Beatles tribute band returns for another season
The first Beatle to set foot on American soil was George Harrison. He landed at Lambert Field in St. Louis when he was thirteen years old, here to visit his sister Louise who was living in southern Illinois. In later years when the Beatles were skirting across the continents, Louise was along helping George and keeping an eye out for her little brother. Today, she spends much of her time in Branson and appears regularly to introduce her hand-picked band, Liverpool Legends, and answer questions from the audience.
Headlining their own production in Branson since 2006, Liverpool Legends has been voted Best New Show, Best Band, and Best Show in Branson. They’ll be starting their seventh season off at the Icon Theatre, and their show was spotlighted by receiving the prestigious Branson’s Visitor Choice Award for Best Show in Branson for 2009.
Each of the Fab Four not only look remarkably like the Beatle they represent, but they each sound and act almost exactly like their chosen persona. The band has toured the world, playing in historic venues, such as Carnegie Hall and The Cavern Club in Liverpool; recording at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London; and performing with Denny Laine (co-founder of Wings with Paul McCartney), Pete Best (the original Beatles drummer), and the Boston Pops. They appeared on The Travel Channel’s Beatlemania Britain and headlined International Beatles Week in Liverpool where one hundred thousand Beatles fans jammed Victoria Street to hear them in concert.
Liverpool Legends perform songs spanning the entire career of The Beatles, both as a band and solo endeavors. With precise attention to every musical detail, along with costume changes, vintage instruments, and special effects, Liverpool Legends is as close to the real thing as you can get. And Louise’s involvement with Liverpool Legends makes it the only Beatles tribute band in the world with a close, direct biological link to the original Fab Four.
