That’ll Be The Day returned to Bournemouth this week with a brand new show for 2012, and despite having been on the road for over 25 years, it is still as fresh as ever and great entertainment.
The show has music covering all eras from the 1950’s right up to Whitney Houston and features a talented cast of multi-instrumentalist/vocalists. Highlights include a superb Shadows medley featuring guitarists Iain Hawkins, Oliver Gray and Clive Fishlock and a great drum duet from Mark Street and Oliver Gray.
As always the pace is fast and relentless, with a perfect mixture of musical tributes and comedy sketches. Many of the comedy highlights feature Trevor Payne and Gary Anderson – a great Bill and Ben routine (aided and abetted by Rebel Dean as weed) and Steptoe & Son , featuring Albert Steptoe (Payne) ’s unique take on ‘My Favourite Things’ (from the Sound Of Music) being particular crowd pleasers. Trevor Payne’s perennial Mick Jagger monologue brings the house down as always.
