Barry Steele and a fabulous cast of musicians and singers return to Nottingham, to take you on a musical journey from ‘The Black and White Night’ right through to the ‘Traveling Wilburys’ and beyond. They promise they’ll have you dancing in the aisles, in an evening jam-packed with solid gold hits. Rock and Roll with style.
In 1963, Roy Orbison performed for the first time at The Adelphi in Slough – in December 2018, Barry Steele performed at The Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End.
In 1988 Roy Orbison joined ‘The Traveling Wilburys.’- in Barry Steele and Friends, the whole cast comes together to create an incredible fusion of Rock n roll as they truly capture the essence of this original supergroup.
Chris Isaak collected many awards on behalf of The Orbison Family – he also recorded many of Roy Orbison’s songs – in Barry Steele and Friends, the compliment is returned with stunning versions of global smash hits ‘Blue Hotel’ and ‘Wicked Game’.
In 2017, Roy Orbison classics were re-mastered by The Philharmonic orchestra! – Barry Steele and Friends proudly present their versions of these masterpieces.
In 2019 – thanks to the wonders of technology, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly shared the stage as the Hologram tour toured the world. This year our very own ‘brown-eyed handsome man’ joins the show in Nottingham.
