The Classic Beatles
It’s one thing to cobble together cover versions of a few tunes, but to base an entire stage show on one band’s back catalogue is a completely different matter. When that band is The Beatles, the performance must really be first class. That is just what the Classic Beatles deliver, doing it with style, panache and a sprinkling of zany showmanship that leaves even the most demanding Beatle fanatic with little to quibble about When acclaimed Beatles producer Sir George Martin brought his sell-out Beatles tribute show ‘A Night To Remember’ to the National Concert Hall in Dublin, he invited members of The Classic Beatles to perform alongside his 70-piece orchestra and many elite members of the Irish music industry. Martin himself singled out The Classic Beatles for lavish praise, so much so, that he invited the lads back to perform at a star-studded MTV Special, recorded at the MTV Studios in London in October 2001, while the band were showcased on television and in the press. Proof if proof were needed of their authenticity as the Fab Four. Apart from those milestones and gigs in the top venues all over Ireland (including to over 60,000 people in the Phoenix Park in Dublin), The Classic Beatles have graced six international Beatles conventions and two at home in Ireland. From an international perspective they are reckoned to be among the top three Beatle bands in the world.
