BARRY STEELE & FRIENDS

THE ROY ORBISON STORY 30 YEAR SPECIAL

He’s the man with the sunglasses and the black suit who delivered some of the world’s darkest and most emotional ballads, yet Texas-born Roy Orbison remains one of the most distinctive looking, and sounding performers in modern music, despite dying 30 years ago leaving others to bring his music to the concert stage. 

But Barry Steele, who takes on the role in The Roy Orbison Story, comes with very great credentials and a genuine admiration for the Big “O”. Now he is set to put the rock back into ‘Roy Orbison’ as he takes to the stage to commemorate this legend in The Roy Orbison Story 30 Year Special. 

Expect what is being billed as an upbeat and contemporary slant on Orbison's legacy, as Barry Steele and Friends take audiences on a musical journey from the early Sun years right through to the late 1980s, when Orbison was experiencing a huge resurgence in popularity and worked with Bono,  Bruce Springsteen and others including super group the Traveling Wilburys alongside former Beatle George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne. 

So get ready for a night of solid gold 60s hits and 80s contemporary as the Roy Orbison Story celebrate the musical legacy of The Big O.  As well as the toe tapping sound of the music giant that is Roy Orbison, you'll hear the fantastic Barry Steele perform songs written by Roy Orbison, but never performed by him! 

The production also features chart busting hits originally made famous by the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, Jeff Lynne & ELO, George Harrison, Del Shannon and The Spencer Davis Group; Come and see us as there's plenty of rock with Roy! From Only the Lonely to The Traveling Wilburys, Barry Steele has been stunning audiences across the globe with his uncanny ability to recreate the vocal talents of the legendary Roy Orbison. This unmissable show will take you on a musical journey in time - don't miss out!
