Six legendary pop acts from the 1960s will take to the stage at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, as part of a 50th anniversary tour.

Herman’s Hermits, The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Union Gap UK, The Ivy League, Dave Berry and Alan Mosca from Freddie and the Dreamers will turn the clock back and deliver a nostalgic night to remember on Friday, October 17 at 7.30pm.

The exclusive line-up from the ‘60s will include many of the hits that dominated the charts in a music-filled decade and brought pleasure to millions.In the mid-60s, Herman’s Hermits were a dominating force all over the world. From 1964, the band chalked up more than 23 top 20 singles and 10 hit albums. The band’s chart-breaking hits included ‘Mrs Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter’, ‘There’s a Kind of Hush’, ‘Something is Happening’ and ‘I’m into Something Good’.

Similarly, The Swinging Blue Jeans were hugely popular in the 1960s and in the years since then, the band’s hit singles including ‘Hippy Hippy Shake’, ‘You’re No Good’, ‘Good Golly Miss Molly’ and ‘Don’t Make Me Over’ have been the bedrock of memorable live performances.

Alan Lovell faithfully carries on the tradition of the band, along with Peter Oakman, and Jeff Bannister and Graham Hollingworth complete the line-up.

Dave Berry’s heart has remained in the 1960s when his top 10 singles - ‘The Crying Game’, ‘Memphis Tennessee’ and ‘Little Things’ - led to highly-successful concert appearances including gigs at the London Palladium and the Royal Albert Hall.

Alan Mosca from Freddie and the Dreamers will host the show which promises to bring the musical memories rushing back.
