Sixties Legends Reunite in Medway

Date: 10/06/2008           Category: Arts and Libraries

Some of the best-known performers from the sixties will be united on stage at The Central Theatre in Chatham this month. P J Proby, Chris Farlowe, Brian Poole, Vanity Fare and Mike Pender are all on the bill in Oh Boy! It’s the Non-Stop Sixties, currently on its UK wide tour. The big voiced P.J, Proby earned worldwide success for his energetic live shows (and a headline grabbing trouser-splitting scandal), and scored a string of hits including ‘Somewhere’, ‘Maria’ and ‘Hold Me’. Chris Farlowe hit the big time in the summer of 66, with the now iconic single ‘Out of Time’, and by the end of the decade he scored a hit with ‘Handbags & Gladrags’, later reworked by both Rod Stewart and The Stereophonics. As The Tremeloes’ front man, Brian Poole claimed eleven top-10 hits including the number one smash ‘Do You Love Me’. Originally founded in Medway, Vanity Fare’s international hits included ‘Hitchin’ a Ride’ and ‘Early in the Morning’, both selling over a million copies each worldwide and earning them two gold discs. Searchers lead singer Mike Pender completes the line-up, making this a very rare opportunity to see and hear, live on stage, some of the finest stars of the 60s. Oh Boy! It’s the Non-stop Sixties comes to The Central Theatre on Friday, 27 June at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £16.50 and £15 and are available from the Box Office on 01634 338338 or online at www.medway.gov.uk/theatrebooking For further information contact Lisa Caleno on 01634 338308 or email lisa.caleno@medway.gov.uk
