Audiences are invited to hear what a live show from one of the 'world’s greatest ever super groups' might have sounded like on the Isle of Wight later this month (October).

The Unravelling Wilburys will be performing at Medina Theatre, Newport.

The band were set up as a nod to The Traveling Wilburys, which consisted of The Beatles' George Harrison, ELO’s Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan.

Together they produced two albums but never played live.

Claiming to be the original Wilbury brothers from Nashville Tennessee, The Unravelling Wilburys reckon their songs were stolen by Dylan and co. who are really just a tribute to them.

It will be a return to Medina Theatre for Sticky Willie Wilbury — otherwise known as Martin Dimery, who was once a drama teacher at Medina High School. He also supplied theatre articles to the County Press (as pictured below).

“I loved my time at Medina, especially working in what was then a new theatre. I’ve visited the Island often since then, but not been back to the theatre", he said.

"I’m really looking forward to meeting up with a few old friends.”

Harrison’s While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Petty’s American Girl and Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone are among the hits set to be heard on the day.

The Unravelling Wilburys will perform on Thursday, October 19.
