Get Set for a Big Night as Empire favourite Barry Steele returns

People are travelling from across Lancashire for the return of Barry Steele and his incredible live musical journey as he plays homage to the legendary Roy Orbison.

The show “Roy Orbison and Friends” arrives at the Blackburn Empire on Friday 7th April and it looks set to be another sell-out.

Barry Steele is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading vocalists playing homage to the legendary Roy Orbison. He has stunned audiences across the globe with his uncanny similarity and ability to authentically revive the exquisite toe-tapping sound of this music giant. Barry Steele is quite simply unmissable, as he takes you on this specially produced completely live musical journey in time.

Not only does the Barry bring the music of The Big O, back to the centre stage, the show also features chart busting hits originally performed and made famous by George Harrison, Del Shannon,  Jerry Lee Lewis,  ELO, The Spencer Davis Group, The Traveling Wilburys and of course the Big O, all backed by a big screen and phenomenally talented musicians resulting in an incredible fusion of 60s solid gold classics and 80s contemporary musical genius all on one stage.

It’s more than a tribute, It’s a musical story in time!

Michael Berry, chairman of the Empire Theatre, said, “We always look forward to Barry’s shows and audiences simply love being transported back in time through a whole catalogue of classic songs. It really is a show not to be missed.”
