Gerry and the Pacemakers – Gerry Cross The Mersey

In the early sixties, Gerry and the Pacemakers worked the same Liverpool/Hamburg circuit as the Beatles and many other groups before being signed in 1962 by manager Brian Epstein, as his second group after the Beatles. The following year, under the direction of producer George Martin, they burst on the scene with three consecutive No.1 hits –“How Do You Do It”, “I Like It” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” – proving themselves serious competitors to the Beatles. Over the next few years, most of the Pacemakers subsequent hits were actually written by Gerry Marsden, including “”It’s All Right”, “I’m the One”, “Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Cryin’” and“Ferry Cross the Mersey”(also the name of a film in which they starred). The group disbanded in 1966 but was reformed by Gerry in 1974. They continue to tour in the UK and worldwide – “I love being on stage performing for people all over the globe”, says Gerry – and audiences continue to flock to their concerts. “Gerry Cross The Mersey” is a journey down memory lane with Gerry performing all the great songs from his repertoire. It really is a wonderful show and like Gerry himself, continues to be in great demand all over the world. Gerry will be joined by Special Guest.. Top comedy entertainer…Mike Lancaster.

Supreme Queen – Live in Concert

Supreme Queen have been paying homage to the world’s most theatrical and dramatic Rock band, Queen since 1995, and in that time have had a huge impact on audiences across the UK, Europe and Asia. Front man, Scott Maley plays a uncannily realistic ‘Freddy’ with just the right look, stage persona and, most importantly of all, the most incredibly powerful voice! Scott  is joined on stage by an enormously talented band including Nathan Mathers who brings all the electric guitar virtuosity required to play a very convincing Brian May. Their attention to detail is truly impressive and extends to their use of the exact same equipment used by Queen on stage in their heyday.
“I got the fright of my life when I saw Freddie, backstage, he looked just like the real thing. He went on stage and he gave a blistering performance winding the crowd up song by song. Nice one” Janice Long   –   BBC Radio 2
“What an outstanding reproduction of an outstanding band. They have captured the heart of one of England’s greatest bands” Birmingham  Evening  Mail
