COMING to Redditch's Palace Theatre on Friday , September 12 is a tribute show that features two of the most loved rock ‘n’ roll artists – Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley – together they are performing some of the greatest hits as The Buddy Presley Band.
In 1959 Buddy Holly found an inexperienced pilot to fly him into a deadly blizzard. He never touched down. When Elvis Presley left the army he fulfilled his 30 film movie contract with Paramount which kept him out of live stage performance for another eight years.
Two of the greatest performers of all time never graced the local, municipal stages in the early 60s. A tragedy and a business deal deprived their fans of the intimate, raw performances, they so dearly craved. Until now.
If Buddy had not got on that plane and Elvis had walked away from that contract, things would have been very different. For the first time, hear the music of Buddy and Elvis the way it might have been.
Top musicians are joined by The Harmonaires, session backing vocalists with a love and feeling for the music. Add the amazing performance of Dave B, an aficionado and fan of these two musical greats and you have the ultimate musical tribute.
