The Hollies at St David's Hall, Cardiff, Reviewed

Following yesterdays Retro Vinyl feature on The Hollies here's my review of a more up to date event, the bands recent appearance at St David's Hall, Cardiff on April,19 which formed the last date of their 2013 UK tour which co-incidentally is the bands 50th anniversary in show business.

From The Hollies chart heyday, guitarist Tony Hicks and drummer Bobby Elliott are still an integral part of the band while lead vocalist Peter Howarth provides a fine vocal on several hits reminiscent of  Allan Clarke.

"Whilst retaining the traditional Hollies vocal style that kept them in the charts during the 60s and 70s, the band has also developed a harder rock sound on some numbers, particularly evident on Hicks guitar work on Too Young to Be Married and Look through Any Window."
