Saluting our Rock n Roll Legends

Before his untimely death at the age of 22, Buddy Holly was a rising star and a central figure in the evolution of Rock and Roll. In his seven year career, Holly recorded only three albums, but his impact on future artists was so significant that he was among the very first singers inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and he remains near the top of Rolling Stone’s list of the greatest artists of all time.

In 1959, Holly was killed in a plane crash along with Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. In his iconic hit “American Pie,” Don McLean memorialized the date as “The Day the Music Died.”

On Saturday, October 26th, “Not Fade Away” will bring to the Historic Hemet Theatre their high energy tribute to Buddy Holly and the Legends of Rock n Roll. The band members (straight outta NYC) have performed in off-Broadway shows and dazzled audiences nationally in productions of The Buddy Holly Story, Ring of Fire, and Million Dollar Quartet. Together they have created a special tribute to the iconic music of Holly, Valens, The Big Bopper and other iconic Rock and Roll stars. Come watch as they dance, jump up on their instruments, play a solo behind their heads, and jump through ropes — all to powerful renditions of the classic hit songs like “That’ll Be The Day,” “Peggy Sue,” “Summertime Blues,” “La Bamba,” “Chantilly Lace,” and “Twist and Shout.” You’ve never seen a Buddy Holly show quite like this!

This show will be the fifth in Season Three of the “Tribute Mania” Concert Series. The series continues with tributes Huey Lewis & the News (11/2), The Blues Brothers (11/23), and Styx (12/7).

The “Friday Nite Live” concert series also continues with tributes to Reba McEntire (11/8) and Keith Urban (12/13).

Show tickets $22 presale / $25 day of show. Showtime is 7:00 pm, with doors open at 6:15 pm. Information on all theatre events is available at www.HistoricHemetTheatre.com or by calling the Ticket Office, (951) 658-5950.
