The Searchers returned to Liverpool to perform Tuesday afternoon and evening performances at the Cavern Club back stage before packed standing room only audiences.
Hal Bruce from Canada opened the concert followed by The Repeatles from Sweden playing second before The Searchers came on. They were enthusiastically received by a mixed crowd of people of all ages and countries. They have been playing for 47 years and the lead singer says, "it doesn't get any easier after 47 years" touring and they are still in demand around the world and in the UK and have a hectic schedule touring and performing.
The Searchers have had record sales in excess of 40 million over 47 years and have influenced many bands such as Tom Petty, The Byrds, Bruce Springsteen and The Ramones all of whom happily credit them. One only wonders what the Beatles' record sales could have been if they had stayed together and continued recording and touring.
