Hail, hail, rock and roll... Take a step back to the decade that created music legends and influenced a formidable culture. From the producers of the smash hit concert tour Elvis Meets Buddy comes The Class Of '59!

A tribute to an era where the songs are timeless, the hits are endless, and the flair is never forgotten, The Class Of '59 features a classic selection from Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Bill Haley, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Everly Brothers and Fonzie.

From the ORIGINAL class of '59, Australia's very own living legend Lonnie Lee brings this unique concept to the stage.

The music will be brought to life by Anthony Petroucci, Scott 'Buddy' Cameron, Eric Rassmussen, Cassidy Wilson, James Nation-Ingle, Leoni Sackson, Brian Dean and Alan Freeman.

Guaranteeing a foot tapping, head bopping fantastic rock 'n' roll show for all, come lose yourself in the show and the music that will have you swinging in the aisles and jiving the night away!



Get Ready Australia!  Lonnie Lee's own history is presented in the first set to introduce just how rock began, and that it is alive and rockin' today!  With the greatest rock and roll band ever assembled, 2011 gets ready to rock to the golden era of rock 'n' roll as we know it today.

Dance with us back to an era when rock and roll influenced and created a social movement for the day's teenagers... the way you dressed, the hairstyles, the language and the love.  Walk along the street and you saw the gals sporting hourglass silhouettes accessorized by gloves and pearls. Bobby socks and bubble gum were everywhere; and the guys with sideburns and slicked back hair sporting the leather jacket and denim jeans... an era where black horned rim brow line glasses became a trend... an era where petrol was so cheap that it fuelled not only the hot rods on the roads but fired up a musical movement that would only be lived for a short while but would last in the hearts and souls of billions for eternity. It is this era that will be recreated on stage ....

Join our own legend Lonnie Lee and take the journey back to the Class of 59!
