Coming to Worthing: Maximum R&B with The Manfreds

Featuring a line-up consisting of original Manfred Mann singer Paul Jones and his 1966 replacement Mike d’Abo, (who each secured a string of hits with the band), along with founding members Mike Hugg and Tom McGuinness, The Manfreds reformed in 1991, with drummer Rob Townsend (best known for being the drummer in prog rock band Family), Marcus Cliffe and Simon Currie also joining. This autumn they embark on an extensive national tour, which comes to the Assembly Hall, Worthing on Wednesday 24 October.

Since forming in 1962, Manfred Mann have secured their place in the history of British pop music, with timeless hits such as Do Wah Diddy, Pretty Flamingo, Sha La La, and of course, 5-4-3-2-1, providing the soundtrack to generations of fans.

As well as performing their most loved songs, the 60s luminaries will also perform tracks that brought them success as individual artists, such as the Mike d’Abo penned ‘Handbags and Gladrags’ and the McGuinness Flint classic ‘When I’m Dead and Gone‘.

For 2018, the Maximum Rhythm & Blues tour will also welcome very special guest Georgie Fame. First shooting into the charts as the founding member of Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames, he went on to achieve 3 UK Number One singles Yeh, Yeh, Get Away and The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde. With his much-loved blend of Jazz and Rhythm & Blues, Georgie Fame has consistently worked in the highest musical circles and has become an icon of the British music scene.

Maximum Rhythm & Blues will be at the Assembly Hall, Worthing on Wednesday 24 October 2018. For more information on the show and tickets, please visit the Worthing Theatres website.
