The Buddy Holly Story Comes to Manchester Palace Theatre
Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story
Tuesday 30 May – Saturday 3 June 2017
Palace Theatre, Manchester
Due to phenomenal demand for tickets Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story has extended its tour including dates in Manchester later this month.
The incredibly successful Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story, visits the Palace Theatre, Manchester, from Tuesday 30 May to Saturday 3 June 2017. Tickets are on sale now.
Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story 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 revolutionised the face of contemporary music influencing everyone from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen.
The production boasts a phenomenally multi-talented cast comprising of Glen Joseph and Alex Fobbester (who alternate the role of Buddy Holly), Miguel Angel, Joe Butcher, Celia Cruwys-Finnigan, Jordan Cunningham, Josh Haberfield, Kerry Low, Thomas Mitchells, Matthew Quinn, Tom Sowinski and Alex Tosh. 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.
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.
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 and Producer Alan Janes added: “Audiences aged eight to 80 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.”
The reviews are in, here’s what the critics say:
“The audience go absolutely crazy. It’s the show you’ll never forget” – Daily Mail
“Joyous” – Sunday Express
