A tour featuring some of the biggest names in sixties music will be coming to Sunderland in the spring.

The Solid Silver 60s Tour has been taking the stars of that decade around the country for an astonishing 34 years, selling over a million tickets for over 1,500 shows. But next year’s tour might be the last one ever.

The 2019 tour – which will be visiting Sunderland’s Empire Theatre on Sunday March 31st – will feature Peter Noone, Brian Poole, Dave Berry and Vanity Fare.

Peter Noone shot to fame as the lead singer of Herman’s Hermits. The Hermits had a number of smash hits including I’m into Something Good, No Milk Today, Kind of Hush and My Sentimental Friend.

Peter has also enjoyed solo chart success – including his version of David Bowie’s Oh, You Pretty Things, which featured Bowie himself on piano. Over the decades, Peter has toured countless times to great acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.

As the lead singer of The Tremeloes, Brian Poole has also enjoyed his fair share of hits, including the million-selling Twist and Shout, Do You Love Me?, Candy Man and Someone Someone.

Teen-idol Dave Berry became famous for his unique performances, which always began with him appearing to the audience from behind a prop. His hits include Memphis, Tennessee, This Strange Effect and The Crying Game, which was voted by Time Out magazine as one of the fifty saddest songs of all time.

Vanity Fare were chart regulars in the early 1970s, enjoying hits such as the million-selling Hitchin’ a Ride and the top-ten tune Early in the Morning.

The Solid Silver 60s Tour will play the Sunderland Empire Theatre on Sunday March 31st at 7.30 pm. To book tickets, please go to www.flyingmusic.com/solid-silver-60s-show.
