Com­ing to­gether for the Fab Four

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS - lmur­phy@ir­ish­times.com

The Dublin Bea­tles Fes­ti­val was orig­i­nally in­tended as a one-off cel­e­bra­tion to mark the 50th an­niver­sary of the Fab Four’s foray into Ire­land, but it proved so suc­cess­ful that it has been re­vived for a sec­ond year and will run from Novem­ber 7th-9th across sev­eral venues in the city cen­tre. The open­ing night will see The Bea­tles Show at the Twisted Pep­per, en­com­pass­ing the short play Death and the Bea­tles Fan and acous­tic sets by Jonathan Ward and Scot­tish trib­ute act Re­volver, while a free ses­sion runs at The Oval the same night and fea­tures a num­ber of Ir­ish acts in­clud­ing Big­gles Flys Again cov­er­ing Bea­tles clas­sics. On Satur­day, The Work­man’s Club hosts a Bea­tles-themed ta­ble quiz and a full per­for­mance from Re­volver and more. Sun­day sees a screen­ing of The Rut­les All You Need is Cash and a pub­lic in­ter­view with Rut­les co- founder Neil Innes, and trib­ute band Bea­tles for Sale close the fes­ti­val with a gig at Twisted Pep­per.
