The Drifters are making their way to Richmond Theatre later this month, fresh from the successful gold selling release of the recent album, Up on the Roof.

In March of this year, the current line up received gold discs from Sony for the first new recordings in the UK for more than 35 years.

Now in their 59th year, the Drifters have seen massive chart success on both sides of the Atlantic and across the world, with more than 114m album sales and 214m singles sales and a vast catalogue of hits.

Billed as the Masquerade Tour, the current recording line up of The Drifters will perform the group’s greatest hits and new material - some of which is featured on the new album.

Drifter Michael Williams says: “We are very excited about the Masquerade Tour.

“The idea of the Masquerade Tour is that it is just one big party – from start to finish so we are hoping that everyone will get on their dancing shoes and come and join the party. There are also some real surprises in the set alongside the old favourites.”

As one of the biggest selling groups of all time, The Drifters have featured more than 65 vocalists in almost six decades.

The Drifters are back on tour performing hits such as Under the Boardwalk, Save the Last Dance, Up on the Roof and many more The Drifters; Richmond Theatre, The Green, Richmond, on Sunday, November 25, at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £25 and are available from or 0844 8717651.
