The upbeat beatles set to rock martlets hall and Pavillion Theatre
Half a century after The Beatles’ first hit record, the UK’s premier Beatles band are rolling out their Fab Four homage across the UK…
Marking five decades since the release of Please Please Me, The Upbeat Beatles will take you on a magical history tour of The Beatles through their songs and their humour. Playing live music from the iconic band’s ten year canon, The Upbeat Beatles aim to have you dancing in the aisles and screaming like it’s 1963.
Since 1997 The Upbeat Beatles have been the best in the business at re-creating the excitement, raw energy and authentic sound of The Beatles themselves. From the humble depths of Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the heights of Beatlemania, to their final live performance atop of The Apple Building: The Upbeat Beatles simply cannot be beaten when it comes to their high production journey across the band’s career, and brilliant Beatles banter.
Having wrapped up their final tour in 1966, many classic Beatles records never made it to their original live shows. Never-performed songs such as I Am The Walrus, Strawberry Fields Forever, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Penny Lane and many more favourites have been meticulously recreated to finally bring these records to life. In honour of the band that shook the world, The Upbeat Beatles want to shake up your night.
John Wilson is the band’s producer and resident Beatles expert, having previously played Paul McCartney and starred in a short film with Ringo Starr. He says: “I knew from the first minute of the first day of rehearsals that The Upbeat Beatles show was going to be something special. Powerhouse vocals, spine tingling harmonies, punchy rhythm section and shimmering guitar solos: within eight bars you just know they’ve got all the right ingredients for a night you’ll never forget.
“But there is much more to a Beatles show than four wigs and a few snazzy outfits. Even with all the right guitars and amps you have a lot to live up to. You’ll come away from anUpbeat Beatles show with a smile on your face, knowing a lot more about the Beatles than 2 hours earlier!”
