The Bootleg Beatles are delighted to announce their 2018-19 tour of the UK starting this December.
The band along with their renowned string and brass ensemble will visit seventeen cities.
Tickets are on sale now from www.bootlegbeatles.com and direct from venues.
As ever, the band will perform favourites from the whole Beatles’ catalogue but will also bring a special focus onto some key tracks from the ‘White Album’ – playing many of them for the very first time!
As well as some of the best-known classics, the band will also be taking on more obscure tracks in an attempt to bring to life the breadth and depth of this incredible LP.
The ‘White Album’ is in many ways a counterpoint to ‘Sgt. Pepper’ – which The Bootleg Beatles toured to huge acclaim last year with the 80piece Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra – and not only in terms of the totally contrasting route taken on artwork.
Though it drew from a broad span of influences, the ‘White Album’ was created with a sparser sonic palette that saw song arrangements significantly stripped back.
This album, released 22 November 1968, also saw the band to a larger degree working independently of each other in their own creative niches. 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.
Since their inception in 1980 the band have performed hundreds of gigs across the globe, earning themselves an amazing reputation along the way.
Every tiny detail is meticulously covered from costumes to authentic period instruments; from their witty ‘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”.
