Fury’s Tornados storm back into the county for an evening of rock ‘n’ roll next week.

Now in its 20th year, the show Halfway to Paradise – The Billy Fury Story will feature Colin Gold as Fury.

Born in Liverpool, a shy 19-year-old Ronnie Wycherley went to the Birkenhead Essoldo in the hope of interesting the show’s star, Marty Wilde, with some of his compositions.

Thirty minutes later rock impresario Larry Parnes had pushed him out onto the stage and re-christened him - Billy Fury. Fury’s Tornados remain Billy’s longest ever serving band and continue to tour in the hit show with all the original members.

They remember their old friend and boss by performing hits including I Will, Last Night Was Made For Love, Wondrous Place, Jealousy and Halfway To Paradise.

Halfway to Paradise is at the Wellingborough venue on Thursday, February 11.

Tickets cost £19.50 and are available by calling 01933 270 007 or online at www.thecastle.org.uk
