The story of Ben E King and the Drifters is now on a tour at theatres across the UK, from Cornwall to Inverness through the musical show Stand By Me. The show is a phenomenal musical revue of a group that helped to define Atlantic Records, inspired early rock and roll and were forerunners to both the black music movement in 1950’s America and early Motown.
Through the music, the show explores the challenges, controversy and conflicts via the course of a vast succession of over 50 hits over the last six decades. Favourite songs transport you straight to Broadway, talk of growing up in 1950’s Harlem, and the days of Disco and the Northern Soul scene.
You can win a pair of tickets to Stand By Me at a UK tour venue of your choice. You’ll also have the chance to meet and greet the cast of this soulful show.
