New Plymouth's Bowl of Brooklands is set to again host The Seekers - 46 years after a record-breaking attendance during their heyday.

In 1968 26,500 people attended the Australian chart-topping band's two shows at the bowl - a record that stood for 31 years.

The show at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands on November 29 is part of The Golden Jubilee Tour which celebrates half a century since the group first sang together.

''The Seekers' performances at the bowl are legendary,'' New Plymouth District Council venues manager Nelita Byrne said.

''They specifically wanted to come back here as the bowl's huge audiences were as much a ground-breaking part of their history as they are of ours.

''It's fantastic to have them here where a new generation of music fans can be introduced to them and where people who went to those concerts can revisit those great times.''

The  original founding members of Judith Durham, Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley will undoubtedly perform their big hits such as I'll Never Find Another You, a World of Our Own, The Carnival is Over, Morningtown Ride, Someday One Day and Georgy Girl during their two-hour performance.

The group was the first to reach number one in the United Kingdom charts with their first three singles and the first Australian group to reach number one with their Oscar-nominated hit Georgy Girl.

The group has sold more than 60 million records globally. Tickets are on sale at
