‘The Man in Black’ comes to town
MORE than 20 years after his death, the voice of Roy Orbison will be ringing out again as Stevenage hosts a tribute show to the late great.
Held at the Gordon Craig Theatre, Damien Edwards, who played Roy in Bill Kenwright’s The Official Roy Orbison Story between 2000 and 2004, will belt out ‘The Big O’s’ best loved hits.
Elvis Presley was among the artist’s admirers, and once claimed Orbison was “the greatest singer in the world.”
With support from Tim Harwood from the West End as ‘Buddy Holly’ and the internationally acclaimed Everlys Experience portraying the Everly Brothers, expect over two hours of non-stop hits including ‘Only The Lonely’, ‘Wake Up Little Suzie’, ‘Peggy Sue’ ‘Pretty Woman’ ‘Cathy’s Clown or ‘Rave On’.
‘The Voice of Roy Orbison’ comes to the Gordon Craig Theatre at 7:45pm on Sunday, September 12.
Tickets are available from the box office on 01438 363200.
