A great line-up of musicians are heading to OPEN for The Sixties Invasion show that will take you on a rollercoaster ride with an evening filled with endless 60s hits and early 70s pop songs.

Pop rock band Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich, who formed back in 1964, are the headline act for the evening on March 22.

The group scored a No.1 hit in 1968's UK Singles Chart with their song The Legend of Xanadu which achieved a combined sales figure in excess of one million copies.

Their other Top 10 UK hits include Hideaway, Hold Tight, Bend It and Save Me to name just a few. Bend It also achieved over a million sales and was later used in an episode of the American animated sitcom Futurama.

Not only were they a success in the UK but they had several chart topping hits in New Zealand, Australia and Canada.

With the likes of Paul McCartney backing the band, The Tornados have performed with a whole host of legendary artists throughout their relatively short career.

The final supporting act of the evening will be British soul band The Foundations. Best known for their track Baby Now That I've Found You, which was No.1 in the UK and Canada, the group had a diverse and changing line-up during their three-year career.
