Next Sunday 3rd of November, The Merseybeats, legendary 60´s pop band, will perform at the Benidorm Palace.
Joining them will be Augie Burr and The Four Shades, a tribute band to Cliff Richard & The Shadows, another legendary group from England who stood out as one of the country's most popular combos between the late 50s and early 60s.
A bit of history...
Originally called The Mavericks, Tony Crane and Billy Kinsley formed their first band in late 1960 and became The Pacifics in September 1961. They were renamed The Mersey Beats in February 1962 by Bob Wooler, MC at the Cavern Club. Later in April 1962, they became The Merseybeats.
They signed a recording contract with Fontana and had their first hit single in 1963 with "It's Love That Really Counts", followed in 1964 by their million-selling recording "I Think of You" which gained them their first gold disc. They suffered a setback when in February 1964 Billy Kinsley left to form his own band. He was replaced by Johnny Gustafson.
The Merseybeats appeared regularly at Liverpool's Cavern Club, and they claim to have appeared there with The Beatles on more occasions than any other band from that era. They were also successful abroad, touring in Germany and the US in 1964, and having their own Merseybeats Show on Italian television. Note...

The Constitution of 1812 is one of the most important legal texts of the Spanish state, since laid the foundation for subsequent constitutions. Considered a bastion of liberty, was promulgated in Cadiz on March 19th, 1812, the feast day of San Jose, so it was popularly known as "La Pepa".
Coinciding with the bicentenary of the signature, the Musical Society L'Illa de Benidorm, in collaboration with the esteemed director D.

Day: December 16th, 2012
Location: Town Hall of Benidorm
From 9th to 14th November, Benidorm shows just the way it is. A friendly city that celebrates its traditional acts in the street, sharing with neighbors and visitors the extensive program of events and activities that fill with party the streets of the tourist capital of the Mediterranean during its Patron Saint Feast Days in honor of the Virgen del Sufragio.
The festivities date back to March 1740 when a boat appeared on the Benidorm coast dragged in by a violent storm. The boat was burnt to prevent epidemics; however some local boys found the image of the Virgin in the rubble and took her to the church where later they built a chapel. This story is staged each year on the Poniente beach on Saturday about five in the afternoon.
On the 9th November, the Queen and her court will open the festivities and, after this, the groups will appear in the traditional Entrada.
The next day the bands and the sound of bells will announce that Benidorm is totally immersed in its festivities and the magnificent Playa de Poniente will be the setting where the finding of the Patrona will be performed. The solemnity of the mass in honour of Virgen del Sufragio, pilgrimages and processions will put the perfect end to the celebrations.
Parades, correfocs, batukadas and fireworks will happen until 14th November. Nancis Rubias and Melendi will offer two concerts at the Auditorio Julio Iglesias and SS.MM. Los Reyes de España square.
