A galaxy of stars from the Swinging Sixties will rock into Doncaster later this year.

The All Star 60s Show comes to The Dome in October - and music fans can look forward to a feast of music from five of the biggest acts of the decade.

Brian Poole and The Tremeloes, The Troggs, The Ivy League, Badfinger and The Pacemakers will all take to the stage, serving up a string of smash hits that helped define the era as one of the greatest periods for British music.

The Tremeloes are best recalled for their iconic hits Silence Is Golden and Do You Love Me, racking up 22 top forty hits between 1962 and 1973.

Another of the biggest bands of the decades, The Troggs, will be on the bill.

Formed in 1964 by the late Reg Presley, who was lead vocallist, the group also scored a string of chart smashes with songs such as Wild Thing and Love Is All Around, famously covered by Wet Wet Wet whose version spent an incredible 15 weeks at number one.

The Pacemakers were also no stranger to the chart pinnacle during the 1960s, their first three singles How Do You Do It, I Like It and You’ll Never Walk Alone all climbing to the top spot during 1963 when the Merseybeat sound ruled the world.

Completing the line-up are The Ivy League, who scored success with songs including Tossing And Turning and Funny How Love Can Be and Badfinger, best remembered for the top ten smash Come And Get It and Without You, famously covered by Harry Nilsson and becoming a global number one hit.

Tickets for the October 29 show are priced at £27.50 on 01302 537704.
