FOLLOWING his West End debut at The Adelphi Theatre and winning The National Tribute Awards Best Theatre tour Award, the one and only Barry Steele is set to put the rock back into 'The Big O' as he takes to the stage to commemorate this legend in The Roy Orbison Story.

The concert will be at the Southport Theatre on Saturday, August 3 at 7.30pm.

This is a chance to get ready for an upbeat night of solid gold hits and contemporary genius as Barry Steele and a fabulous cast of musicians and singers, celebrate and commemorates the musical legacy of Roy Orbison and many of his friends from the late 60s to the late 80s when The Big O was on the cusp of a phenomenal return to super stardom.

Barry is joined on stage a five-piece band and guest pianist Boogie Williams as the production present original material written but never sung by Roy Orbison and showcase elements of the symphonic orchestration first heard on the recently released Albums.

This production also features chart busting hits originally performed by Jerry Lee Lewis, Procol Harum, Del Shannon, ELO, Tom Petty, Chris Isaak, The Spencer Davis Group and culminates in a brilliant accolade as the whole cast comes together to pay homage to the original super group The Traveling Wilburys.’

With a feelgood factor built in, this show really does have something for everyone.

Barry Steele has been entertaining audiences with his uncanny ability to recreate the vocal talents of the legendary Roy Orbison, winning rave reviews across the globe. His vocal talents have been described as ‘True Identikit Brilliance.’
