Beatles aiming to bring fab evening to resort
by Henry James

THE Bootleg Beatles are returning to Southport Theatre on Thursday, March 17 and are aiming to bring a fab evening to the venue.

The band will be bringing their renowned string and brass ensemble to their forthcoming concert.

Since their inception in 1980 they have performed hundreds of gigs across the globe, earning themselves an amazing reputation along the way.

George Martin himself described the Bootleg Beatles experience as, “A terrific show”.

Formed from the original cast of London’s West End hit show ‘Beatlemania’, The Bootleg Beatles have become ‘an institution' in their own right with their note-perfect recreation of hits from every era of the world’s most famous songbook.

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.

As one reviewer recently said: “It’s not John Paul George and Ringo ... but you simply won’t believe it”.

2016 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. ’66 was also the year of the Fab Four’s final public show in Candlestick Park, San Fran.
