IN CELEBRATION of the group’s 55th anniversary and the release of the first official new album in 30 years, The Drifters are back on tour in the UK with an exciting new show.
The ‘Sacrifice Tour’ includes 50 dates across the UK. It is the first full UK tour by the group in over six years.
They will be at the Pavilion Theatre, Rhyl, this Saturday, July 26, at 7.30pm.
As one of the biggest selling bands of all time, The Drifters have collated a huge catalogue of more than 50 hits, selling in excess of 214 million singles and 114 million albums across the world.
Since their creation, the line up of The Drifters has undergone many changes with more than 55 different singers, including icons such as Ben E King, Rudy Lewis and Charlie Thomas each of whom was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
The line up will perform timeless classics such as Saturday Night at the Movies, Under The Boardwalk, Come On Over To My Place and Kissing In The Back Row of the Movies.
The show also features a whole host of new material from the new album to be released in the Autumn entitled Five Decades and Moore named in honour of the longest serving group member, Johnny Moore, who died 10 years ago this year.
The group has also recorded their own version of Elton John’s hit anthem Sacrifice, which will be released as a charity single in the Autumn in aid of Princess Diana’s HIV+/AIDS charity Mildmay.
