The live music extravaganza will open February 3 at the Lyric Theatre, Star City, for a strictly limited 12-week season. The curtain will go up on the show 50 years to the day since ''the music died''. It was February 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly died in a plane crash, alongside Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson (the Big Bopper). Aged just 22, Holly left behind a legacy of more than 30 timeless hits. Audiences will be treated to two hours of his greatest hits including That'll Be The Day, Peggy Sue, I'm Looking For Someone To Love, Rave On, Heartbeat, Maybe Baby, and Everyday. With the Big Bopper's Chantilly Lace and Ritchie Valens' La Bamba it will be total music overload. Star of the show, Scott Cameron, first played the guitar at age 5. Filling the big shoes of the Big Bopper will be Luke Tonkin, with Jonathan Whitlow as Ritchie Valens and Laura Bunting as Maria Elena Holly.

A YOUNG Inner West performer will have a featured role in the world's biggest youth variety event -- the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Schools Spectacular . David Leaupepe, 16, will take centre stage on November 28 and 29 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, taking audiences on an exhilarating musical journey inspired by Australian life. The Concord resident and Mosman High student will perform as a featured vocalist in his first Schools Spectacular, singing a series of songs including U2's hit, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, alongside Inner West's former Australian Idol contestant Roshani Priddis, Hi 5's Nathan Foley and former Idol and Young Diva Paulini. David said he was honoured with the opportunity and at first didn't think he was good enough. ''It's really odd. I never really had this opportunity and definitely really wanted it,'' he said. ''I didn't think I was good until I tried out, and out of the hundreds of people who auditioned, they chose me . . . it represents the work I've been doing.'' David is heavily involved in a large youth ministry as a guitarist, is the lead singer for his band Shoulders of Giants and has been attending the School of Rock since 2006.
