Barry Steele takes on the role of ‘The Big O’ in The Roy Orbison Story® at 3Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Friday 6th May 2022.
Tickets for original date 29th May 2021 are valid for the rescheduled date 6th May 2022, no exchange necessary.
Barry Steele is a very unassuming man with a great sense of humour, but above all he has an incredible talent. In fact, he is so convincing in his role as Roy Orbison that many have wondered if he is miming! It is for this reason and to allay any fears that the show features songs that Roy never actually sang.
Barry has toured across the globe in his role as Roy Orbison, but it is a far cry from his time in the RAF when he was stationed at RAF Waddington, Scampton and RAF Tongeren in Belgium. Whilst in the Forces Barry has refueled both Vulcan Bombers (The Ladies of the Sky) and The Red Arrows, he also drove the green goddesses during the fireman’s strike in 1977.
