Tony will be at the Princess Theatre in February for an evening of Sixties classics performed live by the Sounds of the 60s All-Star Band and Singers.

Every week, more than a million people tune in to BBC Radio 2 to hear Tony Blackburn wax lyrical about the biggest stars of the 60s – with stories and songs from this most loved decade, come along and spend the evening with Tony, as he brings Sounds Of The 60s from the studio to the stage!

The evening is on Saturday, February 2, and is actually the first night of a tour that will take Tony all over the country during the course of the year.

He said: “I can’t wait to get out on the road with some great musicians and visit some of my favourite towns and cities, spreading the great Sounds of 60s across the UK.

“Grab your tickets, come along and enjoy a terrific night with me, featuring some great stories and some great live music!”

Tony Blackburn took over presenting the much-loved Sounds of the 60s last year from Brian Matthew.

The show was pushed back to an earlier slot, 6am to 8am on Saturday mornings but has continued to be a must-listen show for fans of pop music as it used to be made.

Tony also presents his Golden Hour on BBC Radio 2 on a Friday evening.

The show on February 2, 2019 starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £38.50 each.
