The Bootleg Beatles Christmas Show Newcastle City Hall December 2007

Laura and her friend Alisa were getting into the Beatles, and Alisa fancied seeing this well known tribute act. “The Bootleg Beatles re-live the sights and sounds of the Sixties in their multi-media stage show. Join the long-running tribute band when they trace the history of the Fab Four from the Liverpool Cavern to Sgt. Pepper and the Apple rooftop. This year, The Bootleg Beatles celebrate their 25th anniversary, not bad for a band that gave itself “six months max”, but has seen off everything from post-punk to Britpop.” read the publicity for the show. The Bootleg Beatles regularly draw capacity crowds to their concerts, and this gig was no exception; the City Hall was packed and everyone was ready for some fun and nostalgia in the run up to Christmas. The Bootleg’s are true to the originals and took us a journey from the early days in the Cavern, to the last days of the Beatles, with costume changes and all the great songs along the way. I’m not a great fan of tribute acts, and would not normally go to see one, but I really enjoyed the show. Its very well done, and a fun night out is guaranteed.
