Film synopsis

One of the great pioneers of pop and rock ‘n’ roll music, Del Shannon is best remembered for his debut smash hit single, Runaway, a song that continues to have an immortal influence on popular music. Though classified a teen idol in the late 50s and 60s, Shannon’s song-writing favoured brooding themes of abandonment, loss, and rejection, making his music, and his powerful, falsetto voice, timeless to this day. Performing here in front of a packed audience at the Castle Hill RSL in Sydney in 1989, Shannon showcases his many hits – included I Go To PiecesLittle Town Flirt, Hats Off To Larry – throughout a rousing live show.
