Mike Pender – original voice of The Searchers
New Amen Corner
with special guests The Merseybeats
It was 50 years ago, in 1963, that US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Martin Luther King delivered his ‘I have a dream’ speech, the Profumo Scandal caused resignations amongst the cabinet, the Great Train Robbery took place, the films ‘The Birds’ and ‘The Great Escape’ were released, and, Beatlemania took over. The same year, The Searchers, The Merseybeats, Dave Berry and Wayne Fontana and The Mindbenders released their debut singles. . . .
Now in its 28th year, the Solid Silver 60s Show 2013 is set to be something quite special, so come join the 50th anniversary celebrations at 42 venues across the UK kicking off at Sheffield City Hall 7th March and culminating at Norwich Theatre Royal 28th April. With Mike Pender – original voice of The Searchers, Dave Berry, Wayne Fontana, The Merseybeats and New Amen Corner, take a trip down memory lane as they celebrate 50 years in the business. Relive the golden era of music with the original hits performed by five of the most popular artists of the 60s.
Commonly referred to as a British institution, The Solid Silver 60’s Show is the original 60’s touring show. As Flying Entertainments joint managing director Derek Nicol says, “The music and songs remain timeless and perhaps that’s why the audiences still turn up today. As long as the audiences want it and the artists are able to perform, we will keep delivering. You just have to watch and listen to an audience at a SS60s show to appreciate their enjoyment and feel proud that we have delivered that enjoyment for so many years and will continue to do so.”
