AS part of The Searchers’ tour, the band will be stopping by to play at the Palace Theatre in Redditch.

One of the few remaining touring bands that emerged from the heady days of the early 60s, The Searchers are in as much demand today as they have been throughout their 40-year career. The tour will see the band travel to Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Germany, Holland and Scandinavia as well as the UK.

With such classic hits as Sweets For My Sweet, Needles and Pins, Don’t Throw Your Love Away and When You Walk In The Room, The Searchers have contributed enormously to the British music industry, with record sales well in excess of £40 million.

2008 saw a welcome return to the UK charts with the release of The Very Best of The Searchers, a compilation of 25 their hits and best original recordings. They will be at the Palace on Friday, September 18.
