The Seekers' UK Tour Press Reviews
Regionalmag Nottingham, 2 May 2014
Making their appearance on the stage, Australia’s first international supergroup were welcomed to Nottingham by a capacity crowd with a five minute standing ovation … Judith’s voice is still awesome, strong and uplifting. Its crisp, bell like quality has always been a feature of The Seekers music … Theirs is such a rare harmonic blend, both vocally and instrumentally, that lifts them up above the pack … I grew up with these songs, as they became a part of my and my family’s life. Listening to them perform tonight was an honour and was one of the most memorable, lovely nights ever spent at a concert … These guys have still got it and I was privileged to have witnessed it. The world would simply be a far darker place without Judith Durham and The Seekers.
Nottingham Post, 2 May 2014
A standing ovation before they'd even opened their mouths set the tone for the evening. It was touch and go if they'd squeeze any tunes in between the applause … a feast of hits, memories, smiles and - let's face it – a concert to give goosebumps to anyone with a heart … the evening was a genuinely uplifting experience …”
Liverpool Confidential, 6 May 2014
IT is extremely rare for a performance to receive a standing ovation before it has ended or indeed actually begun. But as the Seekers strolled on stage at a packed Philharmonic Hall the audience, which seemed charged by an almost intoxicating anticipation, rose to its feet unbidden, and almost as one; cheering and clapping a deeply felt warm to scorching welcome to the four Australians … A classy and rather inventive touch of the current act is the use of a film backdrop to show the Seekers in their early period of roller-coaster success where they mingled with the young and raffish glitterati of the music world including the Rolling Stones and the Beatles … It was a slick, tight presentation – as you might expect from such veterans …
Bournemouth Echo, 24 May 2014
When people are on their feet to welcome a band on stage before a note's been sung you know you're in for a special night … There were a lot of special moments and so many memories. At the sound of Bruce's distinctive banjo intro to timeless lullaby Morningtown Ride hundreds of heads started swaying side to side - and there was plenty of opportunity for singing along … Still clear as a bell and unchanged despite the years, Judith's voice never wavered … The emotion is palpable and there's barely a dry eye by the end. It may be over but thanks so much for the memories Judith, Athol, Bruce and Keith. We're glad you made it.

Judith Durham's remarkable voice … captivated the capacity audience who rose as one in a standing ovation after the band's encore The Carnival is Over … Judith's beaming smile lit up the stage, outshining her sparkly gowns, as her golden, pitch-perfect voice, virtually unchanged since the days the group shared stages with the Fab Four and the Rolling Stones, filled the hall … superb was indeed the word.
