Do you remember Roy Orbison, the virtuoso who could croon his way into our hearts? Let’s embark on a nostalgia-filled journey, recalling a remarkable moment in music history – the day Roy took the stage on the Black & White Night concert.
A Night to Remember
1987 marked a year of historic significance in the world of music, and for us, the ardent followers of Roy Orbison, it brought a timeless treasure. Roy and his dazzling ensemble of friends convened for the Black & White Night Concert. We saw our favorite man in black delivering a soul-stirring rendition of ‘Pretty Woman’, the song we’ve all come to love and cherish.
Not Just a Stage, But a Gathering of Greats
On that September night, the air buzzed with electric anticipation as some of the most revered names in music – Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and Bonnie Raitt, to name a few – were there to share the stage with Orbison. Imagine that all these iconic performers coming together for a night of unforgettable music!
A Song’s Story as Pretty as the Woman
Who can forget the memorable origin of ‘Pretty Woman’? It all started as a playful remark by Orbison’s songwriting partner, Bill Dees, which sparked the creation of this classic hit. Roy’s melodic interpretation of a woman’s beauty weaved through each lyric, became an anthem celebrating womanhood.
