The Bootleg Beatles are heading for Halifax in an extensive 2016 tour that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the milestone album Revolver.
This time the band along with their renowned string and brass ensemble will visit seventeen cities and tickets are available from 10am today (May 29) from www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
Since the band’s inception in 1980 they have performed hundreds of gigs across the globe, earning themselves an amazing reputation along the way.
Even the great George Martin, who produced many of the original Fab Four’s records, described the Bootleg Beatles experience as “A terrific show”, while the Mail On Sunday hailed their “Mind-boggling accuracy”.
The Bootleg Beatles wereformed from the original cast of London’s West End hit show ‘Beatlemania’, and have since become an institution in their own right with their note-perfect recreation of hits from every era of the world’s most famous ever pop group.
Every tiny detail is meticulously covered from costumes to authentic period instruments; from the ‘Liverpudlian’ banter to their ‘inflection perfect’ vocal mimicry.
But it’s not only their sound that is so authentic; they bear an uncanny resemblance to the Fab Four. Just take a look at the picture and you can see the uncanny resemblance.
As one reviewer recently said... “It’s not John, Paul, George and Ringo ... but you simply won’t believe it”.
Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the release of the milestone album ‘Revolver’ by The Beatles, widely acknowledged as the record that redrew the map of popular music and proved that the band were not only incredible songwriters but also true innovators in the studio.
Songs from that album – certified five times Platinum - feature heavily in The Bootlegs Beatles set and will of course receive an airing on these March dates.
1966 was also the year of the Fab Four’s final public show in Candlestick Park, San Francisco, which at that time was home to the San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco Giants.
Don’t miss a show that was described as “Off-the-scale fabulous” by BBC Radio’s Chris Evans, and “Flawless!” by Mojo Magazine.
There’s never been a better time to immerse yourself in the magic of the Bootleg Beatles. We all love them – Yeah Yeah Yeah!
Coming to the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, on Monday March 14, 2016. Tickets are priced from £29.
