In 1958, Buddy Holly & The Crickets played 25 venues across England back to back from 1st to 25th March (playing two or even three shows a night) and performed at Newcastle City Hall on 6th March 1958. The American singing sensation also headlined a variety bill hosted by ‘the comedian with the modern style’, Des O’Connor.
