It’s ‘Fab Four Day’ In Coventry as THE MERSEY BEATLES Follow In Their Heroes’ Footsteps
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 Coventry’s Albany Theatre on a very special date.
The band’s GET BACK 2018 TOUR visits the very same towns, cities and historic British venues that the original Fab Four first rocked in the 1960s. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday December 15th via www.ticketmaster.co.uk
Fewer than 80 of the 200-plus British venues The Beatles played between 1957 and 1966 remain. Many of the historic dance halls and theatres that shook to the original Merseybeat sound have been demolished – including Coventry’s Matrix Ballroom and Coventry Theatre.
If Coventry ever wanted to declare its very own ‘Beatles Day’ then November 17th would be it. The world’s most famous band played Coventry in 1962 and 1963 – with two of their three concerts falling on November 17th.
Now, following in the footsteps of their heroes, and in a unique bid to celebrate both The Beatles’ music and the towns that helped shape that world-changing Rock 'n' Roll sound, The Mersey Beatles will play Coventry’s Albany Theatre on Saturday November 17th as part of their 17-date UK tour.
Full Price: £21.00
Age guidance: Suitable for ages 8+
Running time: 2 hours 10 mins (including 15-minute interval)
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.
Their stunning two-hour show – which brilliantly captures all the hits from Love Me Do to Let It Be – has won rave reviews around the world.
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.
Steven said: “This tour is going to be amazing! We are, of course, all Beatles fans and, as Liverpool lads we’ve been obsessed with the band since we were in school. It’s going to be great to follow in the Fab Four’s footsteps and truly recreate those special shows.”
Mark added: “We pride ourselves on bringing a true Beatles experience, covering all the eras from the days of The Cavern Club, through Beatlemania to Sgt Pepper and the band’s final gig on the rooftop of the Apple offices. We cannot wait to Get Back to where it all began for the greatest band of all time.”
