All-Liverpool-Born Beatles Tribute Band Announces U.S. GET BACK TOUR
Following the success of their 2016 U.S. debut tour including a sold-out show in Memphis, The Mersey Beatles, an all-Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band and the house band for over a decade at the world-famous Cavern Club, will return to the Halloran Centre at the Orpheum as part of their Get Back Tour. The show will take place Saturday, February 18th, at 7:30 p.m. The Centre is at 225 S. Main Street Memphis, TN 38103.
The Mersey Beatles are no ordinary tribute band. The lads grew up as childhood and schoolmate friends, just like the Beatles! They are the official Beatles tribute band representing the City of Liverpool, and from 2002 to 2012, they were the resident tribute band at The Cavern Club, the nightclub in Liverpool, England, where The Beatles perfected their act before launching a global rock music revolution in the 1960s.
John Lennon's sister and Director of the Cavern Club endorses the band and traveled with them on their 40-date U.S. debut tour in 2016. The group was lucky enough to be playing in Memphis, one of her very favorite U.S. cities, over her birthday last year. She says, "There are a lot of Beatles tribute bands from all over the world, and I've seen them all, but The Mersey Beatles are the most authentic I have heard."
Since 1999, the band has played sell-out shows in more than 20 countries, recreating the Beatles' most popular hits. The show spans the Fab Four's entire catalogue with four costume changes and authentic Liverpool accents, wit and charm. The Mersey Beatles recreate the Beatles' sound and image with amazing accuracy using replica Hofner, Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars and VOX and Ludwig gear. This year, the band will be celebrating 50 years of what is arguably the most iconic and influential album of all time - Sgt. Pepper!
