The Fortunes – Past and Present

Friday, 1st May, 2015 - 8:00 pm

Tickets: Adults £16.00 / Friends £15.50 / Students, Children, ES40s £8.00

The Fortunes celebrate 51 years in show business with their fabulous 2015 ‘Past and Present’ show.

New songs – new stories – new anecdotes all brought together with narration and projection from the era.

The Fortunes and ‘Brum Beat’ followed hard on the heels of Mersey Beat and the sounds coming from Capital City, with groups like the Rolling Stones, The Beatles and the Kinks hitting the pop charts, but The Fortunes had something special with lush harmonies and counter melodies which made their hits instantly recognisable.

‘Past and Present’ is a two hour show full of hits, stories and fun. It’s a “Must See” show! So put on your dancing shoes and dance your way down memory lane with The Fortunes.

A hit Band of the 60s and 70s, The Fortunes achieved worldwide success with songs such as You’ve Got Your Troubles; Here It Comes Again; Storm in a Teacup; Here Comes that Rainy Day
Feeling Again; Seasons in the Sun and Freedom Come Freedom Go.
Untold anecdotes and stories will colour the show, including The Badfinger Story – experiences with a brilliant, but ill-fated band! Songs will also be drawn from times with other bands, such as Marmalade, Billy J Kramer’s Dakotas, Del Shannon, Bobby Vee and Love Affair and the show will also feature a solo performance and moving tribute to Rod Allen and Barry Pritchard.
