It will be on stage in March.
Featuring hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s, musical show That’ll Be The Day will be performed in Dartford next month.
The variety show, which features both music and comedy, is now in its 30th year of touring.
Trevor Payne first created the show in 1987 and he has continued to direct, produce and star in the production - taking on roles such as Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger and performing as many as 230 shows a year.
Mr Payne re-writes the show for each new tour, spending some six months preparing the latest production before the tour begins.
“It’s always a challenge to change the show every year but it’s been one of the main reasons for That’ll Be The Day’s success,” he said.
“Change is good, how else could we have progressed? As for retirement I’m not considering it.
“I remember meeting the great Bobby Charlton in Malta, we were having a chat after playing tennis and he said his one regret was retiring too early.
“He said being a manager was the next best thing but nothing gives you the thrill of playing. I won’t make that mistake.”
The show supports a number of charitable causes, including military charity Help For Heroes and Make-A-Wish, which grants wishes to children and young people who are fighting life-threatening conditions.
Mr Payne added: “We are truly delighted to be supporting Make-A-Wish.
“The tireless work they do with children across the UK is inspirational and we look forward to a long and fruitful association with this amazing charity.”
That’ll Be The Day will be performed at the Orchard Theatre on March 22.
It will be starting at 7.30pm and tickets are £26.
