It doesn’t matter if you’re eight or eighty, this is a show that spans generations as The Beatlemaniacs bring “Yesterday” here today! Nominated “Entertainer Of The Year” on Princess Cruises and voted ‘best musical act’, from the magic of Disney to theatres across the globe, The Beatlemaniacs transcend a live Beatles concert experience in an act that spans generations, supported by multiple wardrobe changes, choreographed lighting & visual effects as well as thought provoking modern video and multimedia. This is a live concert experience for both the baby boomers who want to feel nostalgic and relive the mania of the Fab Four, and younger kids who want to be a part of a live creation of the best pop music group of all time. The show is an emotional roller coaster of historic tragedy, humour, rock & roll and 1960’s nostalgia. The inventive musicianship and charisma of these lads will have you laughing, crying and screaming for more! You will see material that The Beatles never performed live, from the Ed Sullivan “Mop Top” era through the masterful Sgt. Peppers and later albums like “Abbey Road” and “Let It Be, as well as special solo tributes to John Lennon and George Harrison, The Beatlemaniacs deliver a rare and complete Beatles concert experience not to be missed!
