Gerry Cross The Mersey brings Gerry of The Pacemakers fame to Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill on Saturday, April 27 at 8pm (01444 242888)
In the early 60s Gerry & The Pacemakers worked the same Liverpool/Hamburg circuit as The Beatles before being signed in 1962 by manager Brian Epstein.
The following year, under the direction of producer George Martin, they burst onto the 60s scene with three consecutive number one hits, How Do You Do It, I Like It and the epic You’ll Never Walk Along.
After disbanding in 1966, Gerry reformed The Pacemakers in 1974 after eight years as a solo artist, touring the world. Another grand tour took place in 1993 to mark 30 years of Gerry & The Pacemakers.
Today, Gerry and the band continue to do what they love – perform.
Their current UK tour brings them to Martlets Hall where Gerry will talk about those heady days of the 60s and also perform the hits.
