Tour name: Sixties Gold - The 50th Anniversary Tour
Featuring: Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Searchers, PJ Proby, The Fortunes, and Brian Poole and Chip Hawkes
For lovers of Sixties music this, probably never to be repeated, line-up is a genuinely exciting chance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of when it all began. Featuring record breaking Merseybeat band Gerry & The Pacemakers, the second Liverpool band to chart (after The Beatles), but the first to reach No. 1, and the first act ever to top the charts with their first three singles.
Also from Liverpool and tipped to be as big as The Beatles, The Searchers whose first single also went to No. 1 and led to five more Top 5 hits and a total of 128 weeks in the charts. Controversial, ponytailed P.J. Proby, whose trouser splitting shocked the nation, was a Melody Maker Teen Idol Award winner in 1964 and spent 91 weeks in the charts.
The Fortunes stormed the Top 10 with You’ve Got Your Troubles, Here It Comes Again, Freedom Come Freedom Go and Storm in a Teacup. And finally, original members of The Tremeloes Brian Poole and Chip Hawkes on stage together.
Price: £27.50, £29.50, £35.50
