Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story can be seen at Buxton Opera House from September 9-14.
It is touring the UK after more dates were added due to popular demand.
Seen by over 22 million music fans since it opened in London’s West End in 1989, Buddy speaks an international language and continues to have audiences from 8–80 rockin’ in the aisles across the globe.
Loved by critics and audiences alike, Buddy 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 revolutionized the face of contemporary music, influencing everyone from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen.
Boasting a phenomenally multi-talented cast, 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’s La Bamba completing a stellar musical line-up, Buddy is a not to be missed evening of family entertainment.
