THEY'RE golden and they're oldies, but fans of Sir Cliff Richard were made to feel like the young ones on Saturday.
Fifty years peeled away in a couple of hours as Sir Cliff, reunited with Bruce Welch, Brian Bennett and Perth's Hank Marvin, performed hit after hit -- songs from five decades charting the changing face of pop music.
The Shadows and Sir Cliff, looking fit and tanned on his return to WA, will also pack out Burswood Dome this evening.
An army of passionate fans snapped up every ticket available to catch their two concerts.
Every seat was sold by September -- just days after they went on sale.
The evening was also a special time for lead guitarist Hank Marvin, who lives in East Perth. The last time the group was together in Australia was in 1961.
On the eve of last night's concert, Sir Cliff said: ``It's the final tour in this sort of format.
``We have seen The Young Ones for the very last time.''
Cliff Richard and The Shadows dominated the British popular music scene in the late 1950s and early '60s, enjoying success together and apart.
The Shadows toured regularly in the '70s and '80s and had Top 10 successes, often competing with Sir Cliff for the No.1 spot.
Sir Cliff went on to worldwide success, scoring the most Top 10 and Top 20 hits in the UK singles chart.
He remains the only UK artist to achieve a No.1 single in five consecutive decades.
