THOSE of the older generation, especially ones with good memories, will recall that way back in the 1950’s a new phenomenon came blasting through the American airwaves, over the Atlantic and into our own homes here Britain.
This phenomenon was Rock ‘n’ Roll!
The likes of legends such as Bill Haley, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and, of course, the king himself, Elvis, would soon be entertaining millions all over the world with their unique style of music.
Now Rock ‘n’ Roll Heaven, a new touring show, will bring all those memories flooding back when it arrives in Malvern for a five day run from Tuesday, August 26 through to Saturday, August 30.
The show is a collection of rock ‘n’ roll’s all-time greats and will give audiences a chance to experience two unparalleled hours of the golden era’s musical legacy when it rocks into the Festival Theatre.
This extravaganza is guaranteed to send you straight to rock ‘n’ roll heaven! Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley have featured strongly in several musical biographies – but this time they are joined by the legendary Del Shannon, Ricky Nelson, and Eddie Cochran.
A non-stop parade of hits will feature Del Shannon’s legendary recordings of Runaway, Hats Off To Larry, Swiss Maid, So Long Baby, Keep Searchin’ and many more million sellers. Ricky Nelson, the only real contender for Elvis’s throne in America, will be represented by his all-time greats like Poor Little Fool, It’s Late, Fools Rush In, Hello Mary-Lou, Travelling Man and Garden Party. Eddie Cochran’s pure and raunchy rock ‘n’ roll anthems include Three Steps to Heaven, Something Else, Weekend and Come On Everybody.
It promises not to be for the faint-hearted...
