Bootleg Beatles

by admin on March 17, 2009

bootlegbeatlesThe Bootleg Beatles a tribute band were formed in 1980 by the West End cast of the musical Beatlemania. They played their first gig in March 1980. What I find fascinating is that it took them 10 years before the got noticed in the UK, helped by Oasis who enabled them to support their act, which in turn threw them into the mainstream.

It certainly shows that determination and hard work can pull through. Today they have preformed more than 4000 concerts and have not looked back since. They were also the first Western rock band to tour the U.S.S.R and performed at Glastonbury.

They will be in Manchester at the Apollo Theatre Saturday 12th December 2009 – 7.30pm
