Music from one of the best-selling recording artists of the 1960s will fill The Playhouse on July 8.

Billy Fury enjoyed a string of hit singles is widely regarded as one of the most important rock ‘n’ rollers in the UK.

In the 1960s, the singer had more Decca hits than any other artist including the Rolling Stones – making him one of the four biggest selling artists of the 1960s alongside The Beatles, Cliff and Elvis.

The singer suffered with health problems from an early age which led to his untimely death in 1983.

Last year marked the 30th anniversary of his death, but his name and music continue to live on.

The Billy Fury Years is coming to the Weston venue, in High Street, for one night.

Michael King and his fantastic collection of musicians will perform all the singers best-loved hits from his musical career.

The exciting two-hour show is delivered in true Fury style and features fantastic audio and video effects plus various costume changes depicting the ever-changing image and face of the rock ‘n’ roll legend.

Commenting on the show, Lee Wilkinson from The Stage writes: “The songs span Fury’s entire career from his initial record release, Maybe Tomorrow, through to his final one, Forget Him – which, thanks to this thoughtful and welcome tribute show, his legion of fans never will.”
