THE amazing Marty Wilde – complete with The Wildcats – is to play the Palace Theatre on Friday, September 6.
It’s a chance to see live on stage one of the few pioneers of Rock’n’Roll still performing in the world today.
Marty Wilde was ‘discovered’ in 1957 at the tender age of 17 and went on to blaze a trail with the likes of Billy Fury, Cliff Richard and Tommy Steele, playing a leading part in those early formative and ground-breaking years.
By the Sixties he was writing songs for other artists including Status Quo and Lulu.
The yearning for nostalgia soon got Marty back on the stage again and he’s been touring on and off ever since.
In 2017 he was made an MBE receiving his medal from the Queen herself for services to music.
With hits like ‘A Teenager in Love’ and ‘Sea of Love’ the concert offers a fabulous chance for audiences to be transported back to the very start of rock n roll in Britain.
It’s curtain up at 7.30pm and tickets are available now in person or at the box office on 01527 65203 priced at £23.50 or buy online at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk.
