All time great British band The Manfreds head out on tour this Autumn playing 34 shows across the UK including a stop at Aberdeen’s Music Hall.
Original Manfred Mann members Paul Jones, Mike Hugg and Tom McGuinness plus Rob Townsend, Marcus Cliffe and Simon Currie are joined by former member Mike d’Abo for what promises to be a terrific occasion.
And for this tour it’s not just the one but both of the original singers live on stage – Paul Jones and Mike D’Abo.
The seven strong Manfreds have had more hits amongst their respective players than almost any other band, firmly securing their place in the annals of British music.
The successes came not just as Manfred Mann – though they clocked up an impressive 17 hits with 14 Top 10s including three No 1s – but also as solo artists and in subsequent groups.
Manfred Mann formed in 1962 and scored their first UK Top 10 two years later with 5-4-3-2-1 which became the signature tune for the popular music TV show Ready Steady Go.
Further hits followed with Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Sha La La and Pretty Flamingo.
When Paul Jones left to pursue a solo career in 1966 he was replaced by Mike d’Abo and the group went on to score some of their biggest European hits.
Disbanding in 1969, Manfred Mann reformed as The Manfreds in 1991.
Since that reunion tour The Manfreds have been in huge demand.
This year sees them celebrating their remarkable longevity with a major tour across the country.
It sees the stellar line-up playing all the hits and more.
The Manfreds will play at Aberdeen’s Music Hall on Wednesday, October 22.
