The tribute band bought the 50s icon, known for hits I'm Looking for Someone to Love and That'll Be the Day, back to life in Wolverhampton for one night only.

Drummer Brad Brunsdon said: "The theatre was packed last night. All three tiers had folk in them.

"The audience whooped along all evening and were on their feet, dancing by the end. After the show, we were mobbed by a really lively and enthusiastic crowd, all clamouring for autographs.

"It was an absolutely brilliant night and the best on the tour so far.”

The group have delighted audiences for 26 years, headed by Gordon Taggart who performs as Buddy Holly, in the UK and the rest of the world including Europe and a tour of the US.

Taggart was endorsed as Britain’s most popular Buddy Holly act when the boys appeared on BBC One's ‘The One and Only,’ with Graham Norton notably commenting that they were 'Buddy Brilliant'.
