Searchers in 50th anniversary gig in Skegness

The Searchers are set to bring their big hits to Skegness tomorrow (Thursday) as part of their 50th anniversary tour.

The band behind such classic hits as ‘Sweets for My Sweet’, ‘Needles and Pins’, and ‘When You Walk in the Room’ will take to the stage in the Embassy Theatre at 7.30pm.

A spokesperson said: “Now celebrating their 50th anniversary, The Searchers’ remarkable career continues.

“There is no doubt that the decade that gave us The Beatles as well as The Searchers and many others was very special and will go down in history as being the most imaginative period of music creativity and expression.

“The Searchers, with total record sales well in excess of 40 million, still have great appeal to audiences of all ages.

“They tour the globe as much today as they have done throughout a fantastic career spanning five decades.

“Their special ‘solo’ concert is a highly entertaining show and has been enthusiastically and warmly received throughout the world.

“Combined with anecdotes and reminiscences, this fully self-contained concert includes all their famous hits, plus many album recordings, B-sides and a selection of other collector and well known favourites.

“Don’t miss The Searchers live in concert,” the spokesperson added.

Tickets cost £20 for adults, £19 for over 60s and £7.50 for children.
