Cliff Richard & The Shadows

DH and me went to see the last performance of Cliff Richard & The Shadows. It was their Final World Tour, with their last show in Johannesburg at The Dome. Wow, I was blown away, don't have words to describe how wonderful it was.

Cliff and The Shadows (Hank Marvin, Bruce Welch and Brian Bennett) dominated the British popular music scene in the late 1950s and early 1960s, enjoying both solo and joint success. Between them they achieved no less than 19 number one hits including Living Doll, Bachelor Boy, Summer Holiday, The Young Ones, Apache and Wonderful Land.

An absolutely stunning evening, well worth the wait to see them.
