A music fan got to see a rocker return to Morecambe for the first time in 55 years after all.

In last week’s Visitor we told how Mike Berry was unable to get a ticket to see American rockabilly star Charlie Gracie at the Midland.

Mike had been to Charlie’s one and only previous gig in Morecambe in 1958.

But on the day of the show, Mike was delighted to discover the Midland had added in extra seats.

Not only did Mike see the performance, he even got to meet Charlie, now 77.

Gracie was supported by The Paul Hayes Collection and Some Like It Hot.

Mike also thanked Sheila Waldie, who offered him her ticket after seeing our story in The Visitor last week.
