Redditch Editorial 26th Nov, 2017

BACK by popular demand at the Palace Theatre – and this time for two nights – is a brand new production of The Sensational 60s Experience.

Featuring five legendary names on stage in Redditch it means fans can once again relive the sound of some of the true greats of the era, including:

Mike Pender (original voice of The Searchers) singing hits like ‘Needles and Pins’, ‘When You Walk in the Room’, ‘Sweets For My Sweet’ or ‘Sugar And Spice’.

Chris Farlowe who started out in the late 50s performing his classics like ‘Out Of Time’, ‘Handbags and Glad Rags’, ‘Let The Heartaches Begin’ and ‘Reach Out I’ll Be There’.

Also on stage will be Herman’s Hermits who throughout the mid-60s proved to be a dominating force worldwide – to date they have sold 75 million records worldwide.

Their chart breaking hits include ‘Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter’, ‘Silhouettes’, ‘There’s A Kind Of Hush’, ‘Henry VIII’, ‘Something Is Happening’ and ‘I’m Into Something Good’ plus many more.

Formed in the 1960s, The Fortunes produced classics such as, ‘You’ve Got Your Troubles’, ‘Here It Comes Again’ and continued into the 70s with more hits such including ‘Storm in a Teacup’ and ‘Freedom Come, Freedom Go’.

Indeed these songs have stood the test of time, becoming household favourites.

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’.

The gigs are on Wednesday and Thursday, November 29-30 and tickets are £31 available from the box office or on 01527 65203 or buy online at the Palace Theatre website.
