The production of the Buddy Holly story coming to Staffordshire next year

The world’s most successful Rock & Roll musical Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is set to visit the Regent Theatre in Stoke-on-Trent from Tuesday February 18 – Saturday February 22, 2020 as part of its 30th anniversary UK wide tour.

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 rock ‘n’ roller revolutionised the face of contemporary music influencing everyone from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen. Audiences will be treated to 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits, including timeless classics That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Oh Boy and Rave On.
