If you loved the beautiful songs and thrilling delivery of Roy Orbison, the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre has a show for you.
Lonely: a Tribute to Roy Orbison takes to the big stage on Thursday, March 17 starting at 7:30 p.m.
The Big O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, his powerful yet lyrical voice, his complex compositions and dark emotional ballads.
From 1960-64, Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including Only The Lonely, Crying, and Oh, Pretty Woman.
His passionate, bolero-style singing, and unique arrangements sent hits like Dream Baby, Ooby Dooby, Blue Angel, Blue Bayou, You Got It and In Dreams up the charts.
Tragically, his life was cut short, leaving fans with only the music to enjoy.
But The Lonely brings back those days, delivering a sensitive and dynamic tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison, producers promise.
Mike Demers leads a talented group of musicians as they explore the legend’s musical history, approaching the project with a sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings, and delighting sell-out crowds.
Tickets are $42.50 plus charges. Get them at the Cowichan Ticket Centre or by phoning 250-748-7529 or go online to cowichanpac.ca and order them there.
