Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story
February 19, 2018
On the back of incredibly successful Tours in 2015 in 2016,
Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story - the show that inspired a
generation of multi-million selling juke-box musicals
including Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia, Million Dollar Quartet,
and We Will Rock You - is back by popular demand!
Seen by over 22 million music fans since it opened in
London's West End in 1989, Buddy speaks an international
language and continues to have audiences from 8 to 80
rockin' in the aisles across the globe.
Loved by critics and audiences alike, Buddy tells the
enduring tale of the musical icon's meteoric rise to fame
and his final legendary performance at the Surf Ballroom in
Clear Lake, Iowa, before his tragic and untimely death at
the age of 22. In 18 short months the Texas-born boy
revolutionized the face of contemporary music influencing
everyone from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen.
Boasting a phenomenally multi-talented cast, together they
present two terrific hours of music with over 20 of his
greatest hits, including the timeless classics That'll Be
The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh Boy and Rave On.
With the Big Bopper's Chantilly Lace and Ritchie Valens' La
Bamba completing a stellar musical line-up, Buddy is a not
to be missed evening of feel good family entertainment
Buddy's widow, Maria Elena Holly, says of the show: "When
we opened the show we never imagined Buddy's music and
story would still be rocking stages and entertaining
audiences around the world week-in week-out over 25 years
later. I believe this is testament to a great show - the
first of its kind - and to the enduring appeal of Buddy
Holly and what he represents; a youthful energy, huge
talent and creativity, combined with a determination to
make a lasting impression in this world."
Writer/Producer Alan Janes says "Audiences dance in the
aisles every night to our enactment of the story of a young
man whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period
but whose music will be remembered forever".
