Gerry & The Pacemakers are set to headline the 50th Anniversary British Invasion Tour later this year.

The eight date tour will also feature Chad & Jeremy, Billy J. Kramer, Mike Pender's Searchers and Denny Laine, who was the original lead singer of The Moody Blues.

The Beatles launched The British Invasion in February, 1964 and The Fab Four and these other Brits dominated U.S. radio airplay through the mid 60s.
