He’s the man with the sunglasses and the black suit who delivered some of the world’s darkest and most emotional ballads, yet Texas-born Roy Orbison remains one of the most distinctive looking, and sounding performers in modern music. The one and only Barry Steele takes on the role in The Roy Orbison Story, which is coming to Shanklin Theatre on 8th December.
Barry Steele and Friends are looking forward to working alongside the wonderful staff at Shanklin Theatre as they present an upbeat night of solid gold 60s hits and 80s contemporary genius they celebrate the musical legacy of The Big O in a very special show revamped completely to acknowledge the 30 years since The Big O passed away.
The production also features original material written but never sung by Roy Orbison and showcases elements of the orchestrated new albums alongside chart busting hits originally made famous by Jerry Lee Lewis, Procol Harum, Del Shannon, Chris Isaak, The Spencer Davis Group and a stunningly brilliant accolade as the whole cast comes together to pay homage to the original super group ‘The Traveling Wilburys.’
Barry Steele has been stunning audiences with his uncanny ability to recreate the vocal talents of the legendary Roy Orbison, winning rave reviews across the globe. His vocal talents are quite simply ‘True Identikit Brilliance.’
