I Can't Believe It's Not Buddy!
Buddy Holly & The Crickets are brought back to life as they looked and sounded on their first tour of the UK in 1958 by the outstanding Spencer J & the Copy-Cat Crickets.
Taking you back to the age of the soda shop, the drive through diner and the record hop, this is a non-stop rock 'n' roll concert straight from the fifties with the songs that Buddy recorded such as 'Peggy Sue', 'That'll Be The Day', 'Oh Boy' and 'Heartbeat', but also other rock n roll hits such as 'La Bamba', 'Blue Suede Shoes', 'Rip It Up' and 'Shake Rattle & Roll' which Buddy performed time and again. This isn't just a great night, it's 'Buddy' brilliant!
With full live band.
When Buddy Holly died in a plane crash in 1959 aged just 22 he was already a star. Today he is a legend. His songs are all-time classics, and no one does them better than Spencer J, whose performance delivers in a big way! Wearing stunning 1950's jackets sourced directly from the USA and vintage horn-rimmed specs, Spencer J has perfected the Holly look as well as the sound. Playing the same sunburst Fender Stratocaster guitar that Buddy Holly used to make Rock 'n' Roll history; with Spencer J's act, you really won't get closer to the real thing. This upbeat show features all the legendary hits - Peggy Sue, That'll Be the Day, Oh Boy, Heartbeat, Maybe Baby, Rave On, Not Fade Away… the list goes on. As well as Buddy Holly, the show salutes the Kings of Rock ‘n’ Roll with golden greats such as Blue Suede Shoes, Bye Bye Love, Summertime Blues, Be Bop A Lula, Great Balls of Fire etc. A great time is guaranteed for all!
