Jukebox musical Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a UK tour, with shows in Kent.
The show, which opened in London’s West End in 1989, tells the story of the musical legend’s rise to fame before his death at the age of 22.
It features more than 20 of his greatest hits, including the timeless classics That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh Boy and Rave On.
Buddy’s widow, Maria Elena Holly, said: “When we opened the show we never imagined Buddy’s music and story would still be rocking stages and entertaining audiences around the world week-in week-out 25 years later.
"I believe this is testament to a great show and to the enduring appeal of Buddy Holly and what he represents – a youthful energy, huge talent and creativity, combined with a determination to make a lasting impression in this world.”
It will be at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre from Tuesday, January 28 to Saturday, February 1. Tickets from £10. Call 0844 871 7620.
The show returns to Dartford’s Orchard Theatre from Monday, July 21 to Saturday, July 26. Call 01322 220000.
