An exclusive chance to re-live music from The Springfields and the hits by the band members that followed.
In the early 60s The Springfields were one of the UK’s most popular music groups. Their chart-topping hits included Silver Threads and Golden Needles, Island of Dreams and Say I Won’t Be There. In 1963 the group disbanded following their final performance on the televised Sunday Night at the London Palladium, performing to an audience of 20 million.
Dusty Springfield went on to become the bestselling female singer in the world. Her brother Tom began songwriting for other artists while bandmate Mike Hurst became a music producer, working with some of the biggest names in the industry including Cat Stevens, Showaddywaddy and Shakin’ Stevens.
Now Mike returns to the stage to present hits from the trio and the pop hits they worked on together and separately in their illustrious careers, including Preacher Man, Georgie Girl, First Cut is the Deepest, Under the Moon of Love and many more. In addition to the music Mike and his band will tell stories and anecdotes from some of the stars he’s worked with over the years.
