Peter Thomson… Interesting (for me) to see Helen Shapiro’s tour dates, which include my current home town of Peterborough. A year later she was on a similar tour, when she again appeared at The Embassy theatre here, supported by The Beatles. This was the first of their two appearances in the city, the second as headliners, and older locals still reminisce fondly of those days. The Embassy still stands, by the way.
Alan Esdaile… Helen Shapiro was at the ABC Cinema Hastings on the 28th November 1962 and Cliff and The Shadows were back again on 27th March 1963.
Janet Brophy… Saw Them, Good Old Cliff & The Shadows
Mark Randall… Tony Orlando, later to be in Dawn ( Knock Three Times, Tie a Yellow Ribbon)
Mick O’Dowd… Billy Fury came along after.
Peter Webb… Marty Wilde.
