The life of music legend Buddy Holly will be celebrated at Newbury’s Corn Exchange in September.
The touring production Buddy Holly & The Cricketers has dazzled audiences across the globe, from Cardiff to California, and has been getting audiences singing along to the music and dancing in the aisles for more than a quarter of a century.
It stars some of the finest actor-musicians in the UK, whose combined West End credits include Buddy, Lennon, Forbidden Planet and Jailhouse Rock.
Furthermore, the band was endorsed as Britain’s most popular Buddy Holly act when they guested on BBC One’s The One and Only, hosted by Graham Norton.
The show pays homage to the famous American musician and singer-songwriter, who was a central figure to rock and roll during the mid-1950s.
You can expect to hear all of Buddy Holly’s classic hits including Peggy Sue, That’ll Be the Day, Everyday, Not Fade Away and Raining in My Heart.
Both critics and audiences alike have hailed the tribute act with much praise over the years.
The Stage said: “The audience were dancing in the aisles and roaring for more,” and The Kent and Sussex Courier dubbed the act as “Fantastic. The best”.
However, no critic has said it better than the Bangkok Post with “you won’t believe it’s not Buddy”.
The show takes place on September 28 at 7.45pm at The Corn Exchange in Newbury.
Full price tickets cost £20 and there is a group booking discount available.
