THE Hippodrome in Great Yarmouth brings back the rock 'n' roll shows which work so well in the circular auditorium with three retro extravaganzas.

On May 22, the show is Elvis Rocks, the story encompassing Elvis' incredible musical journey from his humble beginnings at the Sun Studio's Memphis Tennessee, to the iconic world superstar of Las Vegas. The Elvis Rocks show is highly visual, with leading roles played by Steve Halliday and Michael King.

On June 6, the Hippodrome hosts the recreation of Buddy Holly's fateful 1959 Winter Dance Party tour which ended in disaster. Buddy Holly is joined by Richie Valens, The Big Bopper and Dion in an emotional show that proves the music did not indeed die but lives on, more vibrant and relevant than ever.

On July 7, the UK legends return in a brand new touring show, Made in Britain, celebrating the unforgettable and timeless classic hits from the UK's foremost rock 'n' roll stars. The first half of the two-hour show features the early years where Cliff, Fury and The Beatles paved the way in British music for all to follow.

The second half highlights all the classic Cliff and Fury pop tracks plus songs taken from Lennon and McCartney's unrivalled solo careers.

Ticket for the shows are priced £18 and £17, with OAPs and children £15. Buy online at www.hippodromecircus.co.uk or call the box office on 01493 844172.
