Rock and roll kings return


Hail, hail, rock and roll! Take a journey back to the class of ’59 with the hits that cemented a generation and gave birth to the teenager.

The Class of ’59: The Rock & Roll Circus Tour recreates an era dominated by slicked-back hair, leather jackets, bobby socks and bubble gum.

An era in which petrol was so cheap, it not only fuelled hot rods but fired up a musical movement that, while short-lived, would transcend generations in the hearts and souls of music fan the world over.

Stopping at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre on Saturday 31 August at 8pm, the two-hour musical extravaganza celebrates the hits and the legacies of the original stars of rock and roll.

It features Scott ‘Buddy’ Cameron as Buddy Holly, Anthony Petrucci as Elvis Presley, Matty Breen as Jerry Lee Lewis, James Nation-Ingle as Bill Haley and Simon O’Connor as The Big Bopper.

Cameron is no stranger to portraying Buddy Holly, having done so for well over a decade to many a rapturous crowd.

He is one of the most recognised Buddy Holly performers in the world, receiving rave reviews in the international smash hit musical Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story in productions staged from 2005 to 2009.

Crowned the Ultimate Elvis Presley Tribute at the 2018 Parkes Elvis Festival, Petrucci similarly gives an authentic portrayal of The King, performing all over Australia and the world, including in Las Vegas.

For one night only, Hunter fans can take a stroll down memory lane with Cameron, Petrucci at the Class of ’59 cast.
