They tour the globe as much today as they have done throughout a fantastic career spanning five decades.

The band emerged during the Merseybeat era and are said to be second only to The Beatles as Liverpool’s finest 60s group.

The band’s hits include a remake of the Drifters’ 1961 hit, “Sweets for My Sweet”, remakes of Jackie DeShannon’s “Needles and Pins” and “When You Walk In The Room” an original song written for them, “Sugar and Spice”, a cover of the Orlons’ “Don’t Throw Your Love Away” and a cover of the Clovers’ “Love Potion No 9”.

Their special ‘solo’ concert is a highly entertaining show and has been enthusiastically and warmly received throughout the world.

Combined with anecdotes and reminiscences, this fully self-contained concert includes all their famous hits, plus many album recordings, B-sides and a selection of other collector and well-known favourites.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £19.50 and are available online at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform or from the Visitor Information Centres at the Platform in Morecambe and The Storey in Lancaster. You can also buy tickets on 01524 582803.
