The Solid Gold Hits Tour
The Searchers are returning to Australia!
05 Mar – 05 Mar
The Searchers emerged as part of the 1960's MerseyBeat scene along with The Beatles, The Hollies, The Swinging Blues Jeans and Gerry and The Pacemakers. As one of Britain's best-loved groups their distinctive jangling sound of the twelve-string guitar and rich harmonies embellished with their immaculate vocals have without doubt assured The Searchers of a lasting place in the history of popular music throughout the world. The Searchers are returning to Australia in their The Solid Gold Hits Tour by popular demand, proudly presented by ATA Allstar Artists.
From their early beginnings in the late 1950's as a skiffle group formed by John McNally and a bunch of friends, through the heady days of the 1960's as teenage idols The Searchers have comfortably settled into a position well-deserved by a band whose sound has influenced some of the most artists of our generation. The hit songs were "Sweets For My Sweet", "Sugar And Spice", "Needles And Pins" - the Jackie De Shannon remake, "When You Walk In The Room", "Love Potion Number 9", a cover if The Orion's "Don't Throw Your Love Away", "Someday We're Gonna Love Again".....the list goes on. The Searchers have enormously to the British music industry, with record sales in excess of 45-million and were the second group from Liverpool, after The Beatles, to have a hit in the U.S when "Needles And Pins" charted.
