Remembering Roy Orbison in Cheltenham
By David Wood
The one and only Barry Steele is set to put the rock back into 'The Big O' as he takes to the stage to celebrate the 85th birthday of this legend in the West End production of 'The Roy Orbison Story'.
The Roy Orbison Story comes to Cheltenham Town Hall this Friday (January 14) at 7.30pm.
In 2017 Roy Orbison songs were remastered by The Philharmonic Orchestra - in The Roy Orbison Story these masterpieces are proudly presented.
In 1963 Roy Orbison performed for the first time, at The Adelphi in Slough - in December 2018 The Roy Orbison Story performed at The Adelphi Theatre in London's West End, and In 1988 Roy Orbison Joined 'The Traveling Wilburys' - in The Roy Orbison Story we create an incredible finale as the whole cast come together to celebrate this original super group.
Barry Steele and a fabulous cast of musicians and singers will take you on the continuing musical journey in The 85th Anniversary Tour from The Black and White Night right through to The Traveling Wilburys and beyond - with so much more in between.
Chris Isaak collected many awards on behalf of The Orbison Family - he also recorded many of Roy Orbison's songs - the compliment is returned with Barry Steele performing stunning versions of Blue Hotel and Wicked Game.
This show promises to have you dancing in the aisles, in an evening packed with Rock and Soul.
