Halfway To Paradise: The Billy Fury Story

Colin Gold stars in this emotional celebration of Britain's own Elvis featuring most of his 29 hits, backed by Billy's own band.

A shy young 19 year old Liverpudlian songwriter called Ronnie Wycherley was discovered by legendary rock impresario Larry Parnes who re-christened him Billy Fury and promoted him as Britain’s own Elvis. In February 1959 he entered the UK Top 20 with his own composition Maybe Tomorrow, the first of an unbelievable 29 hit records including Colette, Half Way To Paradise, Jealousy, I’d Never Find Another You, Like I’ve Never Been Gone, Once Upon a Dream, Last Night Was Made For Love, When Will You Say I Love You? and In Summer.

He went on to sell more records for Decca than any other artist, including the Rolling Stones scoring more hit singles in the 60's than the Beatles - who once failed an audition as his backing band! This would all have been a fairytale had it not been for the rheumatic fever and related heart problems that were to follow him throughout his life and ultimately claim him tragically early in 1983, aged just 42.

The sensational Colin Gold stars as Fury in this electric and emotional celebration and he’s backed by Fury’s Tornados, Billy’s own 1970’s live band.
