A BAND with more hits under their belt than the Beatles are set to perform at The Meres on Thursday.

‘The Air That I Breathe’, ‘Bus Stop’, ‘Carrie Anne’ and ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ are just some of the mega hits The Hollies will be singing on stage at the venue in Trent Road, Grantham.

Beyond those familiar songs, The Hollies have also been responsible for a remarkably varied and intriguing catalogue of music and still regularly sell-out major venues all over the world. They are known as innovators, using unusual instrumentation during the production of their records, including tubular bells, a celesta, glockenspiel and bagpipes.

The iconic band helped shape the world of pop and rock as we know it today.

Their live performance is ‘Hollies’ - wistful vocal harmonies or sheer raw musical power with each song spectacularly showcased by its own brilliant lightshow.

On stage their five decades of music is driven by Bobby Elliott’s powerful drumming and punctuated by Tony Hick’s incisive narrative - the inside story on how The Hollies classic recordings were created, seasoned with the odd morsel of backstage gossip.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £22 (£20). To book, visit the Guildhall Arts Centre box office, call 01476 406158 or visit
