The Billy Fury Story will bring the original members of the star’s band, with Colin Gold as lead vocalist, to the Castle Theatre this weekend.

Ronald Wycherley, a shy young boy from Liverpool, went on to become Billy Fury, ‘Britain’s own Elvis’ loved by the girls and one of the country’s most popular rock stars.

More than 30 years after his death, Billy’s own band, Fury’s Tornados, will be playing his biggest hits, including Last Night Was Made For Love, I Will, Wondrous Place, Jealousy, Halfway To Paradise and many more.

Billy equalled the Beatles with 24 hits during the 1960s and he spent 332 weeks in the charts.

His last hit came in 1983, following his death in January that year.

Fury never had a permanent backing group but in 1970 he hired four Nottingham-based musicians who became Fury’s Tornados.

The show will include large screens showing video footage of Billy.

Halfway to Paradise: The Billy Fury Story is on Saturday at The Castle in Wellingborough.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £18.50.
