The latest incarnation of legendary American soul group The Drifters will be seen and heard on stage in Hertfordshire later this month.

The Drifters return to Watford Colosseum on Friday, January 31, presenting their most spectacular show to date.

Billed as the ‘Optimum World Tour’, the concert will celebrate the group’s 60th anniversary, paying tribute to former members and showcasing classics such as Under The Boardwalk, Saturday Night at The Movies and You’re More Than a Number In My Little Red Book.

The current recording line-up of The Drifters will perform the group’s greatest hits alongside their own new releases.

Group member Michael Williams said: “We are very proud to be fronting the Optimum Tour of this great brand.

“The Drifters’ music is very uplifting and upbeat and the new recordings have been a great success with the public.

“The idea of the Optimum Tour is to honour all of the members before us that have made this brand the successful dynasty it has become today.

“The concert features over 37 tracks and some very interesting new songs from our brand new album.”

Tickets to see The Drifters perform classic songs from the group’s vast back catalogue, such as Come On Over To My Place and Kissin’ In The Back Row Of The Movies, cost £25, with concessions £2 off.
