The announcement offered the following mini-bio of the group:

“Alongside the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the Hollies are one of the U.K.’s most celebrated bands from the 1960s British Invasion era. The band hasn’t stopped touring since they formed in 1962 and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010 by Steve Van Zandt of Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band.

“At the heart of the Hollies are the integral, original members, powerhouse drummer Bobby Elliott and singer, songwriter and lead guitarist Tony Hicks. Their soaring, distinctive harmonies, brilliantly crafted songs, and cultivated musicianship, coupled with the Hollies’ extensive back catalog of memorable tunes, have ensured the longevity of one Britain’s greatest Pop/Rock bands whose music remains fresh, dynamic and timeless.”

    Hollies were great esp in the 60’s and early 70’s, after that many personnel changes but they managed to keep the band’s name Alive!
