Preview: Come on over for Drifters classics

Their name has been synonymous with unforgettable chart-topping tunes for more than 60 years. Now you can make a date with the current line up of The Drifters at the Grand Theatre on Sunday, June 8 at 7.30pm.

The R&B four-piece will be performing for one night only in their most spectacular live show to date as part of The Optimum Tour, featuring the honey-voiced talents of current line-up Pierre Herelle, Michael Williams, Ryan King and Carlton Powell.

Founded in 1953, The Drifters brand has seen massive chart success across the world with over 114 million album sales and 214 million single sales with a vast catalogue of hits. With over 65 members in the 60 years, The Drifters have gone from strength to strength, performing live around the world, releasing smash hit records and even introducing a schools workshop programme.

Last year’s 60th Anniversary Diamond Dynasty World Tour proved a big hit with fans around the world.  Now they’re back again in a fast-moving and exhilarating new production, which showcases the very best of their historical legacy along with exciting events, people and culture from right through the six decades of the musical dynasty plus new recordings first released late last year.

Enjoy the signature, smooth sound of fantastic, four-part vocal harmonies at their very best with unforgettable, toe-tapping tunes such as Under The Boardwalk, Saturday Night At The Movies, Up On The Roof, Kissin In The Back Row, Come On Over To My Place, More Than A Number In My Little Red Book, The One, Think Twice and many more from The Drifters’ vast back catalogue.

Tickets are £26.50. Call the Box Office on (01253) 290190 or visit the website.
