Music’s greatest decade will be celebrated with a one-night show at the Grand Theatre this weekend.

Bootleg Sixties features the Overtures - hailed by Sir Elton John as ‘the best band of their kind in the world’.

The show uses classic fashion, newsreel and iconic video footage of the period, alongside hits from the likes of The Kinks, The Doors, Simon & Garfunkel, The Hollies, The Beach Boys, The Monkees, The Byrds, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Yardbirds, The Animals and many more in the two-hour show.

A spokesman said: “The appeal of the Sixties remains as strong today as it has throughout the preceding decades.

“Dynamic and innovative, the Sixties heralded a shift in society that changed our world forever and Britain was at the forefront.

“The impact upon society is still being felt throughout the world even now, the huge changes in music, fashion and popular culture brought about in the Sixties have left an indelible mark on the world, one which will probably never be equalled.

“Remember the most important decade in living history as it was or discover it for the first time.

“A show for everyone.”
