Rock Legends takes audiences on a musical journey through the decades

Rock Legends is part concert, part tribute, and all rock ‘n’ roll. Audiences will have the chance to rock out to some of the greatest hits spanning four decades when this one-of-a-kind show hits the Playhouse on Thursday, November 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Created by talented musician Billy McGuigan, this unique rock revue embarks on a musical journey, beginning with the ’50s rock ‘n’ roll of Elvis, Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis, to ’60s British Invasion bands like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Who. Billy and his band will hit the groove of the ’70s with the Bee Gees and piano men Billy Joel and Elton John, and even dabble in the music of the ’80s with the likes of Tom Petty, U2 and more.

The audience plays an important role in creating Rock Legends’ lineup, which is different at each show. Audience members will be asked to fill out a survey to determine which era they’d like to focus on. Throughout the show, individual people in the audience will be asked to make on the spot live requests, and they’ll have the opportunity to choose between different artists they’d like to hear.

Billy McGuigan grew up in a musical household, playing guitar and singing Beatles songs along with his father and brothers. In fact, his brothers Matthew (vocals, bass) and Ryan (vocals, acoustic guitar) are part of his band, along with George Laughery on guitar and string instruments, and percussionist Rich Miller.

Rock Legends combines dazzling renditions of classic rock hits with a stunning multimedia show to create an evening of pure rock ‘n’ roll, customized and created by the audience.

The Fredericton Playhouse is pleased to participate in A November to Remember, a special promotion presented by 105.3 The Fox. Military personnel and their families can take part in a special two-for-one ticket deal when purchasing tickets for Rock Legends. Eligible participants are asked to simply present military ID at the box office to receive two tickets for the price of one.

    My girl friends and I saw the show as our “girls night” and had the best time. The Band was truly awesome and played exactly what we were looking for. Great Job. We hope they will come back and visit us again!!!
