Hit rock 'n' roll West End show Be Bop A Lula heading to Coventry's Albany Theatre

Sarah Mason 23rd Sep, 2021

A HIT West End Theatre show is coming to Coventry tomorrow (Friday, September 24) as part of the UK City of Culture.

Be Bop A Lula – at 7.30pm at The Albany Theatre – presents a slice of rock ‘n’ roll history showcasing giants, such as Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Billy Fury, and Buddy Holly.

In 1960 American rockers Eddie and Gene flew in from the States and were joined by British heartthrob Billy Fury for the UK’s very first multi-artist rock ’n’ roll tour.

Theatre-goers in Coventry will be able to relive those seminal concerts.

Producer Pete Tobit said: “Reviewers were appalled by the on-stage antics. Audiences screamed their approval. British youth culture was born!”

Tickets, at £26.50, are available from albanytheatre.co.uk or by calling the box office on 02476 998 964.
