The hit musical stage show THE SHADES OF THE 60s featuring DAN CHETTOE as TOM JONES is coming to

‘THE SHADES OF THE 60S’ is a musical stage show that celebrates some of the best known names in pop music from the 60s.  In a fabulous two hour pop song extravaganza which stars the young tenor, Dan Chettoe with 60s vocal group The Shades, this show will take audiences on a trip down musical memory lane.  Dan and the Shades will perform a catalogue of hit songs that started the pop music explosion in the 1960s and made stars out of thousands of names from the Beatles to the Supremes, from Tom Jones to Lulu and from Gerry and the Pacemakers to Chubby Checker.

The tour starts in Eastbourne on March 12th and travels all over the UK, finishing on June 30th in Lancaster.   Here’s a mouth-watering snapshot of some of the songs the cast will be performing to get the party started:

  • It’s Not Unusual/Tom Jones
  • I Only Wanna Be With You/Dusty Springfield
  • Twist and Shout/The Beatles
  • Thunderball/Tom Jones
  • Da Do Ron Ron/The Crystals
  • What’s New Pussycat/Tom Jones
  • You Can’t Hurry Love/The Supremes
  • Respect/Aretha Franklin
  • Do You Love Me/The Contours
  • You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me/Dusty Springfield
  • Green Green Grass of Home/Tom Jones
  • A Shot of Rhythm and Blues/Gerry and the Pacemakers
  • Let’s Twist Again/Chubby Checker
  • Delilah/Tom Jones

And Shout which became Lulu’s first smash hit when she performed it on TV’s ‘Ready Steady Go’ in 1965…aged 15!

Dan Chettoe thrilled TV audiences with his astonishing vocal performance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ when he performed a spine-tingling rendition of Cry Me A River.

“’Britain’s Got Talent’ was a really good experience; it gave me the confidence to perform,” says Dan, “and to really see what my voice could do.  I can’t wait to get on the road in 2019 – it’s going to be a complete honour to sing all these amazing, classic pop songs.  I’ve been watching some of the artists’ performances on YouTube and I’m discovering a whole new world!”
