If you're old enough to remember when Jerry Lee Lewis was on the road, he went to England for some shows. Unfortunately for him, he took his child bride with him. This child bride also happened to be his cousin that he had married, and the English were not as forgiving as us Americans and "kindly" asked him to leave the country, show or no show. But as you also know in show business, the saying is, no matter what, "the show must go on". So, just because the headliner was no longer connected with the show THE TRENIER'S still finished what they went over there to do. I believe Wynonie Harris joined them to finish the shows. Well below is the poster that was supposed to be for the show that was supposed to happen.
