ROY ORBISON & THE TRAVELLING WILBURY’S EXPERIENCE


The Show The World Has Been Waiting For!

32nd Anniversary TOUR

 

Five Tributes in One Evening – The greatest Supergroup of all time!

ROY ORBISON * GEORGE HARRISON * TOM PETTY * JEFF LYNNE * BOB DYLAN

Currently on a nationwide tour, hit production  “Roy Orbison & The Traveling Wilburys Experience”have wowed audiences with their uncanny vocal and musical resemblances to the original band members. And with the Traveling Wilburys never actually going on tour – perhaps partly due to the untimely death of Roy Orbison in 1988 – this is a wonderful chance to enjoy a live Wilburys Experience. A real up-tempo, feel good show, audiences are treated to a range of hits, not just from the Wilburys (Handle with Care, End of the Line, Tweeter and the Monkey Man and many others), but also from the back catalogue of the famous five themselves – from Dylan’s Blowing in the Wind and Mighty Quinn, to Tom Petty’s always rousing Won’t Back Down. Other highlights include George Harrison’s Here Comes the Sun and Mr Blue Sky by Jeff Lynne.
