Roy Orbison & Friends with Barry Steele
Saturday 21st April 2012
Barry Steele returns to the PLAYHOUSE as the Big O himself...
Following his untimely death in 1988, the music of Roy Orbison remains as vital as ever. In this fantastic celebration, Barry Steele, who has performed to rave reviews across the world brings the music and character of the Big O back to life. Barry not only sounds like the man, he looks like him too, as he puts the Rock back into Roy Orbison with his trademark dark rimmed glasses and Orbison style.
With a rollicking set including Ooby Dooby, Mean Woman Blues, and Uptown, plus the soaring vocals of Barry Steele as effortlessly performs the Classics, Only the Lonely, Crying, and Blue Angel, right through to Orbison’s later hits California blue, and You Got it, and of course the Traveling Wilburys whose music also features in the show.
With full support from Barry’s fabulous five piece show band who will perform hits from the Shadows, Jerry Lee Lewis, and of course a variety of music from our special Guest Peter Jackson as Johnny Cash and Paul Molloy as Elvis.
This show is the ultimate musical experience!
