Having been together for the last ten years playing all over the UK and overseas, Imagine… The Beatles will take you back to the great days of the sixties from the early Cavern days through to Beatlemania, Sgt Pepper’s and beyond and they will be appearing at The Harlington, Fleet Road, Fleet on Saturday September 7 at 8pm.
Last September marked exactly 50 years since the first Beatles song was released and this year has the honour of marking 50 years since their first number one hit.
The two dates also have something else in common, with 2012 being the first time that top Beatles tribute act Imagine… The Beatles visited The Harlington in Fleet, and 2013 marking their return due to public demand.
Please, Please Me was the first of 50 British number one singles for arguably the best band of all time and The Beatles music is just as popular five decades later.
Operations manager Alex Robins said: “Last year we didn’t want to let one of the most important musical occasions pass by without marking it in some way, and the response from the public was great, with the show almost selling out.
“We received a lot of good feedback, so it seemed only right to bring them back this year to celebrate the first Beatles number one record.
“The band don’t take themselves too seriously and like a good joke or two with the audience (in Liverpudlian obviously) and their show appeals to people of all ages, we all know the songs.
“We want to transport people back in time to the cabaret clubs where bands would have played, so there won’t be conventional theatre seating, but our usual cabaret set up of chairs and tables instead, a dance floor for when you feel the urge and of course a bar open throughout to ensure plentiful refreshments.
“In order to do this the number of tickets will be limited to just 200, so everybody attending will be part of an intimate musical experience.
“This band is the nearest thing you can get to the original fab four. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the live video on their website.”
With costume changes, authentic vocals and instruments, “they really bring the Beatles to life right in front of your eyes.” Close your eyes, could it really be them?
Tickets are £12 in advance, £14 on the door. To book contact the box office on 01252 811009 or visit www.theharlington.co.uk .
