The show at the Embassy Centre stars the giants of rock ’n’ roll – Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Billy Fury, and Buddy Holly.

In 1960 American rockers Eddie and Gene flew in from the States and were joined by British heartthrob Billy Fury for the UK’s very first multi-artist rock ’n’ roll tour.

Show producer Pete Tobit said: "Reviewers were appalled by the on stage antics.

"Audiences screamed their approval. British youth culture was born!”

Theatregoers are invited to relive these seminal concerts in the company of incredible singers and a band said to be “tighter than a pair of your tightest drainpipe trousers”.

“And there’s more,” promises Pete. “Buddy Holly’s live tours were equally responsible for introducing rock’n’roll to the UK.”

Cochran’s legendary guitar riffs, Vincent’s menacingly moody stage presence, Fury’s smouldering looks and soaring vocals, and Holly’s good-time rock’n’roll are promised.

“Be Bop a Lula is a real doozer of a stage show,” says Pete.

Tickets are available from the Embassy Theatre box office.
