The Hollies have announced a huge UK tour. The Hollies – who celebrated their 60th anniversary with a live run in 2022 – are entering their seventh decade as a band, and they’re marking the occasion in a big way.

The upcoming tour – which will feature original members Bobby Elliott and Tony Hicks – kicks off on September 16 in Blackburn at King George’s Hall, and will come to an end on November 9 at the London Palladium.

As well as drummer Bobby and lead guitarist Tony, the lineup will also include lead singer Peter Howarth, bass player Ray Stiles, keyboardist Ian Parker and rhythm guitarist Steve Lauri.

Fans will be looking forward to seeing the band playing hits like ‘Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress)’, ‘The Air That I Breathe’, ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ and ‘Bus Stop’.

The group have spent a total of 263 weeks in the top 40 in the UK, and they have performed continuously since forming in 1962.

Their tracks have also featured in movies and adverts over the years.

In 1995, the Hollies were awarded an Ivor Novello for their outstanding contribution to British music.

In 2010, the group were inducted into the American Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, recognised their “impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of Rock and Roll”.
