This amazing musical has been seen by millions of people world-wide and tells the story of the tragically short life of Buddy Holly. Featuring over 20 classic songs made famous by this legend, including "Peggy Sue" and "That'll Be The Day" you'll be captivated by his meteoric rise from small town Lubbock, Texas, his determination to be the first white act to play the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, a whirlwind marriage and the ill- fated last concert in Iowa. The musical then recreates that final performance with appearances by The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. Truly the "day the music died."
