LEGENDARY group The Drifters are bringing a brand-new show to Dudley this month and are set to perform all their classic hits from the last six decades.

More than 60 dates have been announced for the band’s 2018 UK tour, including a one-night only stay at Dudley Town Hall on Friday, May 25.

Having previously been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the group have been listed among the greatest artists of all time by Rolling Stone magazine, producing an incredible list of hits, including Saturday Night At Movies, Come on Over to My Place, Stand By Me, Under the Boardwalk and many more.

Now in their 65th Anniversary year, The Drifters are back on the road with a line up hand-picked by Tina Treadwell herself – President of the Treadwell Entertainment Group and owner of The Drifters name.

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.

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.

She said: “I am very excited that now in 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.”
