The golden age of rock and roll
Feeling nostalgic for the golden age of rock and roll? Take a journey back in time with combined tributes to Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and The Big O
Rock ‘n’ Roll Paradise is a jam-packed show at the Thwaites Empire Theatre, Blackburn, where the audience will travel back to the nostalgic days of the 50’s and 60’s, to remember some remarkable musicians.
An incredible cast – featuring Tim Worrall (Jerry Lee Lewis), John-Simon Rawlings (The Big Bopper), Lars Young (Roy Orbison), Gavin Stanley (Eddie Cochran) and Spencer Jordan filling the famous glasses of Buddy Holly – come together to commemorate the 55th Anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Big Bopper and Richie Valens on February 3, 1959.
The second half of the show opens with a concert within a concert as the audience is taken through thehighlights of Elvis’ later tours. An act complete with Vegas jump-suits, belts and rings by Richard Atkins, right.
Finally, to close the show, we go back to the original guitar heroes as Buddy, Eddie and The Big O once again take to the stage with Big Bopper, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis building to fever pitch, leaving the audience demanding more.
Rock n Roll Paradise is on Friday February 14, 7.30pm. Tickets £18.50.
