The Mersey Beatles on Saturday 24th November 2018
After sold out shows in the USA, Australia and Europe, the world’s favourite Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band – THE MERSEY BEATLES – are embarking on an historic UK Tour including a not-to-be-missed show at Salisbury City Hall.
Fewer than 80 of the 200-plus British venues The Beatles played between 1957 and 1966 remain today as so many of the historic dance halls, theatres and cinemas that shook to the original Merseybeat sound have been demolished.
In a unique bid to celebrate both The Beatles’ music and the special places that helped shape that world-changing Rock 'n' Roll sound, The Mersey Beatles will play 12 original Fab Four venues in October and November 2018 as part of their 17-date UK tour.
The Beatles performed at this wonderful Wiltshire venue in June 1963 as Beatlemania took hold of the nation. They arrived by helicopter, having made a television appearance earlier in the evening, and performed for more than 1,600 fans.
Within a stunning two-hour show – which brilliantly captures all the hits from Love Me Do to Let It Be – The Mersey Beatles will play the exact same songs John, Paul, George and Ringo did at the venue, allowing audiences to really ‘Get Back in time for a true Fab Four experience’.
When it comes to stage performance, The Mersey Beatles brilliantly exude the inner and outer spirit of the original Fab Four from the costumes, the haircuts, the instruments and, of course, that unmistakable and legendary Liverpool-born sound.
Julia Baird, John Lennon’s sister, said: “The Mersey Beatles are the most authentic I’ve heard... and I’ve heard them all.”
Joe Flannery, Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein's assistant, added: “When I saw them play in The Cavern, they perfectly recreated the atmosphere that the original Beatles produced. It was just like listening to The Beatles again.”
Formed in 1999 in Liverpool by four school friends, The Mersey Beatles have toured the world many times over. And the band – Mark Bloor (John), Steven Howard (Paul), Craig McGown (George) and Brian Ambrose (Ringo) cannot wait to hit the road in 2018.
