'60s Gold Tour 2012: Gerry And The Pacemakers + PJ Proby + Len 'Chip' Hawkes + The Animals & Friends
Contemporary with - and often great rivals of - The Beatles, Gerry Marsden and the Pacemakers are still going strong and bring a breath of nostalgia for the early '60s.
The line-up consists of Gerry Marsden (guitar and vocals), Steve Thompson (lead guitar), Tony Young (keyboards), Nick Woolgar (drums) and Joe Mitchell (bass guitar).
Gerry And The Pacemakers tour dates
Big-voiced pop legend who had a string of hits during the 1960s. Born James Smith, Proby worked under the stage name Jett Powers before making it big-time as PJ Proby with a rock arrangement of the 1939 Dick Haymes ballad 'Hold Me'. Other chart successes included 'Somewhere' and 'Maria' from 'West Side Story', Lennon & McCartney's 'That Means A Lot' and the Billy Eckstine hit 'I Apologise'. Proby had earlier worked as a session singer for the likes of BB King, Little Richard, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, whom he was to play in the musical 'Elvis' in the West End in 1977. Although never far from controversy, P J Proby remains a much-loved and popular entertainer.

Chip Hawkes joined 'The Tremeloes' in 1965 as the singer / bassist. In 1974 he was signed by RCA and pursued a solo career. In 1979 he reformed The Tremeloes and toured with them until 1988. In the early 90s Chip formed his own group 'The Chip Hawkes Band', who toured all over Europe. In 2003, Chip formed 'The Class Of '64'. Chip has earned the reputation for being one of the most charismatic and exciting solo artists on the 60s and 70s circuit and he has released new CD's in 2009 and 2011.
