On February 2nd, 1959, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.B. "The Big Bopper" Richardson performed at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa. The plane crash that occurred hours later claimed the lives of all three artists and changed music history forever. Using information gathered from documentaries, books, and the memories of musicians at the show, tonight's concert will recreate Holly's last show with utmost accuracy and attention to detail. Featuring classic songs like "That'll Be The Day," "Peggy Sue," "It's So Easy," "La Bamba," "Oh Donna," and "Chantilly Lace," The Night the Music Lived is more than a theatrical rock 'n' roll show. It's an experience!
