The Ultimate Rhythm & Blues 50th Anniversary Tour


The Ultimate Rhythm and Blues 50th Anniversary Tour brings together a one time line up of British Invasion rock royalty! The Zombies, The Animals, The Yardbirds, Spencer Davis and Maggie Bell clock up an amazing 37 hit records between them and can boast over 300 weeks in the charts! Heading to Plymouth Pavilions in the New Year, the show is set for Friday 21 February 2014.

The Zombies, led by Rod Argent on piano and Colin Blunstone on vocals, scored US hits in the mid and late 1960s with ‘She’s Not There’, ‘Tell Her No’, and ‘Time of the Season’. Their 1968 album ‘Odessey and Oracle’ is ranked 80 on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Albums of all Time!

The Animals are exemplified by their signature song and transatlantic No.1 hit single, ‘The House of the Rising Sun’, as well as by hits such as ‘We Gotta Get out of This Place’, ‘It's My Life’, and ‘Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood’. The band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material and were known in the US as part of the British Invasion, alongside the likes of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Graduating three of the great PhDs of rock guitar; Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, The Yardbirds were the bridge between the tributary white R&B of early 1960s London, and the pastures of the fuzz-toned psychedelia and power-chorded heavy metal much later in the decade and throughout the 1970s. The line-up on this tour sees founding member Chris Dreja replaced by Top Topham due to health issues.

Completing the line-up are Spencer Davis and Maggie Bell, so come along for an unforgettable night celebrating 50 years of hits with the artists that shaped music for generations to come!
