Since the inception of Bootleg Beatles in 1980, the band has 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 the band’s “Mind-boggling accuracy”.
Neil Harrison (former John Lennon); Andre Barreau (George Harrison) and David Catlin-Birch (Paul McCartney) met in 1979 when they were all cast in the hit West-End production, Beatlemania. When the show finished its run the band, knowing the repertoire inside out, they decided to continue performing it and thus The Bootleg Beatles was born in 1980, along with the entire tribute genre.
What started as 4 musicians with black polo necks and a wig has evolved into The Bootleg Beatles’ lauded show which combines note-perfect renditions of Beatles repertoire, spectacular costume changes and a visually stunning video backdrop. The Bootleg Beatles faithfully recreate six phases of the Beatles meteoric rise from a basement (The Cavern in Liverpool) to a rooftop (The famous Apple concert in 1969) via Shea Stadium, Sgt. Pepper and the Magical Mystery Tour.
After 31 years of portraying as John Lennon in the Bootleg Beatles, Neil Harrison announced his intention to retire from performing in January 2011. Following an intensive audition process and much media speculation, in July 2011, the Bootleg Beatles announced Adam Hastings would don the wigs and glasses in the band. His debut performances with the Bootleg Beatles have been met with rave reviews from fans and critics alike and last July 2014, Andre Barreau retired. After many auditions, Stephen Hill was chosen to take on the role of George Harrison together with Steve White (Paul McCartney) and Gordon Elsmore (Ringo Starr).
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”.
There was never been a better time to immerse yourself in the magic of the Bootleg Beatles – do not miss the show that was been described by the BBC Radio’s Chris Evans as the “Off-the-scale fabulous”, and described by Mojo Magazine as “Flawless!”. You’ll love them – Yeah Yeah Yeah!
The world’s first and finest tribute band, The Bootleg Beatles, continue to thrill audiences performing their acclaimed homage to the Fab Four. The tribute band are touring the Philippines throughout July and will be stopping off in Manila on July 12, 2016 at Resorts World Manila, then the next stop in Davao on July 15, 2016 at SMX Convention Center, and the last stop will be in Cebu on July 16, 2016 at Waterfront Hotel.
