This is how I spent my teenage years, my then girlfriend, now wife were regular attendees at both the Globe and Odeon theatres in the early 1960s, we saw an incredible range of pop acts as well as many that disappeared without trace;
This is the running order for the Freddie and the Dreamers / Roy Orbison
Ezz Reco and the Launchers with Boysie Grant and Beverley
Chris Sandford and the Coronets
Tony Sheridan with the Bobby Patrick Big Six
Freddie and the Dreamers
The Three Quarters
Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders
The show started at 6:15pm and was all over by 8:00pm, allowing for the intermission we saw nine acts in 90 minutes, it was pretty much two songs and you are off, I must admit we got quite a lot for our 10 bob. We all sat quietly, listened to the music and clapped politely at the appropriate moment, we hadn’t then suffered the screaming nonsense that came later, wonderful times, wonderful memories.
