Four giants of the Rock ‘n’ Roll world come together for the first time in BE BOP A LULA! A brand-new show which will take your breath away from the first chord to the explosive finale!
Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent first came to the UK in the legendary 1960 tour. Eddie tragically never made it back home after dying in a car crash over here but his musical genius paved the way for future artists such as The Beatles. Forever young, Eddie became a huge cult figure for Teds and Rockers alike.
Gene Vincent was an instant Rock’n’Roll rebel who fans simply loved. Sculpted in the UK by legendary producer Jack Good his black leather almost Shakespearean moody image almost scared fans into submission. One of the coolest ever rockers, Gene’s songs will rock you out of your seat.
Billy Fury was also on that fateful tour and he became great friends with Cochran. Billy is known as Britain’s true rocker having written his own first album ‘The Sound Of Fury’. For an artist to write his own songs was almost unheard of back in the 1950’s and this album, produced by the legendary Jack Good is now a classic. Some of it is performed in Be Bop A Lula along with Billy’s huge hits.
Roy Orbison needs no introduction. With songs such as ‘In Dreams’, ‘Crying’, ‘Mean Woman Blues’ and ‘ Only The Lonely’ he is a big addition to the already amazing line up.
Backed by some of the UK’s finest musicians, Gavin Stanley and Lars Young recreate these legends with passion and a very real ‘feel’ of the artists and their music.
Both artists have had extensive experience performing in London’s West End and Broadway. Don’t miss this chance to see them.
“Well……Be Bop A Lula, she’s my baby….”
