FIFTY years in the music industry isn't something many bands can say they have achieved.

But after more than half a century performing on stages across the nation, Australian music legends The Delltones are still rocking out to audiences.

On Friday, The Delltones will perform at Her Majesty's Theatre as part of their 'Harmony & Rock 'n' Roll That's Good For The Soul' tour.

The four-part harmony band is set to perform well-loved classic songs from its early years including Get A Little Dirt On Your Hands, Come A Little Bit Closer, Hangin' Five and Gee.

Audiences can also relive The Delltones' 1980s revival with songs such as Bop 'Til Ya Drop, Tickled Pink and Get A Job also performed on the night.

Australia fell in love with the four young lifesavers Noel Widerberg, Brian Perkins, Warren Lucas and Ian Wilson back in 1958.

Over the years their harmonies have lit up television screens across the nation, with a string of classics to their names.

Today, The Delltones are Woody Finlayson, Merv Dick, Ian Wilson and Owen Booth.

The only remaining original member of the band, Wilson, said changes in the industry had not been a problem for the band whose audience has only grown over the years.

"I don't think we'd survive if we only had the old fans," he said.
