Many tales to tell in city tat­too

Southport Visiter - - For The Family -

THE City of Liver­pool Tat­too – the first of its kind in the city – prom­ises to de­liver a show like no other next month, with bi­cy­cle ac­ro­bat­ics and py­rotech­nic-style flag-wav­ing to in­ter­sperse the rous­ing cho­rus of na­tional and in­ter­na­tional bands and dancers on dis­play.

The two-hour show will show­case an in­ter­na­tional fu­sion of more than 600 acts and artistes, brought to­gether to de­liver the spec­tac­u­lar mu­sic and dance sen­sa­tion which has won many awards in its na­tive Belfast.

And all the City of Liver­pool Tat­too’s per­form­ers have their own unique story to tell: Ar­tane band, from Dublin, has per­formed for ev­ery Pres­i­dent and Taoiseach of Ire­land, three Pres­i­dents of the United States, three Kings and Queens of the UK, and starred in a mu­sic video with U2.

Lume De Biqueira, fly­ing in from Spain for the Liver­pool show, is one of Madrid’s most cel­e­brated march­ing bands, hav­ing played for Pope John Paul II and Their Royal Majesties of Spain.

Dance troupe In­nova, famed for adding a mod­ern twist to Ir­ish danc­ing, will be fa­mil­iar to many hav­ing reached the semi-fi­nals of ITV’s Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, Se­ries 8.

A cast of 50 dancers will per­form at the City of Liver­pool Tat­too. The event is packed full of in­ter­na­tional flavours, in­clud­ing brass band Fan­fareko­rps der Ge­nie from the Nether­lands and the His­tor­i­cal Flag Wavers of Con­trada Di Cori from Italy. Scot­tish high­land dancers and the Ju­liana Bi­cy­cle Group will also per­form.

Closer to home, Liver­pool’s Im­pe­rial Corps of Drums will also take to the pres­ti­gious Echo Arena stage.

Of­ten the most an­tic­i­pated part of the show is the Massed Pipes and Drums.

The pow­er­ful per­for­mance of 160 mu­si­cians will be led by three times Se­nior Drum Ma­jor Brian Wil­son MBE, pipe ma­jor David Ogilvie (lone piper at the Ed­in­burgh Tat­too, Glas­gow Tat­too and Belfast Tat­too), and lead drum­mer Alan Craig, who leads the cur­rent world cham­pion Drum Corps of Liver­pool and Clyde Pipe Band.
