The Unravelling Wilburys

About this event

With their perfect combination of brilliant musicianship and tongue in cheek humour, The Unravelling Wilburys are one of the UK’s top tributes.

Playing the songs of 1980s supergroup The Traveling Wilburys, the band also perform some choice numbers from the back catalogue of each of its five iconic members; Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne.

Born out of the ashes of the popular Beatles tribute band Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band, the fabulous The Unravelling Wilburys feature Sticky Willy, Walter, Thumper, Blind Melon, and Honky Tonk Wilbury.

Their show tells the story of a fateful night at Nashville’s Tootsies Bar in 1987, when their songs were (allegedly) stolen by Messrs Orbison and co. and the hard road they had to tread to get ‘em back.

Songs such as End of the Line, Handle with Care, The Devil’s Been Busy, and Tweeter and The Monkey Man form the basis of the set, which also features songs including Pretty Woman (Orbison), Mr Blue Sky (Lynne), American Girl (Petty), While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Harrison), and A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall (Dylan).

With music for everyone to enjoy, this is an evening not to be missed. A fabulous night out for lovers of great music.
