Fans of Billy Fury have the chance to hear his music again in a show to be held at the Barnfield Theatre.
The legend and the passion for the music of Billy Fury lives on with this exciting two hour show filled with Billy Fury’s greatest hits delivered live in true Fury style.
The whole show is further enhanced by fantastic audio and video effects plus various costume changes depicting the ever-changing image and face of the Fury phenomenon.
Hailed as “the best Fury since Fury”, Michael King and his fantastic collection of musicians take you on a journey through the musical career of one of Britain’s best loved rock ‘n’ rollers, Billy Fury.
In the 60s, Billy Fury had more Decca hits than any other artist including the Rolling Stones.
He equalled The Beatles’ record of 24 hits and spent a total of 332 weeks in the UK charts.
He was one of the top three biggest selling individual artists of the 60s and widely regarded by many as the foremost rock ‘n’ roller the UK has ever produced.
Such is his popularity that in 2007 a bronze statue of Billy was unveiled at the Liverpool Albert Dock.
More recently in 2011, ‘Billy Fury Way’ was opened in London.
The show is set to take place at the Barnfield Theatre, in Exeter, on Wednesday, July 25, at 7.30pm.
Tickets are available from the box office on 01392 270891, with tickets costing £15.
