Dreamboats & Petticoats
1950s heartthrob Marty Wilde takes to the road again in Dreamboats & Petticoats - Music That Lives Forever!
Joining Marty are pals Eden Kane and Mark Wynter with special guest Roxy Wilde and his long serving band, The Wildcats. The late fifties and early sixties were without doubt some of the most exciting and important years in the history of music. With the arrival of rock n’ roll, a whole new pop culture was born. Performing their own hits and collaborating live on stage, Marty, Eden and Mark, the original teen idols, show us how rock n’ roll with its fusion of sound and rhythm shaped the style of music that we listened to then and still do today.
Reg Smith (aka Marty Wilde) was a massive pop star in the '50s and '60s with a plethora of hits including Rubber Ball and Teenager In Love. Marty is still touring the nation's concert halls and getting a great reaction from audiences up and down the country. His own show, 'Born to Rock 'n' Roll', in which he performs with his Wildcats, has received wonderful critical acclaim and has not only attracted his original fans but a whole host of new ones, who are just discovering the man and his individual brand of rock 'n' roll. The show has acquired a cult status and is definitely one not to be missed.
