Bachelor Party Coming to Workers

Who: The Bachelors
Where: Newcastle Panthers
When: Wednesday August 2, 2000

SURPASSED only by THE BEATLES on the British charts in the 60s, THE BACHELORS won the hearts of a generation with their blend and unique harmony sound.

Huge record sales in Australia were matched by 187 weeks in the British charts between 1963 and 1967.

Ten years after the original group of John Stokes and brothers Con and Dec Cluskey disbanded in 1984, Stokes reformed with Jonathan Young and Kevin Neill.

Stokes said the break-up was a blessing in disguise.

'It gave me an opportunity to kick-start the act again and bring back all those melodies that were so popular with audiences throughout the world,' he said.

Their first album, RENAISSANCE, included re-recordings of original hits DIANE , I BELIEVE , CHARMAINE and I WOULDN'T TRADE YOU FOR THE WORLD .

Currently recording a third album, the group will be travelling Australia as part of the Renaissance World Tour.

Already performing to packed crowds in the UK, the trio is keen to rekindle its Australian following.

They will be performing at the Newcastle Workers Club on Wednesday, August 2, and tickets are on sale from the club or =4929-7555.
