The Bootleg Beatles tour visits 15 cities

The Bootleg Beatles are delighted to announce their December 2016 tour of the UK – the band along with their renowned string and brass ensemble will visit fifteen cities, tickets are available now from www.ticketmaster.co.uk. Since their inception in 1980 the band 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”, whilst the Mail On Sunday hailed their “Mind-boggling accuracy”.

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.
