ON FRIDAY, May 30, one of the best Beatles tribute acts in Europe will be performing at Ionad Spóirt na Rosann in Dungloe for this year’s Dungloe and Donegal Mary selection for the Rosses town’s annual festival.
Ionad Spóirt na Rosann and The Mary from Dungloe International Festival are delighted to present The Classic Beatles, the most unique Beatles Tribute in the World.
That may sound like a bold statement, but it’s a fact! The Dublin quartet remains the only Beatles tribute in the world to have worked with famed Beatle producer Sir George Martin, as well as members of an ex-Beatle’s solo band.
A typical Classic Beatles show consists of two hours of the greatest songs in the Beatles’ songbook ‘performed with perfection and affection’ – Evening Herald. The show features real album gems as well as the obvious big hits.
The attention to detail doesn’t end with the delivery of the great songs, the band also partake in the witty banter for which The Beatles were equally famous.
The detail is followed through to the look of the show. The start of which, finds them in exact replica velvet collared suits made famous on the Ed Sullivan Show to 73 million viewers in 1964, complete with mop-tops.
At the mid way stage of the performance the band reappear dressed in the Sgt. Pepper outfits as worn by The Beatles on the cover of their ground breaking 1967 album.
In the final stage of the show, all four members appear on stage dressed as their alter-egos with longer hair circa White Album/Abbey Road and bring the show to a powerful climax featuring many of the songs The Beatles themselves had never played live.
The event also coincides with the all important annual selection of the local Marys for the festival. On the same night the Dungloe and Donegal Mary selection will also be held. Doors open at 9pm. There is a late bar and The Classic Beatles will be followed by a DJ.
