Vintage rock ‘n’ roll fans should break out their blue suede shoes when Buddy Holly – a Legend Reborn comes to The Grove Theatre, Dunstable next Friday.
Marc Robinson, a winner from ITV’s legendary Stars in Their Eyes show, headlines the spectacular live production, bringing to life classic hits such as Peggy Sue, That’ll be the Day and Oh Boy.
Backed by a band who recreate the sounds of the original Crickets thge show is an authentic slice of rock ’n’ roll nostalgia that ensures Buddy’s incredible legacy lives on.
Marc Robinson, clutching a Fender Stratocaster, and sporting a pair of heavy-rimmed glasses, sounds and looks like the 1950s rock star.
This year marks the 55th anniversary of the day that Buddy Holly died in a plane 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.”
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 music.
“Book your seats for the only local date on the show’s nationwide tour,” he says, “that’ll be a very special day, guaranteed!”
