Drifters perform at Crewe Lyceum

The Drifters are to perform at Crewe Lyceum next month as part of a new UK tour playing classic hits from the last six decades.

Following the phenomenal success of their 65th anniversary tour in 2018, the band has added further live shows for 2019 including one night only at Crewe Lyceum Theatre on Friday August 23.

The legendary group in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame are listed among the greatest artists of all time by Rolling Stone magazine and have produced a list of hits including Saturday Night at the Movies, Come on Over to My Place, Stand By Me, Under the Boardwalk and more.

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 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.”

Tickets for the Crewe Lyceum show are available via the official tour website thedrifters.co.uk or at crewelyceum.co.uk, or call the venue box office on 01270 368 242.
