Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story

One of the world’s most successful rock ‘n’ roll musicals, Buddy will have you on your feet and clapping along. In 1959, Buddy Holly, the man who changed the face of popular music died in a plane crash at just 22 years of age. This show tells the story of the three years in which he became the world’s top recording artist and will feature over 20 of his greatest hits. Songs include ‘Peggy Sue’, ‘That’ll Be The Day’, ‘Oh Boy’, ‘Everyday’, ‘Not Fade Away’, ‘Rave On’ and ‘It’s Raining in my Heart’.

Following Holly from his first recording contract through to his move to the Big Apple, New York, and to his final legendary performance at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa, Buddy is two hours of some of the best rock ‘n’ roll songs ever written.
