Back by popular demand, crowd-pleasing performer Billy McGuigan returns to the Playhouse on Sunday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. with Rave On! The Buddy Holly Experience.

Following his memorable and wildly entertaining show Rock Legends at the Playhouse in 2013, McGuigan is back with a performance that reinvents the ordinary tribute show. Rave On! is an electrifying, high-energy, rock extravaganza.

During this rock ’n’ roll tour-de-force, audience members will experience all the thrills of a Buddy Holly concert, featuring hits like “Peggy Sue,” “It’s So Easy,” “That’ll be the Day” and, of course, “Rave On.” McGuigan will also celebrate the birth of a musical era by paying homage to rockers such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.

Considered America’s premier Buddy Holly interpreter, McGuigan is a dead-ringer for the legendary rock ’n’ roll icon. Backed by the rockin’ Rave On Band, this show breathes new life into the music of Buddy Holly. Audiences will be transported by McGuigan’s energy, realism and sincerity during this must-see rock performance.

The Playhouse is pleased to present an Experience More! activity in conjunction with Rave On! The Buddy Holly Experience. On Monday, February 23 at 7:30 p.m., the public is invited to attend a free, non-ticketed film screening of The Buddy Holly Story. This 1978 biographical film about the life of rock musician Buddy Holly features an Oscar-nominated lead performance by Gary Busey.

Tickets for Rave On! The Buddy Holly Experience are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office at 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
