The Show tells the true story of Buddy’s rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when ‘THAT’LL BE THE DAY’ hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on “THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED.” The rock and roll show/concert features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits ‘THAT’LL BE THE DAY’, ‘PEGGY SUE’, ‘EVERYDAY’, ‘OH BOY’, ‘NOT FADE AWAY’, ‘RAVE ON’ and ‘RAINING IN MY HEART’, plus Ritchie Valens’ ‘LA BAMBA’ and the Big Bopper's ‘CHANTILLY LACE’.
