Irving Feld books Buddy Holly and the Crickets to headline his Fall edition of the Biggest Show of Stars in 1958. A modest 17-date tour was outlined for the Eastern U.S. and Canada. The tour rehearsed on October 2 in New York City before heading for Worcester to open the tour the following day. Buddy and the Crickets sign for $9,900 for the tour. Tragically, four months later Buddy Holly would be killed in a plane crash with Richie Valens and The Big Bopper while on another package tour.
