The Mersey Beatles 2019 World Tour – a sensational 50th anniversary celebration of the Fab Four’s legendary Abbey Road album – is coming to Lytham Festival.
In a show that is already wowing sell-out audiences across the globe, the world-renowned Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band will play the classic 1969 album in full – followed by a spectacular set of John, Paul, George and Ringo’s greatest hits.
This not to be missed show hits Lytham Festival’s Pavilion Stage at Lowther Pavilion on Tuesday 9th July, Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday!
This is the third time The Mersey Beatles have played Lytham Festival – with both previous Pavilion Stage shows complete sell-outs.
Abbey Road – which features such stunning tracks as Come Together, Something, Here Comes the Sun, and the ground-breaking 16-minute album closing medley – is regarded by many fans and critics alike as The Beatles’ greatest LP.
And it is brilliantly brought to life by The Mersey Beatles who exude the inner and outer spirit of the real thing, from the costumes, instruments, Scouse charm and, of course, that unmistakable era-defining, Liverpool-born sound.
Every concert is a hit-packed celebration of the greatest band of all-time, from the ‘Mop Top’ hits of Beatlemania, through the psychedelic creativity of Sgt Pepper to the melodic wonder of the Fab Four’s later work.
Formed in 1999, The Mersey Beatles – Mark Bloor (John), Steven Howard (Paul), Craig McGown (George) and Brian Ambrose (Ringo) – were the resident Beatles’ band at Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club for more than a decade where they racked up more than 600 gigs.
Since leaving The Cavern, they have toured the world many times over – winning legions of fans, including members of The Beatles’ own families.
John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird said: “The Mersey Beatles absolutely nail the sound of The Beatles. They have that brilliant ability to get people up on their feet dancing and John would have loved that!”
The Mersey Beatles 2019 World Tour sees them play theatres and festivals across America, Australia, the Far East, Asia and Europe.
Steven said: “This year is both our 20th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of Abbey Road so we wanted to give Beatles’ fans something really special.
“Abbey Road is regarded by many as one of the Beatles best albums, if not the best. However, as The Beatles stopped touring in 1966, they never played these amazing songs to a concert audience. Fans today rarely, if ever, get chance to hear this amazing album played live in full.
“It went down a storm on our recent sell-out US tour and we can’t wait to bring this all-new show to Lytham Festival. We have loved our two previous shows at the Festival and cannot wait to play there again.”
Lytham Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019.
The main Festival arena, situated on Lytham Green, has headline performances from Rod Stewart, Kylie Minogue, Stereophonics, The Human League and Hollywood Proms featuring Michael Ball and Sheridan Smith.
