ROCK 'n' Roll star Buddy Holly will be the theme of a show at Pershore's Number 8 venue.

A spokesman said: "Through 1957 to 1959 one man changed the face of music, revolutionising the meaning of Rock ‘N’ Roll – Buddy Holly.

"This all new production for 2017, celebrates the brilliance of an artist who shot straight into the limelight as soon as That’ll Be The Day hit the radio. Though his career was short, this one-man powerhouse gave the world a stack of hits that will never be forgotten."

The spokesman added: "Join Buddy Holly - A Legend Reborn to relive the Rockin’ 50s music scene with hits such as Peggy Sue, Oh Boy, Heartbeat, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore, Words of Love, It’s So Easy, Rave On and many more."

The show will celebrate what would have been the great man's 80th birthday, and the date for the diary is March 4, from 7.30pm.
