The phenomenal multi-award-winning musical Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story will be on stage at the Colosseum from Monday, November 25 until Wednesday, November 27.

Seen by more than 22 million people worldwide, Buddy is an unmissable show.

Enjoyed by audiences time and time again, the show chronicles the tragically short life of Buddy Holly and how in the years before his untimely death he managed to change the face of popular music.

Re-counting his last three years as a top recording artist, Buddy features two terrific hours of songs, including That’ll Be The Day, Oh Boy, Rave On, La Bamba, Chantilly Lace, Johnny B. Goode, Raining In My Heart and Everyday.

Experience the drama, passion and excitement as a cast of talented actors and musicians tell Buddy Holly’s story, from his meteoric rise to fame, to his final legendary performance at The Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.

Evening performances are at 8pm and there is a matinee on the Wednesday at 2.30pm.
