Beatles’ brilliance is reborn
The hits and the magical journey of pop music legends the Beatles come alive with Beatlemania on Tour at Albany Entertainment Centre this month.
The show focuses on the best-known moments in the Beatles’ musical career, including their Hamburg, Cavern and The Ed Sullivan Show concerts.
The show is equipped with authentic costumes and replica instruments, sure to ignite the best of the Beatles’ vibe.
Cameron Charters, who plays Paul McCartney in the show, said the band used quick costume changes and video screens to tell the story of the most influential band and each of its members.
“The main reason would have to be that they have a lot of great songs, but they were also very unique characters with many quirks that make it interesting to replicate them,” he said of their success.
“We have been watching live videos for on-stage movements and listening to interviews and on-stage banter to mimic speaking voice.
“There are the obvious things like having the right gear and learning the music and vocal harmonies, but there are also more subtle things like the way Ringo (Starr) hits from side to side across his hi-hats or how hard John Lennon digs into his guitar strings.”
The show has been running for 10 years and has developed over the years to present the most precise replica of the band possible.
Charters said with so many hits, the crowd would light up to most of the set list, but Hey Jude was a clear stand-out.
Tickets to the September 29 show are available online at ticketek.com.au or the AEC box office.
