THE 60 FOUR – Norwood Concert Hall – 3.5K

By Peter Maddern

Drama actor, Ben Francis’ creation – The 60 Four – is certainly a massive thing, with nine band members joining Adelaide’s own fab four on stage. The Norwood Concert Hall is an ideal venue to belt out the tunes that their audience of aging boomers clearly relished. The harmonies uplift, the choruses get you moving, the arrangements are tight and add depth to what were very likely first recorded on just four tracks.

While the title may suggest this is just a Beatles tribute night, the gang start off with The Four Seasons but in sets of two or three make their way through the likes of the Bee Gees, Van Morrison and Simon Garfunkel and that is just before interval.

Ben certainly deserves credit for bringing such a big undertaking to the stage and more for taking the show around various city and state-wide venues.
