MUSIC fans can enjoy classic hits by legendary performer Roy Orbison when a new show arrives in East Renfrewshire.

Barry Steele and friends will perform The Roy Orbison Story at Eastwood Park Theatre, in Giffnock, on Thursday, May 7.

The show is described as “an upbeat and contemporary” tribute to American singer-songwriter Orbison, known to his fans as ‘The Big O.’

Between 1960 and 1966, more than 20 of his singles reached the Billboard Top 40, including ‘Only the Lonely’ and ‘Oh, Pretty Woman.’

In the 1980s, Orbison experienced a resurgence in popularity following the success of several cover versions of his songs.

He also co-founded rock supergroup the Traveling Wilburys with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.

Orbison died of a heart attack in 1988, at the age of 52.

However, his music will be brought to life once more when the tribute show takes place in Giffnock.

A spokesperson for Eastwood Park Theatre said: “Following on from his West End debut at The Adelphi Theatre, Barry Steele appears for the first time as Roy Orbison in a spectacular new show, full of solid gold hits that celebrate the musical legacy of The Big O and his friends.

“With an 80s feel built in, this is a show not to be missed.

“It also includes a special accolade to The Traveling Wilburys.”

The show starts at 7.30pm and standard tickets are priced at £23.50.

Bring a group of 10 people and one person will be admitted for free.
