Original Merseybeats to play at the town hall this Friday

* Tony Crane MBE and the original Merseybeats playing at their spiritual home of The Cavern in Liverpool where they performed with The Beatles.

Chart-topping Merseyside band The Merseybeats, who had a string of hits in the 1960s including I Love You, Yes I Do, Wishin’ and Hopin’ and Sorrow, will be performing at Llangollen Town Hall this Friday (March 15).   

The Merseybeats emerged from the Liverpool Mersey Beat scene in the early 1960s, performing at The Cavern Club along with the Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers and a host of other great Mersey Beat bands. 

In their heyday, The Merseybeats performed regularly at the Cavern and appeared there with the Beatles on more occasions than any other band.  

They will be supported at the Town Hall by popular local artist Luke Gallagher,  who has backed up 60s legends The Animals, amongst others. 

This is the latest Live at Llangollen Town Hall gig organised by the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod for their charity.  

The charity helps pay for their international competitors, over 2,000 of whom are expected to head for Llangollen this summer to join the core Eisteddfod programme.

Barrie Roberts, from the festival. said: "With less than 100 days until we start welcoming the likes of Bryan Adams, Simple Minds and Nile Rodgers & Chic to Llangollen - it's great to be bringing another legendary band to town this Friday.  

"This is the latest event as we bring Llangollen together for another unforgettable night.  

"The Merseybeats had fans from The Beatles, Burt Bacharach to David Bowie, who charted with one of their songs.  

"People have been in touch to ask if we've really booked the original Merseybeats. The answer is yes.  

"Llangollen regularly welcomes tourists from across Merseyside and that's why we are so pleased to welcome the likes of Tony Crane MBE and the lads, for an evening of 60s nostalgia at its original and best."
