Show celebrates five giants of rock 'n' roll

Where: The Roses, Tewkesbury

When: Saturday, February 9, 7.30pm

There's still a chance to grab a ticket to a show celebrating five giants of rock 'n' roll at the Roses in Tewkesbury tomorrow (Saturday) evening.

Be Bop A Lula, the West End smash hit, comes to town showcasing Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Billy Fury, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.

In 1960 American rockers Eddie and Gene flew in from the States and were joined by British heartthrob Billy Fury for the UK's very first multi-artist rock 'n' roll tour. Reviewers were appalled by the on-stage antics. Audiences screamed their approval. British youth culture was born.

Relive these seminal concerts in the company of incredible singers and a band tighter than a pair of your tightest drainpipe trousers.
