With their soaring, distinctive harmonies, brilliantly crafted songs and passionate performances The Hollies are one of the defining sounds of the sixties.
The group are back in Buxton this month with another two-hour celebration of classic hits from their long and successful career. Their big hits such as "The Air That I Breathe", "On a Carousel" and "He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother" will all be delivered with their usual zest.
Since their inception in 1962 The Hollies have never really gone away, their extensive back catalogue of classic hits still remains as fresh and timeless as when they came out. The Hollies’ visit to Buxton is part of a line-up of other top music acts coming to the venue including John Lodge from The Moody Blues (24 Sep), Lulo Reinhardt and Andre Kregal Quartet (23 Sep) and The Blockheads (7 Oct). All or Nothing the Mod Musical, a gritty new musical that charts the rise of the band The Small Faces is also on its way (from 3 - 5 October).
Some of the best tribute artist in the country will also take to the stage including The Floyd Effect (16 Sep), offering the iconic music of Pink Floyd from the Dark Side of the Moon to Wish You Were Here and all the way to The Wall and The Division Bell. If you like the sounds of the 70s T.Rextasy will be delivering a night of T.Rex music in their show I Love to Boogie (27 Sep). Firm favourite The Solid Gold 70s show is back with all the glam rock and disco greats (6 Oct).
