Simon Goodall and The Bourne Again Shadows at Number 8

Evesham Editorial 4th Nov, 2022   0

FANS of Cliff Richard and the Shadows are in for a treat as Simon Goodall and The Bourne Again Shadows bring their acclaimed tribute show to Number 8, Pershore on Saturday, November 19 as part of their UK tour.

The band will be performing Cliff Richard chart-toppers like Summer Holiday, Living Doll, Move It and Please Don’t Tease, along with classic Shadows hits including Apache, Wonderful Land, Foot Tapper and Dance On.

He was hailed as Britain’s Elvis Presley, they were the band that got excited teenagers wearing black-rimmed specs and strumming tennis rackets, Cliff Richard and The Shadows dominated Britpop in the early sixties – and, more than six decades later, Cliff is still out there wowing the crowds.

Simon Goodall, a professional solo and session singer, developed his ‘Tribute to Cliff’ act after many people had commented just how much he sounded like Cliff.  Simon teamed up with The Bourne Again Shadows for a debut concert in 2014.

They have worked together regularly ever since and are widely considered the most authentic Cliff and the Shadows tribute act. After listening to their music Pete Lincoln, a musician who worked in Cliff Richards’ band, commented, “The emulation of the Shadow’s sound is spot on, and the ‘Cliff’ vocals are uncanny.” Even Sir Cliff himself has said that the band vocalist Simon Goodall, “…is without doubt the best ‘Cliff Sound-alike” in the business.”

The show at Number 8 promises to be a toe-tapping trip down memory lane!

Tickets priced at £19, or £18 for Friends of Number 8 are on sale now from Number 8 Box Office on 01386 555488 or can be booked online at
