As major players in the magnificent 1960’s British Pop Revolution; a time when British bands first conquered the world, The Hollies hallmark vocal harmony has not wavered throughout 50 Years of continuous touring, performing and recording.From 1963 through to the mid-70’s, the Hollies had more hits than even the Beatles. In that period alone, they had 18 Top ten hits.‘Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)’ was No1 in the US charts in the 1970’s, and ‘The Air That I Breathe’ topped the UK charts in 1974.“He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” made No1 spot when re-released in 1988 - and more recently, The Hollies were proud to take part of a fund raising video in aid of the families of the victims of the Hillsborough disaster, and ‘Heavy’ was the Christmas Number One - this time by The Justice Collective.
At the heart of The Hollies since 1963, are the integral, original members; drummer Bobby Elliott and singer, songwriter and lead guitarist, Tony Hicks. The Hollies are one of Britain’s best loved groups. Their soaring, distinctive harmonies, brilliantly crafted songs, and cultivated, often experimental musicianship, coupled with The Hollies extensive back catalogue of Hits, has ensured the longevity of one of our greatest Pop/Rock bands whose music remains fresh, familiar, and timeless.
This year, The Hollies will have toured Australia and New Zealand before embarking on The 2013 UK Spring Tour, when they will be promoting ‘HOLLIES LIVE HITS - We Got The Tunes!’, a double album produced and mixed by triple Grammy award winning Paul Hicks. Along with the Beatles and the Stones, this band helped shape the world of Pop and Rock as we know it today, and recently The Hollies were honoured by the prestigious American Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame – ‘For their Impact on the Evolution, Development, and Perpetuation of Rock n’ Roll’.
The Hollies are Tony Hicks, Peter Howarth, Ray Stiles, Ian Parker, Steve Lauri, and Bobby Elliott.
