Following last years’ successful tour, Sixties Gold returns with an even stronger line-up of artists that, between them, scored over 50 UK Top 30 hits.
This will be Gerry and The Pacemakers’ farewell tour, so don’t miss the chance to experience this record breaking Merseybeat band. They were the second Liverpool group to chart, after The Beatles, but the first to reach No. 1 and the first act ever to top the chart with their first three singles.
Also from Liverpool, where it all started, and tipped to be as big as The Beatles, The Searchers’ first single went to No. 1 and led to five more Top 5 hits and a total of 128 weeks in the charts and sales in excess of 50 million.
Brian Poole and The Tremeloes, featuring original members Brian Poole, Chip Hawkes and Dave Munden, the band that broke the Liverpool stranglehold and went on to have 21 hits that spent over 220 weeks in the UK charts.
Steve Ellis, the original lead vocalist and founder of Love Affair who had five Top 20 singles, including their No. 1 Everlasting Love.
Finally, Vanity Fare, scored with three top 20 hits in the late sixties, including their catchy ‘Hitchin’ A Ride.
Relive the 1960s with five of the biggest chart acts of the decade.
