Gerry & The Pacemakers with Special Guests The Searchers

Its been hailed as 'The Last Great 60's Tour', UK 60's Group Gerry & The Pacemakers have announced their Farewell World Tour which starts in Australia and NZ in 2013, and they are joined by fellow UK Group The Searchers who are currently on their 50th Anniversary World Tour.

In one concert the audience will enjoy a show that includes six No. 1's and a further 8 Top 10 hits by both groups plus much more.

Gerry and the Pacemakers were a major part of what history now calls 'The 60's British Invasion' along with their friends the Beatles, with songs like How do you do it, I like it, Ferry cross the Mersey and You'll never walk alone. These simple melodies were the soundtracks to a generation and are the reason why Gerry has achieved such longevity as a popular draw-card on stages worldwide today.

The Searchers were also a major group out of Liverpool who were part of the Mersey Sound. In 1963 they quickly established their own distinctive sound and dedicated following, with a 12 string lead guitar and harmonies which anticipated the sound of The Byrds. 'Sweets For My Sweet', 'Sugar & Spice' and 'Needles & Pins' were their three number one hits, and their total world sales exceed over 30 million. The Searchers have continued to play their music throughout the world and are as popular as ever with audiences of all ages.

One show so many hits don't miss it.
