Barry Steele and a fabulous cast of musicians and singers will take you on a musical journey from The Black and White Night right through to The Traveling Wilburys. They promise they’ll have you dancing in the aisles, with two fantastic shows in one great evening.  

The evening opens with style as they pay tribute to this award-winning show with their version of this TV Classic. In 2018 Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly toured the world on the Hologram tour. In Barry Steele and Friends, the brown-eyed handsome man joins the show to give you the classic hits Oh Boy! Heartbeat and of course That’ll be the day.

The show brings Roy Orbison’s legacy into the 21st Century with critically acclaimed symphonic versions of Heartbreak Radio, Blue Bayou, It’s Over and of course, Running Scared.

In 1988 Roy Orbison joined a group of iconic artists known collectively as The Traveling Wilburys. Their musical legacy remains as vital and as popular today as it was back in the day. The whole cast comes together to celebrate those 35 years and truly defines the spirit of this original supergroup with their versions of those masterpieces. From Handle with Care to The End of The Line, the second show of the evening is jam-packed full of Wilbury Magic.

With big-screen projection and the incredible voice of Barry Steele, this top-class production has something for everyone!
