                                      THE  RARE  TOUR  POSTER











                   From the fabulous Chris Rees Collection

                 Click the link above and you can see ALL TOUR POSTERS !!!

     Buddy Holly, Jerry Allison und Joe B. Mauldin (the "Crickets") tourten im
     Frühling des Jahres 1958 durch Großbritannien und Australien.

     Im Sommer 1958 waren sie einer der Acts in der "Summer Dance Party Tour",       die den Mitlleren Westen der USA bereiste. Am 3. Oktober 1958 fuhren sie
     allein von New York City nach Worcester in Massachusetts, um dort bei der
     ersten Show aufzutreten, die ihre letzte gemeinsame war.

     Der Ort des Auftritts: Worcester Memorial Auditorium, eine im Jahr 1933 er-
     öffnete Mehrzweck - Arena mit 3800 Sitzen.

     Buddy Holly ging bekanntermaßen ohne die Original Crickets noch einmal auf
     Tour im oberen Mittleren Westen im Januar und Februar 1959, aber dies war
     die letzte Tour mit der Originalgruppe.

                  Das Auditorium hat sich seit 1958 nicht verändert.


Buddy Holly, Jerry Allison, and Joe B. Mauldin (the "Crickets") spent the spring of 1958 touring in the UK and Australia.

That summer, they toured the Midwestern U.S. on a package "Summer Dance Party" tour. On October 3, 1958, they drove separately from New York City to Worcester, Mass., where they played the first show of what would be their last tour at the Worcester Memorial Auditorium at Lincoln Square.

Buddy Holly, of course, would go on to tour the upper Midwest without the original Crickets in January and February 1959, but this would be the last tour undertaken by the original group.

The auditorium still looks exactly the same as it did in 1958.

      Billiards Joint Bancroft Hotel Worcester MA

Following the show, which ended around 11 PM, the Crickets drove 3/4 mile south on Main Street to the Bancroft Hotel, at 50 Franklin Street. The Bancroft stands today, although it is currently an apartment building. Below the hotel, at the same address, is this little billiards joint.

Nach dem Ende der Show, die etwa um 23 Uhr endete, fuhren die Crickets 3/4 Meilen südlich auf der Hauptstraße zum Bancroft Hotel, das als Adresse hat:
50 Franklin Street.

Das Hotel gibt es noch, obwohl es nun umfunktioniert wurde in ein Appartement - Haus. Unterhalb vom ehemaligen Hotel, unter der gleichen Adresse, ist dieser kleine Billard - Treff. Steht zwar leer, ist aber eine
historische Adresse ich Sachen "Buddy Holly & The Crickets".
