After last performing in the town in 2015, The Drifters are back, performing at the Pavilion Theatre next November.
The legendary group have previously been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, listed among the greatest artists of all time by Rolling Stone magazine and have produced an incredible list of hits – including Saturday Night at the Movies.
Tina Treadwell, president of the Treadwell Entertainment Group and owner of The Drifters name, was responsible for picking the line up.
Tina’s father started the group with Clyde McPhatter and brought in several greats thereafter such as Johnny Moore and Ben E King. Her mother Faye was later responsible for bringing the group to the UK and overseeing hits such as More than a number and Kissin’ in the back row.
After the passing of her parents, it was down to Tina to continue the legacy of The Drifters name. Now, following the group’s 65th anniversary year in which Tina announced a brand-new show with over 60 UK tour dates, the band are continuing to add further 2020 UK tour dates due to phenomenal demand.
Tina, who previously worked for Disney as an executive producer and casting director, believes this current line-up is one of the best to date and looks forward to the upcoming concert tour. “I am very excited that following our 65th anniversary year we have a new show for the fans who we invite to join us in celebrating this incredible and everlasting story of The Drifters.”
