Sixties classics to rock Embassy gig

FANS of classic hits from the 1960s are set for a treat this weekend when ‘The Bootleg Sixties’ hits the stage in Skegness.

The Overtures will perform the concert in the Embassy Theatre on Sunday evening (February 27), and organisers promise a night of “unforgettable songs” from pop music’s “greatest decade”.

“The Sixties were without doubt the most dynamic and innovative of decades, and their impact upon society is still being felt throughout the world even now,” said a spokesperson.

“The huge changes in music, fashion and culture which the Sixties brought about have left an indelible mark on the world, one which will probably never be equalled.

“Many of the creators and innovators of the Sixties were, of course, British, a fact of which we can all be proud, so in recognition of such everlasting achievements, The Overtures have devised a special concert, suitably titled “The Bootleg Sixties.”

“This fully self-contained two- hour plus show is packed with great music from all the classic artists of the decade, and is back-dropped by fantastic visual footage, including archive material from each town and city hosting the show.

“Add in some guest appearances, some fab ‘60s costumes and, of course, The Overtures’ own inimitable performance, and you’ve got a show which is sure to delight audiences of all ages.

“Let yourself be taken on an unforgettable journey with the songs, stars and images of pop music’s greatest decade,” added the spokesperson. The concert gets underway on Sunday at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £16.50p for adults, £15.50p for over 60s, and £8.25p for children. Call the box office on 0845 674 0505.
