Competition – Win Tickets to See The Searchers

NE1fm 102.5 is offering listeners the chance to win two tickets to see 1960s Merseybeat sensations The Searchers live on Saturday April 28th, 2012, in our latest station-wide competition.

The Searchers were one of the most successful acts of the mid-1960s, with three of their first four singles hitting number one, as the band emerged as part of a wave of Liverpudlian talent including The Beatles.

Although the famous 1960s line-up is no longer fully intact, both John McNally and Frank Allen remain, and our lucky winner and an extra of their choosing will not only get to see the band live at South Shields’ Customs House, but will also get to meet the band backstage after the show.

For your chance to win, simply answer the following question:

Which single by The Searchers reached #1 in the UK Singles Chart in August 1963?

If you think you know the answer, you can enter by e-mailing All correct guesses will be counted, and the lucky winner informed shortly after the closing date of April 1st.
