clutching a Fender Stratocaster, sporting a pair of heavy-rimmed glasses and sounding exactly like Buddy in his heyday.

Boasting a repertoire of more than 30 of Buddy’s greatest hits, the show includes some hidden gems and takes music fans back to the legendary performer’s big break.

After graduating from high school, Buddy pursued a full-time career in music, opening for Elvis Presley twice at the Fair Park Coliseum and also at the Cotton Club.

Overall, the production is a theatrical treat, whether you’re fanatical about Buddy Holly or simply want to enjoy a night of hit-packed music performed by superbly-talented musicians.

The event starts at 8pm and tickets cost £20.
