A tribute band, recreating the music of The Shadows is coming to Thornton Little Theatre.

Into The Shadows played at the venue last year and will be returning once again on Saturday, May 13.

They will recreate such classic Shadows hits as Wonderful Land, Man of Mystery and number one single Apache.

Also, new songs for this year include Let Me Be the One, the UK entry performed by The Shadows at the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest, and Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.

The band consists of Rob Fellows (lead guitar), John Haden (rhythm guitar), Mike Steed (bass guitar) and Colin Evans (drums).

The Shadows rocketed to fame in the late 50s, first as Cliff Richard’s backing band before branching out on their own led by guitarist Hank Marvin.

John Haden said: “We are so looking forward to returning to play at Thornton Little Theatre.

“It really is a hidden gem amongst theatres.

“Into the Shadows played for the first time in 2016 at Thornton and what a night we had.

“It was a virtual sell out and the audience were so responsive and appreciative.

“We can’t wait to return.

Tickets are priced at £13.
