Roy Orbison and Friends with Barry Steele


  • Date: Saturday 21st September 2013
  • Time: 7.30pm

If you love good music, then this is the show for you as Barry Steele returns to the PLAYHOUSE with his all live spectacular Multi Media Tribute to The Big O, featuring classic Orbison hits from the 60’s right through to the late 80’s when Roy joined a band of men, who called themselves The Traveling Wilbury’s.

Using original film footage from the era and backed by his fabulous 5 piece band, Barry Steele will bring the life and character of Roy Orbison back to the centre stage, where it truly belongs, as he puts the rock back into The Big O, with his trademark dark rimmed glasses, soaring vocals and Orbison style.

Add to the mix the sounds of The Shadows, Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis and our special star guest tributes to Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, you have yourself a spectacular fusion of good old “Rock n Roll” and contemporary musical genius all on one stage.
