Mersey Beatles

Date: 31st August 2022
Time: Doors open 6:30
Location: Lydney Town Hall
Concert


Born on the banks of The Mersey river, and crafted in the historic cellars of The Cavern Club, The Mersey Beatles have been rocking sold-out audiences around the globe since 1999.
They are today rightly regarded as the world’s best-loved Liverpool-born Beatles tribute… just ask the hundreds of thousands of fans who have seen them over the last 20 years!
The Mersey Beatles were not dreamed up by a theatre impresario or West End producer… these lads are THE REAL DEAL!
They pride themselves on being lifelong friends whose passion for the greatest band of all time shines through in every performance.
Mark Bloor, Steven Howard and Brian Ambrose (that’s John, Paul and Ringo) attended high school together in Liverpool. Craig McGown plays George and is the baby of the band, just like the “quiet one” in the original fab four. Tony Cook completes the line up on keyboards and percussion.
The Mersey Beatles were the resident Beatles’ tribute at the world-famous Cavern for more than a decade between 2002-2012. They clocked up 600+ performances under the famed Mathew Street arches – almost twice as many gigs there as the original Fab Four played themselves.
Since leaving to tour the world, they have taken their pounding, pulsating and unmistakable ‘Mersey Beat’ sound to excited and sold-out audiences across Europe, USA, Asia and Australia.
While receiving world-wide plaudits (including glowing praise from members of The Beatles’ own families), The Mersey Beatles have never forgotten their roots and pride themselves on presenting the Fab Four in a most authentic and truly Liverpool-born way.
Now, back again, exactly 60 years since the Beatles played in 1962, this will be a great anniversary event.
Tickets tbc, you can join the waiting list for tickets via the town hall box office.

So… welcome back to Thumper, Blind Melon, Sticky Willy, Walter and Honky Tonk … The Unravelling Wilburys.

Their shows feature the boys take on their songs being usurped by Messrs Harrison, Dylan, Lynne, Orbison and Petty, back in the late 80s at Nashville, Tennessee. The story unravels, as is told in the show, and it comes to be that The Unravelling Wilburys have now stolen back what is rightfully theirs! Not only that, they have stolen some choice solo songs (allegedly) from Messrs Dylan, Lynne, Orbison, Harrison and Petty as compensation…………… and now happily play them in their shows!

The set list includes Wilbury songs such as: End Of The Line, Handle With Care, The Devil’s Been Busy, Last Night, Tweeter And The Monkey Man, She’s My Baby, Heading For The Light……………. And choice cuts such as: Pretty Woman, You’ve Got It (Roy Orbison), Mr Blue Sky, Evil Woman (Jeff Lynne’s ELO), I Won’t Back Down, Running Down A Dream (Tom Petty), Mr Tambourine Man, Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan), What Is Life, Here Come’s The Sun (George Harrison)………… and many more. All great songs in the folk/country/rock genres and plenty of humour throughout!
