Royal Hall -
Saturday 14th December
The '60s group Manfred Mann is now considered, more than ever, one of the finest and most respected bands from that era. Their numerous hits were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz - a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance.
As a result, their records have a timeless quality and, some 55 years on, The Manfreds, with BOTH original front men, Paul Jones & Mike d’Abo, along with original members Tom McGuinness and Mike Hugg, will be performing most of their hits, including ‘Do Wah Diddy Diddy’, ‘Pretty Flamingo’, ‘Mighty Quinn’ and the ever popular ‘Handbags & Gladrags’ written by Mike d’Abo himself.
Along with their very special guest, Georgie Fame, they will also include a mix of their favourite Jazz and Blues covers, as well as Georgie’s number one hits ‘Yeh Yeh’, ‘Get Away’ and 'The Ballad Of Bonnie And Clyde'
