Buddy: The Buddy Holly StoryBuddy: The Buddy Holly Story


What a joy ride Phoenix had when their National Tour of BUDDY hit the road in 2001 and took America by storm. The Clearlake Concert finale had audiences of all ages dancing in the aisles eight times a week with Buddy, The Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. From Anchorage to Albany and from Lubbock to Lauderdale, this kickin' BUDDY pulled out all the stops. A celebration of the 50's hits that fueled Holly's meteoric rise to stardom … “Peggy Sue," “That'll Be The Day," “Oh Boy," “La Bamba” … these are just a sampling of the hit tunes that frame the legacy of this Rock'n'Roll legend.
