Broadcasting legend Mike Sweeney and his band Manchester Beat take to the stage in a show packed with 60’s classics, featuring the biggest hits of all the great Manchester bands of that decade.

As lead singer of The Salford Jets, Mike had a string of hit singles in the 70’s and 80’s including Who You Looking At and Gina I’ve Got A Cortina. His music career has also seen him fronting 60’s hit band The Mindbenders (“Groovy Kind of Love” – which later became a massive hit for Phil Collins) during the 80’s and 90’s, and time as lead vocalist with another legendary 60’s band, The Swinging Blue Jeans (“Hippy Hippy Shake”).

Mike is currently the host of BBC Radio Manchester’s Morning Show, where his absolute authority on music (particularly the sounds of the 60’s) coupled with his funny and straight-talking views unsurprisingly draw flocks of fans every day.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity of seeing one of Salford’s finest, live in concert.
