Stepping outside of what some may call our comfort zone once again with this little plug, but your editor here is a huge fan of the old rock ‘n’ roll music (after all, it’s what Motorhead play). The show we have details of is part of an 80th birthday tour – Holly would have reached that age this year but for tragic incidents in 1959.
The show I have details of is at the Forum in Northallerton, nearer my old haunts than where I’m currently based. Four West End Artists pay tribute to Buddy Holly, Big Bopper, Ritchie Valens and Dion Di Mucci – all of whom played at that fateful ball on February 2nd 1959 – along with the four piece Band the Counterfeit Crickets in a recreation of the last tour given in the Surf Ballroom in Iowa, U.S.A The Winter Dance Party Tour. All the classic hits will have you up and out of your seats for a two hour uplifting show , from Heartbeat , Blue Days Black Nights , Bo Diddley and True Love Ways – Chantilly Lace, La Bamba, Run Around Sue, you will not be disappointed , pure Rock ‘N’ Roll at its best!
Marc Robinson, who takes on the role of Holly, has played the lead in the popular stage show Buddy: The Musical, so he knows what he’s doing!
