Sunglasses and a black suit

ALL THE hits and more are promised when Barry Steele presents a tribute to the late, great Roy Orbison at Worcester’s Swan Theatre on April 6.

He’s the man with the sunglasses and the black suit who delivered some of the world’s darkest and most emotional ballads, yet Texas-born Roy Orbison remains one of the most distinctive looking and sounding performers in modern music.

The one and only Barry Steele takes on the role in The Roy Orbison Story. He comes with great credentials and a genuine admiration for the Big O and now will take to the stage to commemorate this legend in The Roy Orbison Story.

Barry Steele and Friends takes audiences on a musical journey from the early Sun years right through to the late 1980s, when Orbison was experiencing a huge resurgence in popularity and worked with Bono, Bruce Springsteen and others including super group the Traveling Wilburys alongside former Beatle George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.

Barry Steele has been stunning audiences with his uncanny ability to recreate the vocal talents of the legendary Roy Orbison, winning rave reviews across the globe. His vocal talents are quite simply ‘True Identikit Brilliance.’

The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £22.50.
