Buddy’s Back! is one of the most exciting shows to hit the Australian cabaret circuit in years.

During this amazing show Scot Robin, who played the lead role in the smash hit musical Buddy (Original cast), will perform over thirty of Buddy Holly’s hit songs including: That’ll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, Raining In My Heart, Rave On and of course Oh Boy!

Buddy’s Back! has and will continue to excite audiences both visually and musically with its high-energy performance, brilliant costumes and fantastic musicianship. Scot Robin breathes life back into the legend that is Buddy Holly.

This year will see the show celebrating its 18th year of proving itself yet again to be among Australia’s most successful production shows. Buddy’s Back! The Buddy Holly Show will have audiences dancing in the aisles.
