Not only the lonely adore the music of The Big O, the late Roy Orbison.

And the good news is, a tribute act is coming to Malvern Theatres, to help bring January to a thrilling close.

A spokesman said: “The one and only Barry Steele takes on the role of ‘The Big O,’ in The Roy Orbison Story, He comes with great credentials and a genuine admiration for the Roy Orbison.

“Following his West End Debut at The Adelphi Theatre in The West End, Barry is set to put the rock back into ‘Roy Orbison’ as he takes to the stage to commemorate this legend in ‘The Roy Orbison Story’ in concert.”

The spokesman added: “Get ready for an upbeat night of solid gold hits and contemporary genius as Barry Steele and a cast of musicians and singers, celebrate and commemorates the musical legacy of The Big O and his friends.

“Barry is joined on stage by the sensational guest pianist Boogie Williams as they present original material written but never sung by Roy Orbison and showcase elements of the symphonic orchestration first heard on the Hologram tour.”

This production also showcases chart busting hits originally made famous by Jerry Lee Lewis, Procol Harum, Del Shannon, ELO, Tom Petty, Chris Isaak, The Spencer Davis Group “and culminates in a stunningly brilliant accolade as the whole cast comes together to pay homage to the original super group ‘The Traveling Wilburys”.

The spokesman added: With a feelgood factor built in, this show really does have something for everyone!

“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 brilliance.”

Roy Orbison had a remarkable vocal range, so much so he was admired and even perhaps slightly envied by his friend, Elvis Presley. Elvis referred to him as the ‘greatest singer in the world’ during one of his Vegas concerts.

The date for the diary is January 30, at 7.30pm.
