Buddy Holly and the Cricketers will once again hit the Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre stage this autumn to delight audiences with their Rock ‘N’ Roll show.
The show will feature all of the original Buddy Holly’s big hits including That’ll Be the Day, Peggy Sue, Heartbeat, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore, Raining In My Heart, Oh Boy! plus further Rock ’N’ Roll greats from other chart-topping artists.
Buddy Holly’s music has touched the heart of millions around the world and influenced many famous musicians including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Brian May. Over 60 years after his passing, many younger audiences continue to discover the music of Buddy Holly.
Producer Simon Fielder says: “As a young guitarist I listened to Buddy and he massively influenced my playing and writing. My adult life has been spent performing his music and presenting other actor musicians on stages all over the world who have brought delight to thousands and thousands of people.
“The show has been on the road for 30 years now and even managed some performances during the years of the pandemic. We are absolutely delighted to welcome our audiences back to full houses so they can enjoy a fabulous party with Buddy and the boys. Pandemics and other adverse events may have held us back for a while, but Rock ’N’ Roll will never die.”
- Celebrating the joy Buddy Holly has brought millions of people worldwide, the band are set to have audiences dancing in the aisles at The Riverfront on the 29 September at 7.30pm.
