The Manfreds will be heading to High Wycombe this autumn as part of a huge tour across the UK.

The musical group, which formed in the 1990s, will stop off in Bucks on November 17 at the Swan Theatre where they will bring rhythm and blues nostalgia, along with their greatest hits.

They will also be teaming up with musical legend Georgie Fame when travelling around the country.

Their 2021 tour was originally planned for last year, but due to the ongoing pandemic, their dates across the country were delayed.

Please note that all original tickets remain valid.

Paul Jones, one of the group’s members, said: “Not only is it exciting to think that the Manfreds might actually be able to play together on tour again at last; that the great Georgie Fame will be back with us as well; that our friends and fans, starved of live music from us for so long, will refresh their memories with the real thing once more; but also that these loved, cherished and much-missed venues - and the people who work in and look after them - will once again host us and make us welcome!”

Originally known as Manfred Mann in the 1960s, the group found success with their breakout single 5-4-3-2-1, recorded for ground-breaking TV pop show Ready Steady Go!

Following this, Manfred Mann went on to score three number one hits in the UK, as well as 13 more in the Top 10, with their first number one Do Wah Diddy Diddy landing them in the vanguard of the British pop invasion of America alongside The Beatles and The Animals.

Following several more hits including Pretty Flamingo, a song which was often played by Bruce Springsteen during the early years of his career, and Bob Dylan’s Mighty Quinn, by the end of the 60’s, the band members had decided to pursue their own separate musical directions, resulting in the disbanding of Manfred Mann.

Fast forward 20 years later to 1991, several original members of the band reformed as The Manfreds, in celebration of Tom McGuinness’ 50th birthday and surrounding a compilation of Manfred Mann’s classic hits.

Mike D’Abo added: “I’m looking forward to being part of the Manfred’s Maximum R&B Tour featuring our special guest and old friend Georgie Fame.

“To think that, between us, we topped the charts on no less than six occasions in the 60s - with both The Manfreds & Georgie Fame each notching up three No.1 hits - that’s an achievement I’m ‘Mighty’ proud of!”

They will be heading all over the UK as they plan to visit venues in Bournemouth, Barnstaple, Sheffield, Birmingham, Reading and York.
