Roy Orbison hits at Skeg theatre

THE hits of Roy Orbison will belt out across the Embassy Theatre in Skegness when a top tribute act comes to town this weekend.

‘Roy Orbison & Friends in Concert’ will wow the audience with their spectacular tribute show at 7.30pm on Sunday (September 2).

“If you love good music, then this is the show for you as Barry Steele presents his all live spectacular multi-media tribute to The Big ‘O’, featuring classic Orbison hits from the 60s right through to the late 80s, when Roy joined a band of men,who called themselves The Travelling Wilburys,” said a spokesperson.

“Using both original and film footage from the era and backed by his fabulous five-piece band, Barry Steele will bring the life and character of Roy Orbison back to the centre stage, where it truly belongs, as he puts the rock back into The Big ‘O’, with his trademark dark rimmed glasses, soaring vocals and Orbison style.

“Add to the mix the sounds of The Shadows, Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis and our special guests Paul Molloy as Elvis and Marc J. Robinson as Buddy Holly and you have yourself a spectacular fusion of good old “Rock ‘n’ Roll” and contemporary musical genius all on one stage.

“Book yourself a ticket to ride this incredible musical journey.

“It’s not The Big ‘O’ but you simply won’t believe it,” they added.

Tickets for the show are £18.50 for adults, £17.50 for over 60s and £10 for children.
