Thursday 15 January 2009

Time: 7.30pm to 9.30pm

Location: Civic Theatre, Rotorua

The distinctive jangling sound of the twelve string guitar and the rich harmonies embellishing their immaculate vocals have without doubt assured The Searchers of a lasting place the history of popular music throughout the world.

Direct from Liverpool, UK, original members John McNally and Frank Allen are joined by guitarist and singer Spencer James and drummer Eddie Rothe for a great show of classic rock right here in Rotorua at the Civic Theatre on the 15th of January 2009.

You must remember the hits like “Sweets for my Sweet”, “Needles and Pins”, “Love Potion No. 9”, “Sugar ‘n’ Spice”, “Don’t Throw Your Love Away” and “Someday We’re Gonna Love Again”.

Finding their standard set a trifle too constricting and perhaps even a little unsatisfying to their hard core fans who have always known there is more to their favourite group than merely a bunch of hit records, they have over the last decade perfected a two-part concert consisting of their legendary hits, ‘B’ sides, favourite album tracks and a whole bunch of terrific new material they have collected along the way. Combined with anecdotes and reminiscences delivered in an intimate and personal way that is unique to the Searchers these shows have proved to be a triumph in musical entertainment and regularly pack theatres both at home and abroad.

In more recent times the group was awarded a silver-disc by Universal records for their latest greatest hits album released in May 2008 which reached No.11 on the UK compilation charts.

Not only are The Searchers playing, but local up and coming band Deadly Alliance will be hitting the stage too to get you in the mood.

So don’t hesitate, either as a sweet present for your sweet for Christmas or a bit of sugar ‘n’ spice for the New Year, you’re going to love The Searchers again!

“When you go to see The Searchers you know you are in for a great evening with fantastic pop rock music” – Sir Cliff Richard
