Paul Hopkins Big O & The Wilburys Tribute Show Featuring Five Fabulous Tributes to Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne

The late 1980s saw the birth of one of the most famous and memorable supergroups of all time, The Traveling Wilburys. Featuring five individual icons in their own right, this formidable team created an album that completely rocked the music industry and sold over five million copies worldwide. Pooling the considerable talents of George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, The Wilburys were a real force to be reckoned with and created a sound and style so unique that even to this day there has never been anything quite like it.

With The Wilburys never actually going on tour, due to the untimely death of Roy Orbison in 1988, played here by Paul Hopkins, their fans never got to see them all together in a live concert experience. With that in mind, Paul has joined up with five other very talented singers and musicians, who together have formed this incredible Traveling Wilbury tribute show.

Each one has achieved great things in their own individual professional careers and still pursue many solo projects as well as being involved in this fabulous production. Their successes are largely due to the fact they are exceptionally talented in their own field but it is also down to sheer hard work, dedication and a real love of what they do. Music sounds different when the people creating it are naturally following their vocation and not just doing a job. This is makes this band so amazing to watch. Each artiste has his own strengths and talents which is imperative when trying to match the originals - they are pretty big shoes to fill! Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan are all legends with their own individual fan bases and for that reason you have to get it right.

So enjoy an evening of classic songs from the Eighties Supergroup The Traveling Wilburys including Pretty Woman, You Got It, Mr Blue Sky, Here Comes The Sun, I Drove All Night, Blowin In The Wind, I Won’t Back Down, In Dreams, I Got My Mind Set On You, Knocking On Heavens Door, Handle With Care, Roll Over Beethoven, End of the Line plus many more.

PLUS Disco with our dj playing the best party classics.
