In the early sixties, Gerry and the Pacemakers worked the same Liverpool/Hamburg circuit as the Beatles and many other groups before being signed in 1962 by manager Brian Epstein, as his second group after the Beatles.

The Following year, under the direction of producer George Martin, they burst on the scene with three consecutive No. 1 hits - "How Do You Do It". "I Like It" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" -  proving themselves serious competitors to the Beatles.

Over the next few years, most of the Pacemakers subsequent hits were actuially written by Gerry Marsden, including "It's All Right", "I'm The One", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Cryin" and "Ferry Cross the Mersey"(also the name of a film in which they starred).

The group disbanded in 1966 but was reformed by Gerry in 1974. They continue to tour the UK and worldwide - "I love being on stage performing for people all over the glove", say Gerry - and audiences continue to flock to their concerts. "Gerry Cros the Mersey" is a journey down memory lane with Gerry performing all the great songs from his repertoire interspersed with stories and anecdotes from his days on the road. Gerry loves performing this show as it affords him the opportunity to really connect with his audience.

It really is a wonderful show and like Gerry himself, continues to be in great demand all over the world.
