Buddy tells the true story of this icon's meteoric rise to fame, from the moment when "That'll Be The Day" hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on "The Day The Music Died." The show features classic songs "Peggy Sue," "That'll Be The Day," "Not Fade Away," "Oh Boy," Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba," The Big Bopper's "Chantilly Lace" and many more! The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all too brief period during the golden days of Rock & Roll, continues to live on in this show.
Now in its 25th amazing year, Buddy continues to thrill audiences on tour in the U.K. and around the world. Viewed by more than 20 million people in over 20,000 performances worldwide, Buddy opened in London's West End in 1989, and has been seen on Broadway, throughout Canada, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Scandinavia, South Africa, the Netherlands and Singapore; winning numerous awards along the way.
