The evergreen Hollies thrilled a full house with a performance  to cherish and remember.  

Two and a half hours of songs that have now become classics in their own right, along with tribute numbers to The Move and Mud entertained the Hollies faithful.

These days the more mature audience is content to sit and soak up the atmosphere, but is still willing join in when required, unlike in the sixties when we stood, cheered and screamed our heads off.  Forty two years on, some of us are glad that we can still make it to the theatre, let alone bob up and down in the aisle.

Which just goes to show you, that if you are going to do a job, then do it right. The Hollies have certainly done that over the years.

Tonight's performance thoroughly deserved the standing ovation for surely one of the greatest British groups to have entertained the world for so long.

Norwich will warmly welcome back the Hollies anytime.
