Marty Wilde, the original British rock and roll star, is celebrating his 75th birthday year doing what he does best: 30 dates across the UK with Eden Kane, John Leyton, Nancy Ann Lee and his band of more than 50 years, The Wildcats.

‘75 years old and still going strong’, laughs Marty, ‘If anyone had told me back in ’58 when I started out that I’d still be playing shows nearly 60 years later I would have laughed… with happiness!’

The tour comes to The Kings Theatre in Southsea tomorrow, doors 7.30pm. Tickets from £23. Go to
