Well, sort of. Because if you look closely, you'll notice that these aren't the real bands - but their leading tribute acts, all coming together for one weekend of live music from the biggest acts in the world.

Taking place at Bowlers in Manchester in March 2013, Bootleg Festival gives music fans the chance to hear all their favourite music performed by their sort-of-favourite bands, with an epic arena atmosphere.

The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Oasis, Michael Jackson, Queen, Coldplay, Take That, Adele, The Eagles, David Bowie, Westlife, Roy Orbison and Kings of Leon are just some of the world famous bands who'll be represented over the weekend by their various tribute acts.

Earlybird tickets for Bootleg Festival are now on sale through Skiddle, priced at just £20. Or buy one ticket, get one half price for a limited time only.
