Performance 7.30pm - 10.00pm
If you missed them in 2022 don’t despair! They are coming back in March 2024.
Three outstanding West End artists pay tribute to three icons of Rock ‘n’ Roll – Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley – all backed by a four piece band, and all done in true Rock ‘n’ Roll style!
Firstly, Darren Page performs a heartfelt tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison, with songs including ‘I Drove All Night’, ‘Pretty Woman’, and ‘Ooby Dooby’. Darren has now spent many years touring all over Great Britain and there really is nobody better to keep Orbison’s music alive.
Next up is Marc Robinson who, having portrayed Buddy Holly on stage and screen for many years, once again dons the oh-so familiar horn rimmed glasses and joins The Counterfeit Crickets to give you a true taste of Buddy Holly. This authentic set includes such nostalgic hits as ‘Heartbeat’, ‘It Doesn’t Matter Anymore’, ‘Peggy Sue’ and ‘True Love Ways’.
Finally, Steve Halliday from the BBC’s ‘Christmas Elvis Show’ and ‘Better Than The Real Thing’ brings you the ultimate King Of Rock ‘n’ Roll himself, Elvis! What more can you say about Elvis? From ‘That’s All Right Mama’ to ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ and ‘G.I. Blues’, no show about the Rock ‘n’ Roll era would be complete without him. So let Steve, who has traveled the length and breadth of Europe with his breathtaking performance, transport you back to the days when Elvis really was ‘The King’!
This promises to be a night of full nostalgia and Rock n Roll at its finest!
Will Rock n Roll ever Die? That’ll be the Day!
