Description

In the early sixties, Gerry and the Pacemakers worked the same Liverpool/Hamburg circuit as the Beatles and many other groups before being signed in 1962 by manager Brian Epstein, as his second group after the Beatles.

The following year, under the direction of producer George Martin, they burst on the scene with three consecutive No.1 hits –“How Do You Do It”, “I Like It” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” – proving themselves serious competitors to the Beatles.

Over the next few years, most of the Pacemakers subsequent hits were actually written by Gerry Marsden, including “”It’s All Right”, “I’m the One”, “Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Cryin’” and“Ferry Cross the Mersey”(also the name of a film in which they starred).

The group disbanded in 1966 but was reformed by Gerry in 1974. They continue to tour in the UK and worldwide – “I love being on stage performing for people all over the globe”, says Gerry – and audiences continue to flock to their concerts. “Gerry Cross The Mersey” is a journey down memory lane with Gerry performing all the great songs from his repertoire.

It really is a wonderful show and like Gerry himself, continues to be in great demand all over the world. Gerry will be joined by Special Guest.. Top comedy entertainer…Mike Lancaster.
