Ultimate 60s line-up comes to Ipswich


For lovers of Sixties music, this is the ultimate, and probably never to be repeated, line-up that plays its only East Anglia show at The Ipswich Regent on Sunday 25th September.

From Liverpool, where it all started, and tipped to be as big as The Beatles, The Searchers’ first single, Sweets For My Sweet, went to No. 1 and led to five more Top 5 hits including Sugar And Spice and Needles And Pins and a total of 128 weeks in the charts.

Brian Poole & The Tremeloes, the band that broke the Liverpool stranglehold and went on to have 21 hits including Twist And Shout, Do You Love Me, Silence Is Golden, and Even The Bad Times Are Good that spent over 220 weeks in the UK charts.

Controversial, ponytailed P.J. Proby, whose trouser splitting shocked the nation and led to him being banned by most theatres at the time, was a Melody Maker teen idol award winner in 1964 and spent 91 weeks in the charts with hits such as Hold Me, Somewhere and Maria.

Wayne Fontana, originally from Manchester, spent over 75 weeks in the British charts with hits such as “Game Of Love”, “Um Um Um Um Um” and “ Pamela Pamela”.

Special Guest and direct from America, Gary Puckett & Union Gap whose first single “Young Girl” was also a UK No. 1.
Sixties Gold sold out when it last came to The Regent in 2013 so demand for tickets is expected to be high and early booking by telephoning the Box Office on 01473 433 100 could be a good idea.
