The Fortunes were formed in Rugby in Warwickshire in 1963 and still perform to appreciative audiences all around the world. The band scored hits with ‘You’ve Got Your Troubles’ and ‘Here It Comes Again’ and they’re also famous for their advertising work with Coca Cola, including introducing the slogan ‘it’s the real thing’.
Michael Smitham and Eddie Mooney have been with the band for nearly 50 years collectively, and Michael is now the longest serving member of the band since the passing of founding members Rod Allen and Barry Pritchard. Together the group deliver a lively and engaging show packed with catchy hit songs from the 1960s and 70s and fascinating anecdotes about their many years in the music business.
Tickets are £14 in advance or £16 on the door and the show takes place on Wednesday 27 March at 8pm. Visit theatreonthesteps.co.uk for more information.
