THE BOOTLEG BEATLES
The world's first and finest tribute band, The Bootleg Beatles will be thrilling the audience of the Rockhal on 26 April 2013 and perform their authentic and note-perfect renditions of the greatest songs from the entire Beatles catalogue. Accompanied by their 8-piece orchestra, who help them faithfully re-create many of the hits the Fab Four actually never performed live, this show promises to be an event not be missed!
Formed from the West End cast of the Broadway musical "Beatlemania", The Bootleg Beatles career began at a now long forgotten student's bash in Tiverton, Devon, UK in 1980, almost ten years to the day since Paul McCartney announced the original's had split. Over the years The Bootleg Beatles have performed in front of many, many thousands of people including such notable luminaries as Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison, George Martin and Her Majesty The Queen. Of all the venues they have played perhaps none (aside from Buckingham Palace!) was more auspicious than their appearance on the rooftop of the Apple Building in London. On the freezing morning of 30th January 1999 the BBs performance commemorated the Fab Fours' farewell gig exactly 30 years ago to the day, the event transmitted on news channels across the globe.
Using film footage of the period and with a little help from their regular brass and string ensemble, the show traces the history of the Fab Four from Liverpool's Cavern Club through Sgt Pepper to The Apple Rooftop in what has now become one of the not to miss annual traditions of the seasons calendar. It's not the Beatles but you simply won't believe it!
Re-live the sights and sounds of the sixties as the world's premier Beatles band will be hitting the stage of the Rockhal on Friday 26 April 2013 with their spectacular two hour multi-media stage production featuring all the classic Beatles hits. They will be bringing the sounds and the atmosphere of the Beatles to life with as much authenticity as is humanly possible. Fastidiously Authentic!
