A trio of American singers who have been performing together for more than 50 years will be in Weston this month.

The Three Degrees will be at The Playhouse in High Street on September 19.

Formed in Philadelphia in 1963, the all-female group are renowned around the world for their soulful voices, impressive stage shows and beautiful gowns.

Fans can expect hits including When Will I See You Again, Dirty Ol’ Man and Take Good Care Of Yourself.

Although a total of 15 women have been part of the group at various points, the current lineup consists of Valerie Holliday, who has been in the band since 1967, Freddie Pool and Helen Scott, who was one of the original members.

Prince Charles is a famous fan of the band and they performed at both his 30th birthday party and wedding to Princess Diana.

The Three Degrees have released 13 studio albums since 1970, the latest being 2016’s Strategy – Our Tribute To Philadelphia.

The band’s best performing singles in the UK charts include When Will I See You Again, which reached number one, Woman In Love, which peaked at number 3, and My Simple Heart which made it to number nine.

The Three Degrees will take to the stage at 7.30pm.

They also recorded a TV special called The Three Degrees At The Royal Albert Hall in 1979.

Tickets, priced £13.50-27, are available online or by calling the box office on 01934 645544.
