To celebrate the joy Buddy has brought millions of people worldwide, the band will play a brilliant and vibrant show appearing at the Garrick Theatre in Lichfield on Saturday 30 July at 7.30pm and tickets start at £28.00.


If you like Rock and Roll you’ll definitely love this. Songs include play all Buddy’s big hits - That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Heartbeat, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore, Raining In My Heart, Oh Boy! - plus some super summer stunners from other chart-topping artists. 

Producer Simon Fielder of Simon Fielder Productions, a former actor in the original touring and West End show said: “It’s been an incredibly difficult couple of years for us all. So many plans put on hold or dashed completely. We had hoped to tour more extensively last year, but audience and venue uncertainty made this impossible. So, we are absolutely delighted to finally get back on the road and on stage and allow people to put life’s problems out of their heads for a couple of hours and enjoy a fabulous party with Buddy and the boys. Pandemics and other adverse events may have held us back for a while, but Rock ’n’ Roll will never die. 

Buddy Holly said: “Hello Lichfield! It’s been a crazy old couple of years, hasn’t it? But it’s finally come time for me and the Cricketers to hit the stage again and we can’t wait to see you dancing in the theatre aisles at the Garrick Theatre, hoppin’ and boppin’, and having a party with us!  I’d personally like to invite each and every one of you to come see us - it’s time to dust off those dancing shoes. See you there!” 

Buddy’s music has touched the heart of millions around the world and influenced many famous artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Brian May and many others. It’s also incredible how many younger people are now into his music. His music transcends time and audiences are a great mix of ages. 

It seems that Buddy’s music - and Rock and Roll - really will never die.
This show has been delighting audiences for three decades and has performed in many locations around the world including Europe and a tour of the US. It stars some of the finest actor-musicians in the UK including Jason Shaw as Buddy and was endorsed as Britain’s most popular Buddy Holly act when the show appeared on BBC One's The One and Only, with Graham Norton notably commenting that they were “Buddy Brilliant”.
The show has always presented Buddy in the style of show we feel he would perform today. Authentic arrangements, driving rhythms, energetic performances and wonderful musicianship, all delivered with charm and humour.
Whatever the season, whatever the excuse to party, make your Heartbeat a little faster with the show that has thousands of fans the world over saying:  “I can’t believe it’s not Buddy!” We guarantee you won’t have a better night out this summer!
