IN­TER­NA­TIONAL hit trib­ute show Beatlemania on Tour will take au­di­ences back to the hey­day of the world’s favourite pop act when it rolls out across Aus­tralia and into Bun­bury on Septem­ber 27.

The spec­tac­u­lar two-hour show recre­ates a true Bea­tles ex­pe­ri­ence with stun­ning cos­tumes, state-of-the-art light­ing and pro­duc­tion and replica in­stru­ments.

More than 30 of the Bea­tles’ most trea­sured hits will be per­formed live on stage in­clud­ing All My Lov­ing, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, She Loves You, Hey Jude and more.

Mak­ing up the band is four Aus­tralian per­form­ers; Cameron Char­ters, who sings live as Paul McCart­ney, Zac Coombs, as John Len­non, Brent McMullen, as Ge­orge Har­ri­son and Ben Harper as Ringo.

Char­ters said the quar­tet had paid care­ful at­ten­tion to de­tail in the cre­ation of the show, which in­cluded per­fect­ing their char­ac­ters’ man­ner­isms and ac­cents, right down to us­ing the same brand of amps.

“Paul McCart­ney is a left­handed bass player for a start, so I had to switch around and play left-handed, which was a bit of a chal­lenge,” he said.

“He sings quite high gen­er­ally, so that is also some­thing that takes a bit of work, to be able to hit all those high notes.

“The Bea­tles were very cheeky as well, so we play up on that too.”

Char­ters said the show was a “time­line” of the Bea­tles’ ca­reer, start­ing from the early days in Ham­burg, be­fore Pete Best was re­placed by Ringo Starr.

Fol­low­ing sold-out shows across the US, Canada, Dubai, Hong Kong, New Zealand and South Africa, Beatlemania on Tour has proven to be a must-see spec­tac­u­lar for Bea­tles fans.
