Here’s a brand new production for 2015 which promoters say is “without doubt the most dynamic 60s show touring the UK”.

And for one night only on October 12 at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, five of the most popular artists of this era will belt out a string of unforgettable hits that helped transform the world of pop - and here’s the line-up and their big hits.

Herman’s Hermits throughout the mid-60s music scene proved to be a dominating force worldwide. From 1964 the band chalked up over 23 top 20 singles, 10 hit albums and three major movies. Their hits include Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, There’s A Kind Of Hush, Henry V111, Something Is Happening and I’m Into Something Good, plus many more too numerous to mention.

Originally Chris Farlowe and The Thunderbirds started out in the late 50s. Chris later moved on to perform all over Europe and still does to this day. His hits include classics like Out Of Time, Handbags And Gladrags, Moanin’, Mr Pitiful and Midnight Hour.

Steve Ellis with Love Affair stormed the charts with Everlasting Love. At the time Steve was only 17 but with his distinctive voice he and the band notched up further hits like Rainbow Valley, Bringing On Back The Good Times and A Day Without Love.

The Union Gapuk will perform classics like Young Girl which hit number one in the UK and reached number two in the USA. Next came Lady Willpower which reached five in the UK and two in the USA.

The New Amen Corner, a force to be reckoned with on any stage throughout Europe, will keep you entertained with classics such as If Paradise Is Half As Nice and Bend Me Shape Me.
