in my life, so we got along very, very well and a couple of years later we got talking and we decided ‘Let’s form our own band,’” she recalled.
In order to do that, Harrison said she had to find musicians that would do justice to the Beatles music and to the Beatles — Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George and Ringo Starr.
“To me it was important to find the kind of guys that looked somewhat like The Beatles and that were really, really good musicians because Beatles music is not easy to play,” she said. “And then for me the most important thing was to try to find the kind of guys that if George was still here, they’d be the kind of guys that would be his buddies and I think we’ve succeeded. They’re really a great, great group of guys.”
Harrison said the Liverpool Legends — who headline their own production in Branson, Missouri, and have toured the world — try to cover as much of the Beatles career as they can in their performances.
“We do it with love and respect and fun and we want to make sure our audiences have a really good time. We encourage people to participate, get up and dance and just have fun,” she said.
Harrison said touring with the Liverpool Legends allows her to share a bit of her brother’s spirit with others.
“One of the last times that I saw him he gave me a big ol’ hug and he said ‘Pass it on,’ and that’s what I’ve been doing, I’ve been trying to pass on the Harrison hug,” she said, noting she encourages people to pass it along as well. “I tell people to not only accept the hug but to give it on and to tell people where it came from and to ask them to give it on because that’s my way of helping to keep my brother’s love flowing all across the planet.”
Tickets to see the Liverpool Legends range from $35.50-$57.50 and are available at the Savoy Theatre box office, which can be reached by phone at 842-1577 or online at www. savoytheatre.com.
