Happy Days Records presents

Buddy: In Concert - 60 Years of Buddy Holly

Sunday 8 November 08:00 PM
Buddy: In Concert - 60 Years of Buddy Holly

Buddy Holly was an innovator. He pioneered and popularised rock 'n' roll as we know it today. Happy Days Records presents Buddy: In Concert, 60 Years of Buddy Holly - a celebration of Rock N Roll history starring Scott "Buddy" Cameron and touring the country this October/November.

Buddy Holly's career began in 1956 and spanned only a few short years, but what came with it continues to make a lasting impact on popular music influencing acts including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Elton John, among others. Inducted in to the hall of fame in 1986, (Co-incidentally the same year Scott was born) the Texan was ranked by Rolling Stone Magazine at number thirteen on its "100 Greatest Artists" list having written some of histories greatest Rock 'N' Roll songs.

Scott "Buddy" Cameron is no stranger to portraying Holly having done so for over a decade to many a rapturous crowd. Scott is one of the most recognised Buddy Holly performers in the world receiving rave reviews for his portrayal of the 50's legend in the International smash hit musical Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story in productions staged from 2005 through to 2009 and, to this day, continues to don the trademark horn-rimmed glasses, the ever so engaging and charismatic figure and a lilting vocal hiccup in many other concert productions. He is recognised by Members of Holly's own family and the "Peggy Sue" as being the closest thing today to the legend of Holly.

Buddy: In Concert, 60 Years of Buddy Holly will see Cameron perform some of Rock N Roll's greatest songs from across the 50's and 60's from artists including Elvis Presley, Bill Haley, among others. Following a short intermission, Scott will get his rave on performing the very best of Buddy Holly's catalogue of hits. Expect to hear the hits "Peggy Sue", "That'll Be The Day", "Oh Boy", "Maybe Baby" and many more.
