Proby’s shoes were

famous in the Sixties.

They were hand made

and matched his velvet

suits. He had seven sets

of different colors. Often,

at the end of the show,

P.J. would throw his

shoes into the audience.

Girls that were so lucky

to catch one usually still

hang on to it till this day.

The one shoe on the photo

was recently sold on eBay

to Lee and Leanne in Australia.

The original  programme of the P.J. Proby “Farewell” Tour

from March 1966, before P.J. had to return to the States,

because his work permit expired on 1 April.

P.J. Proby was backed by his full Orchestra.

The Searchers were the main support act and closed the first half. 

Other acts were “Shirley and Johnny”, “Thane Russel and Three”,

“The Action”. Brighton’s rock band “Shelley” -known for their

ability to get the crowd on their feet - preceded Proby.

Compere Tony Marsh - here with his dog Nickers - sadly died

in the Eighties.

The Tour started at Birmingham Town Hall (12th March 1966).

Other dates: Bristol Colston Hall (15th March 1966),

Newcastle City Hall (18th March 1966),

Sheffield City Hall (19th March 1966),

De Montfort Hall Leicester (21st March 1966) and

Liverpool Empire (27th March 1966).

(The Sorrows replaced The Action at the Newcastle date).

Another Sixties momentum:

P.J. Proby & Gerry Marsden

together in The States for a

Shindig Show,  June 1965.

Listen to Proby and Gerry

each singing

You’ll Never Walk Alone
