Sir Cliff slips back into his pink jacket after half a century

Monday September 21, 2009

At 68, Cliff Richard is still capable of the rock 'n' roll moves that delighted fans back in 1962… and can even pull off a shocking pink jacket like the one he used to wear.

The Peter Pan of rock dazzled a sell-out crowd in Ireland through a three-hour set, featuring songs from an eagerly-awaited new album.

It was the first night of his reunion tour with The Shadows, which includes 22 dates on home territory, another 14 in Europe and many more Down Under.

Showing he's not complacent, Britain's favourite Bachelor Boy even changed costumes several times – at one point donning a white suit and a gold shirt.

"You would have expected him to put a hip out of place with all those costume changes," one fan told the Daily Mail. "But he's clearly not ready to put his feet up just yet."
