Tony Christie plays Lichfield to mark 50 years in showbusiness

Tony Christie has marked 50 years in showbusiness with a concert in his home city of Lichfield.

The singer is best known for his hit Is This The Way To Amarillo, which was given a second lease of life by the comedian Peter Kay.

Mr Christie said a 50-year career was "far beyond my wildest expectations".

"I get more nervous playing to a home crowd than I do playing in a strange town, because I know a lot of the people," he added.
