Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story

On the back of an incredibly successful 25th anniversary worldwide tour, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story is back in the UK.

Although there have been many imitations, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story has stood the test of time. The show has inspired a generation of multi-million selling juke-box musicals, including 'Mamma Mia' and 'We Will Rock You', still remains a true original and a musical phenomenon.

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 aged 8 to 80 years old rockin’ in the aisles across the globe!

'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 family entertainment.
