Longview, TX (Letourneau University) — LeTourneau University will present “Rave On!” the Buddy Holly Experience at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 23, in the S. E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center on the main campus, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. in Longview.
Rave On! The Buddy Holly Experience reinvents the ordinary tribute show with an electrifying, high-energy, rock n’ roll extravaganza featuring America’s premiere Buddy Holly interpreter, Billy McGuigan, a dead-ringer for the legendary rocker. Backed by the rockin’ Rave On Band, the show breathes new life into the music of Buddy Holly in a rock and roll tour-de-force featuring such hits as “Peggy Sue,” “Raining in My Heart,” “It’s So Easy,” “That’ll Be the Day,” “True Love Ways,” “Oh Boy” and of course, “Rave On.” In a unique twist, Billy as Buddy celebrates the birth of an era and pays homage to his fellow rockers Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper.
