May 27th

1957Buddy Holly releases his only No. 1 hit, “That’ll Be the Day.” The song had its genesis in a trip to the movies by Holly, Jerry Allison and Sonny Curtis in June 1956. The John Wayne film The Searchers was playing. Wayne’s frequently-used, world-weary catchphrase, “that’ll be the day” inspired the young musicians.

1972David Bowie appears at Ebbisham Hall, Epsom, England on his Ziggy Stardust tour. Ziggy Stardust is the persona adopted by Bowie and the human manifestation of an alien being who is attempting to present humanity with a message of hope in the last five years of its existence. The Ziggy Startdust Tour promoted Bowie’s album of the same name and spanned across England, the US, and Japan.

1987 – A U2 concert in Rome, creates quite a stir as the surrounding neighbors flood emergency services with calls about an earthquake. The earthquake turned out to be nothing more then a cranked up sound system.

1994The Eagles reunite to play their first show in fourteen years. The concert lasts over two hours and was held in Burbank, California.
