Buddy Holly’s Career Was Short, But His Legacy Lives On

During the golden days of Rock & Roll, a young man with glasses rose to fame with the 1957 hit “That’ll Be the Day,” and shortly after recorded dozens of iconic songs from the all-too-brief period of Buddy Holly’s musical career. His story, which has been adapted into multiple films about his life and legacy, was built into a jukebox musical that opened on Broadway in 1990, and is now celebrating its 30th Anniversary Tour coming to Midland Center for the Arts on March 15, 2020 at 3 p.m.
