In an evening filled with some of music's all time greatest hits, Peter Asher of Peter & Gordon, Terry Sylvester of the Hollies, and Denny Laine of the Moody Blues and Wings celebrate the 50th anniversary of the British Invasion!
In this unforgettable show, these classic artists present songs familiar to every age group the world over. Your host Peter Asher returns to Colorado nearly 50 years to the day after Peter & Gordon made their Denver debut at Red Rocks-for those trivia buffs it was one of Red Rock's earliest Rock and roll shows, on July 23, 1964! Hits like "I Go To Pieces" "Nobody I Know", "Lady Godiva", "World Without Love", and more bring back memories of that golden era.
Denny Laine brings to the stage his worldwide smashes from his days in Wings with Paul McCartney: "Jet", "Band On the Run", "Time To Hide" "Let Me Roll it" "Live and Let Die" and more! And audiences refuse to let him leave the stage without singing his legendary Top Ten smash with the Moody Blues, "Go Now".
Terry Sylvester opened for the Beatles at the Cavern, toured the world with the Swinging Blue Jeans on the strength of their massive hit "Hippy Hippy Shake", and struck gold replacing Graham Nash in the Hollies. With 23 U.S. chart hits, The Hollies moved a generation with a deep catalog of tremendous songs laced with their stunning vocal harmonies: "The Air That I Breathe", "He Ain't Heavy-He's My Brother" "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress"and more. Terry Sylvester was the fifth Liverpool native inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, on March 15th, 2010, as a member of the Hollies.
Also features LA recording artist and Colorado Native Mollie Weaver and Rick Cowling (Kenny Loggins and Ambrosia).
