The Cavern Beatles



Friday 11th October 2024 at 7:30pm

For one night only

On February 9th 1961, The Beatles made the first of their 292 appearances at the now legendary Cavern Club in Mathew Street, Liverpool.

50 years on, The Cavern Beatles, a band fully endorsed and licensed by the same club will be coming to a venue near you with their remarkable show.

The show is a Magical History Tour through the works of the greatest pop music phenomenon. Replicating, in both sight and sound, the excitement and energy of Beatlemania, the psychedelic era of Sgt. Pepper, and the creative masterpieces of The White Album and Abbey Road.

Four costume changes and lighting scenes compliment the changes in musical complexity as the show develops to it’s climax.

The band’s cast members, as well as being talented instrumentalists and singers, are hugely dedicated Beatle fans, intent on recreating their individual character on stage. Their uncanny vocal resemblance to the Fab Four is due to their upbringing in the same place…Liverpool.

As ambassadors of “The most famous club in the world”, The Cavern Beatles bring to the stage the music that has now influenced 3 generations.

Their breath-taking attention to detail has drawn the attention of German music companies, Hofner Guitars and Pyramid Strings, both of whom now endorse them with their products.

With their widespread appeal being more apparent than ever in the varying age groups that continue to follow the band, The Cavern Beatles are widely regarded as being as close to the real thing as they are ever likely to get.

A special feature of the spring 2019 show will be a recreation of the Savile Row "rooftop concert" of 29th January 1969

“I've seen a number of pink Floyd tribute bands over the years and I can honestly say that Pinked Floyd are by far the best. Never have I seen a group full of SUCH incredibly talented musicians, a lead guitarist that's so good you can't take your eyes off him and a singer so unbelievably good you can't breathe… Pinked Floyd you nailed it!” (Joe Max)

“My heroes will never be forgotten as long as you are on the stage and that’s from a 68-year-old roadie of the original PF! You are another brick in the wall!" (David Larkin, former PF roadie)
