Marty Wilde MBE (otherwise known as Reg Smith) was a huge pop star in the 1950s and 60s with massive hits including Rubber Ball and Teenager In Love. His first chart hit, which reached number four in 1958, was Endless Sleep. Incredibly, Marty is still touring the nation’s concert halls and getting a great reaction from audiences up and down the country.
His show, Born To Rock ‘n’ Roll, 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 somewhat of a cult status and is one not to be missed.
