How will this be possible? Well, it will be done by the Copycat Crickets, along with the Buddy Symphonic Orchestra, who will perform some of the American’s most popular tracks which will include Raining In My Heart, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore, True Love Ways, Peggy Sue, That'll Be the Day, Oh Boy, Heartbeat, Maybe Baby, Rave On, Not Fade Away and Everyday.

And with Spencer Jordan performing as Buddy, audience members will be able to hear the singer’s spellbinding vocals and guitarwork, which will be blended in with, the Buddy Symphonic Orchestra and The Copycat Crickets.

Despite having a career that only lasted seven years, Buddy Holly, whose real name was Charles Hardin Holley, is regarded as one of the greatest musicians of not just the 1950s, but of all time.

He managed to secure 14 songs in the UK’s Official Charts, which included two number ones in That’ll Be the Day and Raining in My Heart.

His songs also proved popular in the US.

However, his career came to a sudden and tragic end in February 1959, when Holly, aged just 22, was killed in a plane crash shortly after it took off.

Holly, who was on board the aircraft with J.P ‘The Big Bopper’ Richardson, and Ritchie Valens, who were 28-years-old and 17-years-old at the time, along with the pilot, all died when the plane they boarded in Mason City, Iowa, crashed near Clear Lake in the same state.

The cause of the crash was due to poor weather conditions, with the plane crashing just six miles after takeoff.

However, despite the sad news, Buddy Holly and the Crickets’ legacy continued, as their songs still charted years after their passing.
