Recorded Live in 1987, A Black & White Night is a classic Roy Orbison music album and television special that features a stellar cast of top musicians, with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, KD Lang, Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne and many more accompanying Roy Orbison on stage for some unforgettable performances
For the very first time, this concert will be reproduced in its entirety. Aaron W Mansfield, an Internationally acclaimed artist in his own right, bridges the gap between baritone and tenor with his 3-4 octave range. His definitive voice is only comparable to the Big ‘O’.
Aaron W Mansfield, has the combination of Orbison’s powerful, impassioned and distinctive voice that makes him the perfect candidate to bring ‘A Black and White Night’ back to the stage. For the first time since 1987 in a two part concert, Aaron W Mansfield will showcase Orbison’s appeal with the first part depicting the early years followed by the second act, a tribute to Roy Orbison’s Black & White Night Concert in full.Apart from the star studded line up of musicians and rock stars featured, backing Roy Orbison in this amazing Concert was the ‘TCB’ band. The very band that backed Elvis Presley between 1969-1977. Ironically, One of the world’s best Elvis tribute bands will be backing Aaron Mansfield’s tribute to The Big ‘O’ in a Black and White Night’.
As one fan recently said, “close your eyes and you’re listening to Roy Orbison and then open your eyes and you’re looking at Roy Orbison”, “Aaron W Mansfield is the closest tribute to the Big ‘O’ anywhere on the planet”.
“Aaron Mansfield is simply the Voice of Roy Orbison. The festival has never heard anything quite as unique.”
