Seven legendary names will be taking to the stage for The Sensational 60s Experience which heads to Northampton on Friday.

Hosted by Alan Mosca from Freddie and The Dreamers, the show stars Herman’s Hermits, Chris Farlowe, The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Fortunes, The Ivy League and The New Amen Corner.

Herman’s Hermits proved a dominating force world-wide throughout the mid-1960s music scene, releasing 23 top 20 singles.

The concert will include their classic tracks including I’m into Something Good, No Milk Today, I’m Henry The 8th and Silhouettes.

Having started out in the late 1950s with The Thunderbirds, Chris Farlowe continues to perform all over Europe, with hits including Handbags and Gladrags and Out of Time.

The Swinging Blue Jeans have been led by Alan Lovell since the 1960s and will be revisiting their well-loved hit songs such as Hippy Hippy Shake, You’re No Good and Don’t Make Me Over.

The Fortunes remain as one of the UK’s premier harmony groups, and are constantly in demand worldwide, for their classic tracks such as You’ve Got Your Troubles, Here it Comes Again and Storm in a Tea Cup.

The Ivy League will be performing their feel-good hits such as Funny How Love Can Be, Tossing and Turning and That’s Why I’m Crying.

Completing the line up, The New Amen Corner will entertain with classics such as If Paradise is Half as Nice and Bend Me Shape Me, taking audiences back to the time when pop music was at its very best.

The Sensational ‘60s Experience is at Royal & Derngate stage on Friday, March 24, at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £29 before fees and can be booked by calling the box office on 01604 624811 or ordered online.
