The Mersey Beatles
The Mersey Beatles are back on the road, touring across Europe and the United States through November 2018. Announced dates include stops at the Big Tribute Festival in Wales; the Delbrück Festival in Germany; Memphis, Tennessee; Chicago, Illinois; Liverpool, UK; Uppsala Sweden; Barcelona, Spain; Madrid, Spain; and Järvenpää, Finland.
The tour includes a tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles album Sgt Peppers. During the two-part show, the band will play the entire Sgt Pepper album live as well as the original Fab Four’s greatest hits.
Largely regarded as the best Beatles tribute band in the world, The Mersey Beatles concert experience is unforgettable. Each show features four costume changes and a multi-media backdrop.
From the haircuts to the costumes, instruments and unforgettable sound of The Beatles, The Mersey Beatles recreates the Fab Four’s style and sound brilliantly.
Played live and in the recorded key, the Mersey Beatles will perform nearly 40 of the band’s greatest hits. The band is known for interacting with the crowd in the same way the original Fab Four interacted with fans, and their live sound is spot on.
Unscripted and live, the Mersey Beatles have been called “the most authentic” Beatles tribute band by Julia Baird, John Lennon’s sister.
About the Mersey Beatles
Like the original Beatles, every member of the Mersey Beatles was born in Liverpool. The group, made up of childhood friends, has been recreating the Beatles sound since 1999.
All members have been fans of the Fab Four since childhood, when The Beatles were at the top of their record collection. The group consists of Mark Bloor, Steven Howard, Brian Ambrose, David Howard and Tony Cook. David Howard and Steven Howard are cousins. Steven Howard, Brian Ambrose and Mark Bloor all attended secondary school together. Tony Cook, friend from Liverpool, plays the keyboard on The Beatles later hits.
The Mersey Beatles began their career as a resident Beatles tribute band at the very same place that the Beatles started their career: The Cavern Club in Liverpool. The Mersey Beatles played here for an entire decade (2002-2012). By the end of their 10-year run, the band had played at The Cavern Club more times than The Beatles themselves.
The Mersey Beatles is the only tribute band with members born and bred in Liverpool.
In 2015, the band hit the road for a world tour, with stops in Italy, Spain and the U.S. The band embarked on four coast-to-coast tours of the U.S.
