The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including ‘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’.

Buddy will have you on your feet and “send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high” (the Boston Globe).

In the natural amphitheater of Cedar Breaks, he was overwhelmed with its “wild and colorful beauty” and a feeling of “immense solitude.” In Bryce Canyon, which he felt convinced was the most beautiful place on the planet, he heard bright E-major chords in his mind as he gazed upon the red rocks. Zion Park inspired the “ultimate joy” and he translated this into a triumphant finale.
