SEEN by more than 20 million people worldwide, multi-award-winning Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is on its way to Rhyl.
The production is back on tour to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Buddy’s death in a plane crash in 1959, aged 22.
You can catch Buddy at the Pavilion Theatre between Monday September 29, and Saturday, October 4.
The show is in its 19th year, with more than a dozen major nominations and awards behind it, including two Oliviers and a Tony.
Buddy tells the story of the three years in which he became the world’s top recording artist with a show that features more than 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits, including Peggy Sue, That’ll Be The Day, Oh Boy, Rave On, Heartbeat and Raining In My Heart, as well as classics such as La Bamba, Chantilly Lace and Why Do Fools Fall in Love?.
The show follows the tragically short life of the star, from his first recording contract to his move to New York, concluding with his fatal tour of Midwest America with Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper.
