Initially called The Tornados when the band was established in 1961, they changed their name to The Golden Earrings a year later. Their first 1965 single "Please Go" became a national Top 10 hit. The band ultimately shook the world in 1973 with their monster hit "Radar Love", which charted in the top ranks on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Now, just in time for their Anniversary concert in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on Dec 12th, the mini albumThe Haguecontains five new Rock songs written by Barry Hay, George Kooymans, Rinus Gerritsen and Cesar Zuiderwijk. The band members describe the songs as 'sounding new, but typical Golden Earring'.
Also a number of books about the band are in the works. And last but not least, there's a documentary coming up on the legendary band.
