The Advertiser has teamed up with the City Hall in Sheffield to offer readers the chance to win one of FOUR pairs of tickets to see Buddy Holly & His Buddies on Wednesday, September 5, at 8pm.
Six decades ago, on March 4, 1958, Buddy Holly & The Crickets performed at the Sheffield City Hall as part of their one and only UK tour.
Their music went on to greatly influence The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Hollies — who chose their name partly out of admiration for Buddy Holly - and what would become known as the British invasion,
which dominated the pop charts of the 60s and beyond.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary year of this historic musical event, Buddy Holly’s distinctive music will once again will be rocking the City Hall in a brand new show as Past Masters present Buddy
Holly & His Buddies.
As it is also the 60th anniversary of The Shadows becoming Cliff Richard’s backing band, Buddy Holly & His Buddies will, in addition, feature a homage to the original Bachelor Boy and his band.
And what’s more, it will feature bassist Alan Jones, who was the bass guitarist of The Shadows from 1977 to 1990, enjoying chart success with Riders in the Sky, Don’t Cry for me Argentina and Theme from
The Deer Hunter, among many which he co-arranged.
