If you love good music, then this is the show for you as Barry Steele presents 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  Using  both Original and film footage from the era, and backed by his fabulous  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.
