Jerry Lee Lewis arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport to begin his first British tour, along with his new bride, 14 year old third cousin, Myra. Although advised not to mention it, Lewis answered all questions about his private life. The public’s shock over Lewis’ marriage marks the start of a controversy leading to his British tour being cancelled after just 3 of the scheduled 37 performances.
