GERRY ACROSS THE MERSEY THEATRE SEVERN 30th May 2014.
Not a big crowd at Theatre Severn Shrewsbury tonight, despite an excellent band. The show billed as Gerry Cross The Mersey features legendary Liverpool hit makers Gerry & The Pacemakers. An excellent showman fronting four superb musicians. In between songs Gerry treated the audience to his scouse humour which encapsulated the audience.
It seems an age since I first worked with Gerry at Welshpool Town Hall in 1983, but have seen him many times since. He hasn't lost that personality that has endured audiences since the early 1960s. His voice was still there and shone in particular at the end with the anthem that links him with football teams around the country - "You'll Never Walk Alone"
