Enjoy classic Shadows hits at Thornton Little Theatre

Thornton Little Theatre is hosting a unique tribute to the sounds of the Shadows, as Into The Shadows play for one night only on Saturday 16 April.

Come along and enjoy authentic recreations of their famous hits including Wonderful Land, Guitar Tango, Frightened City, Dance On, FBI, Atlantis, Man of Mystery and of course their first number one hit Apache, still recognized as one of the most iconic records of all time.

In this year's show, there are many new numbers, including Let Me Be The One, the UK entry performed by The Shadows at the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest, and Don't Cry For Me Argentina.

Lead guitarist Rob Fellows recreates the unique Hank Marvin sound so well you will think you are hearing the real thing while fellow guitarist John's Haden confident rhythm style compliments Rob's lead parts together with his Cliff Richard songs. Bass guitar maestro John Haden matches his stylish playing with an ever present smile and a sharp ear and Colin Evans bring years of experience as a top drummer, seeking perfection in his style of playing. His attention to detail and total professionalism always shine out.

Speaking of the tour, Colin comments, “We’re really excited to be coming to Lancashire, and Thornton Little Theatre. On this tour we are playing lots of venues that we haven’t been to before all over the country. It’s our first visit to Thornton and we can’t wait to play to a new audience. We have fans who come to see us time and time again and I’m sure there’ll be some familiar faces on the night, but it’s great for us to meet new people.”
