3:26pm Monday 17th March 2014 in Local
IT'S not just a 'Storm in a Teacup', The Fortunes are back to enjoy 'Seasons in the Sun' in Bromsgrove this spring.
The Fortunes, an English harmony beat group from Birmingham, hit the big time in 1965, when 'You've Got Your Troubles' broke into the charts both here and in the US.
A string of hits, including 'Here It Comes Again' and 'Freedom Come, Freedom Go', followed and now the band is presenting a brand new show, The Fortunes - Past & Present, that will take place at the Artrix.
The intimate performance will include not only all the bands fabulous hits, but many others drawn from their times in other bands such as Marmalade, Billy J Kramer’s Dakotas, Del Shannon, Bobby Vee and Love Affair.
As well as the music, untold anecdotes and stories drawn from the group's many experiences over the years will be told, as well as a moving tribute to former band members Rod Allen and Barry Pritchard made.
The show takes place on Saturday, March 22 at 7.30pm and costs £15.
