The Manfreds Farewell Tour

Manfred Mann, aka The Manfreds – they even wrote a hit about it “5-4-3-2-1 it’s The Manfred’s” – were one of the hugely successful British Invasion groups of the 1960’s. Their R&B based pop style with an undercurrent of jazz proved to be a winning combination that competed strongly up against bands like the Beatles and the Stones despite the changing musical trends of the time. During the decade, first with Paul Jones until 1966 and then Mike D’Abo as lead singers, both with distinctive voices and considered two of the finest singers on the British pop and rock scene at the time, the band had four No.1 and a string of Top 10 singles, all enduringly memorable songs, including 5-4-3-2-1, Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Pretty Flamingo, My Name Is Jack, Fox On The Run, Mighty Quinn, Just Like A Woman, Ragamuffin Man, Semi-Detached Suburban Mr James, and Ha Ha Said The Clown.
