Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story

Experience the sensational musical about the bespectacled, 1950s rock ‘n’ roll icon. This non-stop entertaining rock show recounts Buddy Holly’s 18-month meteoric rise to fame and the indelible impact he left on the industry after his untimely death at the age of 22. Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including “Peggy Sue,” “That’ll Be The Day,” “Oh Boy,” “Maybe Baby,” “Raining in My Heart,” as well as Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” and the Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace”. The incredible legacy of the young man whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock ‘n’ roll continues to live on in Buddy.
