Weymouth Pavilion Theatre, The Esplanade
The West End smash hit comes to town featuring the music of five giants of rock’n’roll – Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and Gerry Lee Lewis…
In 1960 American rockers Eddie and Gene flew in from the States as part of the UK’s very first multi-artist rock’n’roll tour.
Reviewers were appalled by the on stage antics. Audiences screamed their approval. British youth culture was born.
Relive these seminal concerts in the company of incredible singers and a band tighter than a pair of your tightest drainpipe trousers.
And there’s more – Orbison and Holly’s live tours were equally responsible for introducing rock’n’roll to the UK and Jerry Lee was then the original bad boy of rock’n’roll. The five are seen combined on stage for the first time ever.
From Cochran’s legendary guitar riffs, Vincent’s menacingly moody stage presence, Lewis’ wild stage antics, Orbison’s perfect, lilting tones and Holly’s good-time rock’n’roll anthems, Be Bop a Lula is a real doozer of a stage show.
